The HM Plant Honda still retains the series lead, but Hopkins is now just one point adrift in terms of podium credits.

A tough but fairmove and thankfully superbike racing dosen't appear to have been infiltrated by over zealous stewards like Grand Prix racing has, otherwise that would of been a ride-through and 20 seconds for Hopper.

I see that Corsi in the 125 race was handed a penalty for an "illegal manoeuvre" - what sticking his elbow out to another rider whilst racing to the finish line. What a joke GP racing has become this year with these ridculous penalties.

Slightly off topic, but Cortese was purposely forcing another rider to the edge of the straight at 140mph... Hopper was trying to get past and went in too hot

@LJC inn my opinion Cortese's arm was out to stop him from coming together with Gadea. On the run to the line Cortese moved left and it was Gadea that decided to go further left to overtake then Cortese moved left again but this time Gadea had to move as his front was level with the back of Sandro. Just racing and hard racing at that as he didn't move off his line to let Gadea have more room (not that Sergio was in danger off touching the grass) But as race control did it to Zarco in Barca they have no choice but to do it to anyone else who does it.

Why Roy does the WSBK grid need more back markers? Shakey has proved to be nothing more than a mobile chicane when playing with the big boys best he sticks to the rank rotten BSB with its dearth of talent eh?

No.67 so if shakey and hopper are pushing each other all the way this season and shakey leading the championship at the moment does that mean that hopper could nt ride in wsb either as he is one of the rank rotten bsb riders with no talent along with tommy hill
