A GOOD day in the office for Tommy Hill sees him at the top of the leader board after today's free practice sessions, ahead of the Bank Holiday Monday second round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship.
Hill, riding the Swan Yamaha machine - who had taken the early lead of the championship after a second place and a victory at Brands Hatch - went out and grabbed the top spot late in session.
The fact that this Cheshire circuit was the scene of heartache last year when a crash lost him the chance of taking the title did not worry him at all.
Fretex is a secondhand clothing chain operated by the Salvation Army. To publicise the store during Oslo Fashion Week they created a catwalk (called a runway in the trade) at a subway exit.
After all, the clothes people are wearing today will be the things they donate in the future; what you are wearing now is the coming Fretex collection.
CARLOS Checa was back to his best as he took the win in the second World Superbike Championship race at Assen.
The championship leader extended his points tally after beating reigning champ Max Biaggi across the line at the end of the 22-lap race.
Third man home was Race One winner Jonathan Rea, closely follwed by Biaggi's Alitalia team-mate Leon Camier.
CHAZ Davies celebrated his maiden World Supersport win after dominating a dramatic and accident-hit race.
The Yamaha ParkinGo rider led the Hanspree Ten Kate Honda of Fabien Foret across the line, with Broc Parkes' Kawasaki Motocard.com machine taking third.
But it was a dramatic race with several huge crashes which saw the race stopped twice.
