Some more terrific racing showing once again how entertaining BSB has been this season. For some reason I'm enjoying BSB far more than WSBK this year, but then I'm enjoying Moto2 more than MotoGP too.
The first corner crash was a real shame for the outcome of the championship, effectively reducing it now to Hopper vs Hill, but I guess things can still change. Very impressed by Hopper's silky smooth riding, and Shakey's comeback through the pack from the back was really pretty sensational. There's a lot of skill on show in BSB, it's great championship.
Here's hoping it goes down to the last lap of the last race.

My sentiments as well Bill, the WSBK this year seems a bit limp compared to BSB.

Well done hopper, shame Laverty and Byrne weren't in the equation, but that's racing.

Great job Hopper...

I would to see Hopper, Shakey or Hill win as they're the most deserving this season but i think Hopper deserves it a little more because he's had a difficult last few years.

Silverstone next... it'll be difficult for anyone to beat him there... remember when he did a wildcard there at the World Superbikes.

I don't know if it's correct to say Hopper deserves to win the title. He is, after all the first American to win a BSB round, and it would be pretty awesome if he were the first American to win a BSB title. But to say he deserves it more, I think that's really not correct. All the guys racing at the pointy end deserve a title...if they win enough to earn it. I think for riding tracks for the first time in many cases, he's done a great job to put himself into the lead for the title. He's in an unfamiliar series, on mostly new to him tracks, and an unfamiliar team. I'd say unfamiliar bike also, but he rode a GSXR in the AMA last year. I think he's got as good a chance as any of the top four to take the title home. Too bad we don't BSB on Speed anymore. I'd like to follow this years title chase closer than on the net.

True class always shows through, very impressive. If only there was enough funding for Hopper to take his team to WSB, cant say they dont deserve it!
