The Rutter incident was like many other that we see - he put a bit of a late pass in, which normally isnt a problem, so often these are called 'racing incidents'

But at Cadwell the track is so narrow and winding, and once Rutter was lifted up he had no option but to take to the grass (because it is narrow), which then led back to the track again once he had fell(because it is winding)

Silverstone is completely different, huge wide track and loads of run-off, and big turns.

I dont understand why Brookes felt he had to go so easy?

It's exactly the same argument as with the Bridewell/John Laverty incident last year at Cadwell. It wasnt so much the nature of the pass itself, it was more to do with the track and the relative dangers. If the rider gets away with the pass, no one says anything, but if it goes wrong.......
