Can't stand the stupid points system but congrats to Tommy Hill on winning! And to Hopper and the rest in another brilliant BSB race! The last couple of laps were as good as it gets! Absolutely brilliant!

I'm right there with you Ladas! I know people will say stuff like, "Even if he wouldn't have had the mechanical problem, he could have still crashed out"....ETC....... True, anything could have happened but, Hopper would have more than likely finished in a great position going into the last race which would have put him as champ now. Things didn't work out that way and it truly s-ucks for him!

Congratulations to all the riders and also the other classes, any scoring system that ends up with the title decided by .006 of a second on the last lap of the last race of the season certainly keeps the tension going to the end!!

You can disagree with my last sentence, but the first part of my post is mathematical fact. Hopper missed three races and still only lost to Hill by 2 or 3 points. How's that really fair?

Anyway, considering Hopper only raced at Donington before and learnt all these other circuits, that makes him my rider of the season. Him And Graeme Gowland, who made some of the full superbike riders look a bit daft!
