WSB: Toseland does the double

Brit extends championship lead to 66 points

Toseland...sixty-six points clear after two race wins

JAMES TOSELAND delighted British fans by winning both WSB rounds at Brands Hatch, earlier today.

The Brit took race one comfortably from Troy Corser with Max Biaggi taking third place on his GSX-R1000 Suzuki.

The Yorkshireman had to work harder in race two, but took the chequered flag two seconds ahead of his nearest rival, Noriyuki Haga. Australian, Troy Corser, took the third slot on podium.

The brace of wins means Toseland now leads the championship by 66 points from Haga with just six races remaining.
