Can anyone provide me with the actual points total as opposed to the Shootout points total? I know Tommy caught up Shakey a lot over the weekend and want to see where they are in real terms.

Nah... That's not a foregone conclusion by any means. In Shakey's triumphant years (2003 and 2008), he was 1st 4 times, and 2nd twice at the 6 races at these tracks in 2003, and 1st 3 times, 2nd twice and 3rd once in 2008.

Additionally, Hill has not raced at Donnington (old layout or new) and actually finished both races since 2004 !! Last year there was no BSB at Donny, in 2009 Hill didn't race (injured ?), in 2008 Shakey won both races, Hill didn't race (WSB ?) in 2007 Hill DNF'd both races, in 2006 he finished 6th in race two, DNF'd race 1, in 2005 Hill DNF'd race 2 and was 8th in race 1, in 2004 he was 10th and 14th.

Hill also didn't fare overly well at Silverstone last year either - 8th and 5th on what was meant to be a championship winning bike.

Hopkins also hasn't seen the new Donnington layout, but probably has the most recent experience of Silverstone, and went well there. All depends how his hand is...

And then we come to Brands (3 times). And we know how well all 3 of th

all 3 of them went there a few weeks ago. Still think Brands is Shakey's territory though.

Also keep in mind that these 3 rounds could all largely be wet, and if they are, my money is on Shakey ala Croft and Thruxton earlier this year. Pissed over the whole field in the wet.
