Unbelievable! During 15 laps I thought "it is becoming something like MotoGP", but the last laps and mainly the last lap was simply incredible. Most fantastic championship decider I've ever seen. 0,006 seconds!

There was no racing until the 17th lap I think Hopper should have passed Ellison instead of following him around Couldnt figure out what Hoppers strategy was
No wonder he lost the championship He lost it rather than Hill winning it

Incredible race

Brilliant, brave, bold & skilled by all 3 podium placers

Very pleased for Tommy Hill and well deserved

BUT

Mushet's right - in conventional points the winner IS Byrne

That's why motor cycle racing is the most exciting sport in the world.If that didn't get your pulse racing you're already dead. Have to say BSB has been the series of the year bar none. Congratulations to all involved in all classes. Brilliant entertainment.

This is spine-tingling stuff and something that not even the best script writers from hollywood could dream up. The outcome of the championship hung in the balance and raged on until the last few fractions of a second! Congratulations to Tommy Hill after his ups and downs of the past few seasons and commiserations to Hopper for giving it his best shot in such a hotly contested series.John can feel extremely proud for the way he adapted to new tracks, a new environment etc. & still come so close to securing the title at his first attempt. I'm sure that he will have the measure of everyone if he has to do it all over again next year. However, I suspect he will either be in MotoGP or WSBK in 2012. I'm sad that the curtain is slowling coming down on what has been an enthralling racing season. Keep it coming!

Wow!!! British Superbikes the best national series in the world... I love it!

I wanted Hopkins to win but you had two riders going at it, giving it their everything and the championship is decided by 0.006 seconds... what more can you ask for?

They were the class of the field, they both deserved to win it but congratulation to Tommy and a fantastic year from Hopper.
