On Sunday 1st August Yamaha Sterilgarda World Superbike rider Cal Crutchlow stormed to victory with a superb double win at his home race on the Silverstone circuit in the UK. The young British rider had dominated the entire race weekend, putting in MotoGP level qualifying times and taking complete ownership of the new extended Silverstone circuit layout. So fierce was his pace aboard the 2010 Yamaha WSB YZF-R1 that in the second race he delivered the fastest lap of the race just one lap from the finish line.
"Silverstone was an incredible experience for me", said Cal Crutchlow. "Everyone always wants to win at their home track but with seven British riders in the championship there was a huge amount of competition for the wins. The wins are a credit to the whole Yamaha team who worked so hard to give me a package to win on. We"ve been steadily improving our set up and development all year to achieve this, I believe we can go on and repeat the success at the following three rounds."
