Is this the only way Ellison is going to beat his tam-mate this season?
Correct me if i'm wrong but i think GSE/Airwaves have now won all except one race out of 19 so far!!!

Well, I doubt Leon is losing any sleep over this, and under the circumstances, what rider would consider pulling in on the last lap when leading?
If the conspiracy theory is true, it's all rather pointless. BSB has been depressingly mediocre this year, with Leon the best of an otherwise average to poor bunch. Anyone shelling out their hard-earned readies on this fare needs their head sorting.

All BS aside,I want to say congratulation to James on a well run race!! Starting 8th on the grid and on the 3rd row,to finish 3rd and a for sure 2nd in the 2 races is a job well done. The DQ for Leon was misfortunate,but whoever was in 2nd was going to get the win,and James was the one that was there!!!!

yesterday Barachello drove the final 2 laps with smoke spewing out the back of the brawn all over the racing line,,nothing done,,so im sorry for Camier,,but it wont affect the championship outcome.
I just hope Camier along with Crutchlow go to Moto2.I think these guys can put Britain back on the map for the blue riband Motogp.
Lets remember in the last 3 years Camier had ridden,Honda,Ducati and Yamaha.NO testing on this yamaha either but he comes out and destroyed everyone.As someone said before,Camier used to beat Stoner most of the time back in the 125cc days!!!!

looking at the new kawasaki sponsor, perhaps they should be targeted as the the title sponsor for BSB next year.....

With no Airwaves or HM Plant sponsor money next year, the grid might start to look thinner still. For sure Leon will move on to find some more competitive racing. Oh for the days of the Barry Nutley "filling in the Ducati sandwich", or the Fred Clark "ten wheel freight trains"

Easton isn't on a full factory blade you knob, He's on a BSB factory blade, about 20 BHP down on the WSBK spec Blade. The airwaves Yamahas are almost full factory WSBK bikes, albeit down on 10 BHP. The Yams are better bike, better power delivery etc. HRC have pulled almost all their peeps out, aside from the HM Plant team, run by ex WSBK Honda team manager. Get your facts right before mouthin off. Getting sick of hearing idiots thinking they know best about what is going on in racing.

You've missed the point. The context of my earlier post was that I would LIKE to see easton on full HRC spec kit, and similarly other riders with kit to match (andrews, guintoli etc), in order to see some closer racing. The Walkers, Rutters, Harris's and Richards have had their chance. If you look at the points of Easton, Ellison and Camier, and then the points of the also rans, it ain't pretty. 399.5, 302, and 258, and then 120 for fourth :p

Leon's bike was smoking....fact! It was oil, we were there, however, whilst I can understand Leon, amongst the confusion carrying on, (and I am a massive fan of Leon) his actions risked the safety of other riders, and contravened the most basic rule of motorcycle racing! Had it been Josh Brookes I am sure he would've got a ban!

I can't believe some of the comments I've read. It doesn't matter if Leon's bike was smoking on the 1st lap or the last lap, the rules state that once a rider has been shown the orange/black flag he has to pull off the circuit at the earliest opportunity. I don't blame Leon for running on the the finish though - I'd have done the same thing - but in doing so, he's passed numerous marshal posts and incurred the wrath. Nothing to complain about really. The only thing I was surprised at was Colin Wright not taking the news too badly.

You guys are idiots talking about a fix, this is not F1... As for Palmer not being about bikes, that man has done so much for circuits they have picked up for MSVR. Who remebers cadwell and snetterton before those days? Toilets they were. He has done so much for motorcycle racing especially at club level, you guys just have over active imaginations.

As for Camier, he can't and never will be able to hack it at World Championship level. How good was he up against the rest at Donington Park huh? Byrne was twice as good as Leon will ever be and look at hime at WSBK level. Camier has no hope, he will trundle round at mid pack to bottom end, top ten if the leaders fall off... :) :p
