All credit to Tommy for a strong and faultless ride, but I've got to say that the race of the day was BSS. That race was simply STUNNING. Hammer and tongs action from Ben Wilson and Alistair Seeley from the first yard of the first lap to the last inch of the last. Race of the decade!

Agree completely with BSS race comments. Whoever takes the title out of Seeley or Wilson will have totally deserved it IMO. Hope to see both of them onboard decent BSB machines next year. Also hope the guys involved in the 2 crashes aren't too badly injured, both incidents looked really nasty.

indeed, thoughts for all the fallers, a couple of really horrible crashes - didnt see them originally but just watched it all on the re-run. Seeing Max Hunt get hit square in the face was not nice at all. There's an update on his condition on the BSB site.

So will BSB be applying the same points system rules to supersport in the future? After all its clearly so BORING for the spectators to have to endure only 2 riders dueling it out for the championship under a conventional points system.......
To have droves of riders pulling in to change tyres just to return to the track to set a fast lap for grid position in the next race is clearly farcical as well as dangerous....Rutter did it at Knockhill now they're all at it. Its quite feasable that if Kiyo could pull his finger out his ars* and win the championship if he squeaks into the top six...that would be a travesty when others have put in the work and scored the points over the majority of the season only to have that virtually wiped was, and remains, a nonsense. Our champion will be the one who wins fairly under the conventional scoring system over the whole season.

For someone who hates what Palmer and Higgs have done to the main superbike class with there farcical shootout, I am now a spectator who follows the Superstock 600 and supersport 600 classes with more interest. With racing like that from flag to flag, who cares if they are ahead by a country mile points wise. When will they realise that a three round championship is NOT NECESSARY. We just want to see close racing MR Palmer and in the 600's that's what we get. I enjoyed his comments life on TV where he said the riders could earn good money from BSB. Not sure which rider/s he was refering too, but I'm not sure Loris baz would agree with you Jonathan.

Steve - are you sure he didn't say that he made good money from BSB? What a crock of sh1te! So many of the riders are struggling to make it to all the rounds and some have even binned the BSB off to race in other championships, like Thundersport, Derby Phoenix etc because they're racing for the love of it and can't afford to run for no coverage.

Let's face it - how much coverage did any of the Supersport riders bar the front five or six actually get? I was at Brands all weekend so didn't see the coverage.
