XAVIER CRASHES OUT

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Xavier Simeon made a good start to the Superstock 600 European Championship race at Silverstone and was sixth at the end of the first lap. He then moved up to fifth two laps later, but his dreams of contesting a podium vanished when he crashed on lap eight - fortunately without any serious injury.

Italian Corti (Yamaha) led the race from start to finish and ran out the winner four seconds ahead of his nearest rival, Frenchman Tiberio (Honda), with fellow countryman Berger (Honda) third.

XAVIER - DNF (8 laps)

I am disappointed because, when I was in fifth, I thought I had a good chance of getting a good result. It's a great shame because this is a hard championship and you need to take as many points as you can in every race. I intend making up for it in the next round at Misano.

Results
1 Corti (I-Yamaha), 2 Tiberio (F-Honda), 3 Berger (f-Honda), 4 Canepa (I-Kawasaki), 5 Napoleone (F-Kawasaki), 6 Antonelli (I-Kawasaki), XAVIER SIMEON (B-Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra), DNF
