Apparently yesterdays "Man of the meeting" was a toss up between Hopper and Zemke with the EVO guy getting the nod.. Whitham mustn't have seen Alastait Seeley p1ss all over the runaway leader in Supersports class twice eh.. 7 seconds in one race 9 in the other.. Still 2009 saw Seeley win 9 races on the spin and he didn't get one then either.. 2010 runaway win in the p1ssing wet rain at Brands.. I think its safe to say James has his favourites and Seeley ain't one of them.. Nevermind us Seeley fans know who was the man of the meeting yesterday.. Keep it up Wee Wizard..

Hard to argue with Seeley being man of the meeting Guru
Two wins
Two poles
Two fastest laps
Never headed in any session that mattered all weekend
Where have you been Guru been a long time missing
American boys had as much experience of this track as everyone else (none) so they should of been on it
Your boy looks good now the bike has a trick gearbox

Fook me boys and girls.. You can hit the disagree button all you want.. Can't argue with mathematics.. Most points scored.. Most races won.. Most pole positions.. Most fastest laps.. Biggest winning margin.. Twice.. Why don't some of you post something to tell me why he wasn't the man of the meeting.. Any fooker can hit a disagree button.. Alastair Seeley man of the meeting absolutely no doubt about it.. Seeley was as new to the track as everybody else.. His achievements were greater than everyone elses.. That's just factual..So why did darling James go for an American EVO bike rider.. To raise someones profile maybe??

Bike Race Guru Alister Seeley was the man of the meeting in the real world.Zemke finished where he did in race 2 because of the large amount of riders that didnt start or didnt finish.Gowla had the same result in race one when the grid was full so in my opinion he acheived more than Zemke.
Whats it matter if he didnt win the £2.99 bottle of cheap plonk..
Unless you are called Ben Wilson you will never get man of the meeting award unless you are in the superbike/evo class.

@ Rusky.. You make my point exactly.. Like I said someone needs their profile raising.. Again the disagree buttons are pressed without any debate coming back the other way.. How much the plonk costs though is irrelevant.. The rider of the meeting was given to Zemke.. As far as I'm aware his results didn't stack up against Seeleys.. Can't use the excuse he was new to the track coz everybody was..

Errr, Seeley is on a semi factory Suzuki against a grid full of riders on non factory machines pretty much.

The Triumphs are about 5 years old, and even WIlsons Kwakker I doubt has factory help.

I grant you all he rode very well, but wouldn't you expect a guy who has won Superstock a d BSB races to in that class?

Zemke is totally new to the series, tyres, bike and stuff and beat Richards fair and square second time out on the same bike!

The people who are in the know about racing know that Seeley gave the best performance over the weekend.
When it comes to assessing a riders performance over the weekend people go on the TSL website and study the results.
Seeley was never headed in any session.a gentlemans outfit..TWICE.in one weekend.

Seeley "Man of the meeting" by a million miles
First time they've dropped the race box in it yeh
Factory bike or not Wilsons bike has base settings for every track bar this one
Mmmmm thers a surprise give Seeley a track nobodies seen before and a few extra bits
Bye bye Wilson
Credit where its due I know the Guru is biased and its only a cheap bottle of plonk but Seeley was head and shoulders above anybody else
Those winning margins are unheard of in Supersports
