Saturday racing was good.
No spoilers, just oilers on Clearways.

Just booked tickets for the weekend of this year's (2018) BSB final at Brands on 13 and 14 October, we'll be camping overnight to see all three races.

It's going Haslam's way ATM, but then, we said that last year; let's see if he blows it again or finally gets a championship.

Wonder if Shakey Byrne will be fit enough to ride the last round?

Anyone else going?

Spoiler.....dont read on if you haven't watched it yet























Championship went as expected, the most interesting thing today was the demo laps by the Ducati v4, looks very impressive, when piloted by pirro, anyway.
Let's see how well it goes in the rain tomorrow!

great racing in the wet conditions on sunday ... the 1st BSB race was epic!

I am sure if you were stood at the track with rain water running down your neck and your boots full of water, it might have lost some of the fun, but sat on a sofa in a nice dry house it made great TV

+1

I enjoyed watching the racing on both days on TV, although I wouldn't have wanted to be racing in the wet, especially the 2nd race on Sunday, so unpredictable as ever,

The problem was that the short circuit gets a lot more action and so is more polished and more slippery when wet.
Having said that there were a few spectacular saves, as well as a few offs.
