Looks like Alex Lowes was faster than Kiyo on a bike I'm presuming he only got on for the first time this morning? Really looks like this kid might be something special.Best wishes to Stuart Easton,hope to see him back in action soon.

Jenny Tinmouth has announced that she has left the Splitlath Motorsport British Superbike team with immediate effect.

Speaking this morning, Jenny said “It's not a decision I've taken lightly as its always been my ambition to race in Superbikes. I'm absolutely gutted to be leaving the championship but things have not gone as I expected in the team.

I feel I should leave whilst there is still time to get some valuable racing in this season. I would really have liked to stay in Superbikes and it has been a very hard decision to make. I am very grateful to Splitlath and to team principal John for giving me the opportunity. I wish the team the best of luck in the future.”

What makes me laugh about the Jenny Tinmouth situation is that if the full Superbike has proven to be too much of a handful for her, then why didn't that show up in pre-season testing ? It must have been a factor that the team would be very much thinking might be the case even back when they were contemplating signing her, so why was that fact not established or ruled out before the season started ?

Likewise, if she felt the team was not performing as the hoped it would, well... has she really given it a decent amount of time to make that decison ? She didn't race at Brands (supposedly due to lack of parts), crashed out at Oulton in practice and also at Croft, so she didn't ACTUALLY race proper this season at all. Perosnally, I think it stinks to me... of money, and she's been sacrificed in favour of Hudson Kennaugh.
