2011 World Superbike

For the fourth time in the 2011 World Superbike Championship, Carlos Checa did the double. The fourth arrived Sunday at Silverstone, Round 9 of 13.

Besides taking two wins and extending his points lead to 62 over the reigning World Superbike Champion Max Biaggi (Alitalia Aprilia), Checa also gave Ducati its 300th- and 301st-World SBK win.

Joining Checa on the podium in both races was the Yamaha World Superbike duo of Eugene Laverty and Marco Melandri, respectively.

Here are some video highlights of both races, with Silverstone Race 1 above, and Silverstone Race 2 below.
