The only time I have been dissappointed with Tommy Hill this season was post-race when he complained about Kirkham, particularly after it had already been established that the Swan team had instructed that Laverty should help Hill. Rather hypocritical, I thought. Great result for Ellison and no-one could have prophesised the three on the podium.

Tetley, agree 100%. Was disappointed with Tommy with his moaning. Kirkham is Hopper's team mate, what is he supposed to do, wave you past?

Last race is gonna be good, providing there's no technical problems or crashes... Bring it on!

Dont mind who wins between Hill and Hopper but seeing the result decided by an engine failure is v.dissapointing.
So silly a seasons work can be undone by one race in a 3 round championship..

Ironically 2 points split Hopkins and Tommy but under normal scoring system, Shakey and Tommy start the last race dead level on 378 points each, so ask your self which is the better format ?????

Just watched and re-watched the Hill/Kirkham incident that Hill complained about. Hill should have exitted the bend on the racing line, the outside of the track, but instead he exitted towards the middle of the track trying to block Kirkham and actually steered into Kirkham. So Hills complaints are double-bad because it was his own fault. Also Hill added the complaint that his boot was damaged - but it was his left boot, so how could Kirkham have done that? Tommy may have spoken under pressure, so I hope he later withdraws his complaints.

If Hill had made it onto the rostrum, they should have given the spoilt brat a lollipop to shut him up.
How dare Kirkham race him...what's he supposed to do? He was comfortably quicker than hill and results count for a lot right now with contracts to be won for next year, plus he was doing a good job for his team. Doubt Hill would complain so much if Laverty had took out Hopper.
Rant over
