Some good racing today. Good to see Lowry win for Padgetts earlier. Brookes rode brilliantly in 2nd race to take win.

Its gonna be a good season in BSB this year with no gizmos :)

The thing that stood out for me today though was after a poor Qualifying session yesterday was Stuart Easton after last years horror smash where he could have possibly never ridden again to be up there in both races and challenging for the win in the 2nd is fantastic to see.

Tw*t - the person stood behind Brookes while Whitham was talking to him during his grid walk for race two. This guy kept following Whitham and the camera trying to get his ugly mug on the tv - and he failed miserably to get whatever he had written on his piece of paper to be seen by the camera.

Good rides from Brookes, he came from behind to take podium in the first race (I believed Laverty finished 3rd, so I was very surprised when saw Brookes is giving interview). He surely gone well in the second too, unfortunately I could only see the first one. Nice job by Lowry and the Padgetts team too.
The unluckiest guy of the day was Michael Rutter, two technical problems from podium positions. I think he is one of the surprises of the season, he is doing very impressive so far.

I was lucky enough to be at Cobb and saw the overtake by Brookes it was awesome, the whole second race was a joy to watch as Brookes charged like a scolded cat to catch the front four who initially took off. Shame about Rutter both races bike failed and sounded awful. Haga in the paddock looked totally uneasy with signing items and he never really got going, Poor Tommy Hill tyres obviously went off but what an second race bodes well for a really great championship and congratulations to Padgett's and Ian Lowry great first win and they will be a really surprise package, cant wait for Oulton Park!!!

Whats the point of grid passes for teams when it looks as though the local asylum has been released on the grid, gurning at the cameras and holding mucky bits of paper up, then calling some unfortunate to say they are calling them because they are on telly! weird!

Great racing today. well done Brookes Lowrey for wins and Hil for 2 strong seconds

Dont get why people disagree with things like good second places for hill and for saying well done for pole.
There isnt a -1 in qualifying 1 is top.
Easton was class today not 100% yet but fast as...

Think They should make a new race called a troll race for all the people that think they know everything and knock riders at every chance and true fans can throw things at them as they go round the track. I know i would back it!!!!
