TROY CORSER yesterday seized the lead in the World Superbike Championship after a dramatic day in the fourth round at the Albacete circuit in Spain.

The Australian took second and third places in the two 20-lap races and, although he has yet to win a race so far, he enjoys a seven-point lead over the second-placed Carl Fogarty.

The Italian Pier-Francesco Chili won his first race of the championship in a wet opener. Fogarty stormed away with the second in drier conditions, winning by six seconds from Aaron Slight of New Zealand.
