Pathetic thing to do that. I hope whomever it was that grassed up Tommy's crew for next to nothing feels proud of themselves.
Imagine winning the title by just a few points and knowing it was only because someone on your team, or you yourself, were so insecure you had to tattle tale on a rival.
Shoddy officiating too. As Tommy's crew cheif stated. There should've been a warning to tell them to get the tyre warmers off.
The title should be decided ON THE TRACK, not by back stabbing and playing politics.

On BSB website you can see it had somthing to do with tyco team. ( Not say ing it was intentional) in gallery you can see what happened. About the Grassing up for somthing that i cant see would have helped him in any way as bike was in garage. Love to see who it was but in the times we live in people can hide behind smokscreens/laptops and say what ever kak they want without ever being face to face. SAD REALLY

I think it was a GB moto Mechanic that was involved with Tommy's incident.
I would of had my money on it being a Tyco mechanic or team member,not because Josh wanting Tommy out of the race but the sheer number of Tyco personnel on the grid.
I was led to believe that each team was allocated 3 grid passes per rider for team personnel to assist on the grid prior to the race.
If only the key personnel went on the grid prior to the race it would not be as crowded and therefore a safer place for all concerned,riders and mechanics.

If the Swan Yamaha team are not aware of the basic rules of BSB then it makes you wonder what sort of outfit they are running. The rules are there for a reason. Why should one team be allowed to cheat their way to pole ? The tyre warmer rule and working on the bike rules are quite simple so surely a top team like Swan cant really complain when they get caught flouting them.

An apology would have been nice even if it was an accident.
I understand it was the Rapid Solicitor Kawasaki guys who brought the infringement to the attention of the organisers. Guess I can't blame them, they're giving Shakey every chance.

Hill would do well to move on the a world series after this. BSB is pants . even the TV highlights cant make it interesting. I just FF on the PVR even though its only about 10mins or so per race.
Amaturish organisation and crap tracks where injury is the norm.

what is of more interest is how fragile the bikes are. Being as its mostly a road bike its a bit of a pi$$ take by yam and the rest that your bike can topple over and get some serious damage. The big four and the others really need to start again as they have gone up a dead end and all the old born agains have spent their money now. There is no new generation that can afford 10000 quid for a sunday 5mile blast/2hr polish purchase.
