Has that old duke got some upgrades or has Rutter found sumat, dont think he will but what a popular championship win it would be. And whats the bet that if he does Ducati will claim it, even thow they wont even let the team put Ducati on there team clothing.

That ducati is trick. He said in an interview that he got some map settings from ducati so he must have trick parts to cater for the maps. Rutters style suits ducati. He wouldn't be doing as well if he was on honda or suzuki!!

I really can't see Michael winning the thing overall but, after Ducati telling John Hackett that he (Rutter) wasn't good enough to warrant factory support, boy has shown them they were wrong and how.

Yes the Ducati "Suits you Sir", but it still has to be ridden up the sharp end, and that extra aggression, that confidence brings, is the real difference between 2nds and 3rds this year and 7ths, 8ths, and lower last season.

Go Michael !!!! :D....and hang your heads in shame all the know all's :? on here who said he was finished and yesterdays man.

He got a WSB spec motor for the Knockhill round which he said was easier to ride - his previous BSB motor didn't have intake restrictors.

Pretty amazing performance by Rutter - it is obvious his bike has less down the straights than the fours.

Michael has shown the best way of silencing the Ducati doubters by having a cracking season. Has shown what a brilliant rider can do! Knockhill was unbelievable.

will be at Cadwell, Croft and Oulton screaming my head off!!!!!
