Unbelievable, one of the greatest races ive ever seen

Truly epic.

Mortally gutted for Hopper but Tommy caught him fair and won it at the very death.

6 thousandths of a second.....dont get closer than that.

Both men can hold their head up high and stand proud

Hopper for turning around his career and Tommy from coming back from so much adversity to be a very worthy champion.

Well done both of them.

BSB = Best National Series despite the dumb point system!

Unbelievable final lap - racing at it's very best. Congratulations to Hill and commiserations to Hopkins, either of whom would have been worthy championship winners. The Suzuki seemed to have better corner exits speed onto the start finish straight so if Hopkins hadn't run a little wide, Hill would have lost out at the finish. If Suzuki continue their MotoGP commitment next year, (which is a big if at the moment), at least Hopkins should have some chance of getting back into MotoGP as a consolation prize.

That last lap was right up there with Baylis and Edwards at Imola 2002...

Congrats to Tommy Hill. Big gutted for Hopper as that would have been a fairytale comeback, but wow, talk about a nail-biting finish!

BSB, what a series!

Did you notice how everyone was pretending to be me?..Haha

Fantastic race, great series..Well done to all the riders..especially Hopper, Byrne, Laverty and Brookes, who between them justify the decision to go to the new format..MSVR too for taking a look outside the box. Well worth the fans money..
