I hope he gets in ahead of Kiyo, the amount of luck Kiyo has had is incredible. Brands a few years ago Haslam chasing him down and shakey falls of handing the title etc etc.

Shot out last year etc etc

Even though Cadwell is HM Honda's home circuit, I think Michael will comprehensively beat Kiyo there. I don't think Brookes is in any danger as he is lightning fast around Cadwell, as well as being great fun to watch.

If Kiyo does turn his season around, it will surely be the great escape of the year. He honestly does not deserve to be champion this year and Rutter does deserve to be in the shootout.

HM have been testing their last week! But I do hope the old gitt gets in the top 6. If it was not for the spectators I wish it would rain.

As a card carrying fence sitter I'd like to see both Kiyo AND Rutter go into the top 6 shootout.

They're both gifted in their own ways.
Both have been let down by bike issues - Rutter's packs up, Kiyo's often won't give feedback.

This 'He's past it / just lucky / blocking a ride for a better rider / whatever prejudice you wanna roll out' carping is pathetic.

You know what the real problem is?

The top 6 concept sucks.
Totally and unreservedly sucks.

Its the 'Let's Fk the season just so we can prevent a Camier walking awauy with it all replay' concept.
And why?

I do wish Ducati would give MR a bit of help. Rutter's bike is one of the old Kennedy / Buildbase bikes from 3 or 4 years ago, with some modest upgrades. How is he expected to compete against the latest Yamaha's or Honda's with such a package? Just getting anywhere near the shoot-out is an achievement in itself. Give him a Checa-spec bike and let's see what he can do then.

I would love to see Rutter in the final shootout
His bike is old and he is riding the ******** off it, and I bet HM Plant are embarrassed
.

Kyio does not like getting a battle with anyone, so fingers crossed he get's held up and starting from 18th there is a good chance he will.
