from what i read yesterday it seems he will be missing the next 2 races due to his injured thumb anyway so does this mean his ban will take place after his injured thumb has healed?

If not and it takes place whilst he is injured then i find this a complete disgrace!!!

Lets not forget that ever rider makes mistakes and crash and occasionally they take other riders with them , it was just unfortunate for Brookes that he took 6 others with him !!!!!!!
The biggest mistake of the day for was the rule book , how can they justify giving the result they did , Andrews who I think is a very underestimated rider deserved the race win Walker and Hill on the podium too , surely this rule needs to be changed in the future

People here are blowing this out of proportion a tad. Ive seen far more negligent incidents receive no penalty at all! No racer WANTS to crash, Josh got caught out by a bump on the inside of the track, which can happen when you don't know the track that well.

"People here are blowing this out of proportion a tad."

But the organisers have had ample time to review all the evidence. If after careful consideration, they decide a ban is merited, they must surely feel it's deserved?

Lads and Ladies
Lets look at the facts, the blokes been in BSB for 5 rounds including Donnington and Mallory, he's managed to take out one of the major title contenders for god knows how long, he then goes on to ride well'ish and then can't find a way round a tight twisty track so wipes out 6 other riders trying too hard!!! I understand riders all want to win but come on, Safety first. It's just an addition that he wrecked the chances of Andrews getting his maiden win. Personally I think he should be put in Super Sports for a year then get 'promoted' to BSB, let Plater have a good crack at it, he showed what he can do at Brands.
