This weekend is going to be mint!

F1 - WSB AND BSB! Fantastic. I predict a Hopper domination! And I for one will not be dissappointed. I think he deserves it this year, but who am I to say...

Go John!

Hopper's time was done on a zero rear, a qualifier. He is trying to unsettle Tommy with unrealistic lap times. No need mate, the race is on Sunday!

@raymond- I can categorically tell you that Hopper was on an SC0 rear- 2 white lines around the tyre when new- for the last 3 laps in FP2. This is the softest race tyre available in BSB, there are no qualifiers. No way will it do race distance-14 laps- so the teams use them as qualifiers. Fact. To put it into perspective, he went 1.4 seconds faster on it than on the SC1. Look at the time sheets on TSL website.

this is a hard one for me.im a big shakey fan,the man is a class act on and off a motorcycle,and those fast bikes videos back in the day left an indelible impression.
tommy hill has worked so hard to come back from so many injuries and bad times he really deserves a championship and would be a worthy winner.
but hopkins has come back from adversity himself,and to do what he is doing on that bike,is showing him to be the class rider of the field.
may the best man win !
one things for sure, us fans are in for a treat.
