10 Seconds not to bad considering what happened to Alex Lowes last time out.
I would think Samsung Honda had a say in the outcome

Good luck for the Grand finale

Still thing Wee Haggis Easton will do the buisness.

if you are a bit annoyed, Best way to prevent a reoccurance is to stop knocking people off! Or alternatively get back on a superbike where you can just dolly around on your own in around fifteenth place.

The right decision IMO. You cannot go around knocking people off. Felt sorry for O'Halloran after his weekend.

Not bothered who wins the title as both Easton & Seeley are fairly average, Eg: Only any cop on a 600.

Just hope it's a good race with the likes of McConnell up there.

@alol I thought it was a racing incident,I it depends who you are and how far your up peoples asses!!.the end of the day seeley had a bad time on superbike but he is the best super sport rider in the country by a mile.and also makes a nice final round - not.
The reason lowes was disqualified was cause they so far up shakeys ass and afraid of PB taking the hump next yr thus setting a president for for this incident.

An inconsistent decision, a ten second penalty for knocking someone off and continuing yet Lowes was disqualified at Assen.

It really does confirm the Byrne/Lowes decision was nothing more than a political move to keep the championship close at the top of superbikes. Not that this one isn't, I'm not certain of the points structure of Supersports but a 10 second penalty placed Seeley 10th which, if the system is like superbikes, meant 6 points leaving him 19 points adrift of Easton. A disqualification meant he was 24 points adrift so Easton could potter round at Brands and pick up a third and a fourth to win the championship but he now needs at least two third places. Assuming of course Seeley wins both races. My calculations are of course predicated on my guess at the points system.

Stuart Higgs felt it necessary to publically justify the decision over the Byrne/Lowes outcome which merely served to confirm it was, at best, dubious.Higgs even went as far as to maintain the meetings we

There's a difference between sideswiping someone off at 50 mph and rear-ending them at 140 mph. I.E 10 s pen vs disq for Lowes. Looks balanced to me. I'd like Ellison to get the title ( regardless of deserving it or not! ) so no fanboy influence here before anyone suggests otherwise!

To say Seeley and Eason are just fairly average is a bit harsh,Seeley deserved his punishment and will have to accept it, both men are quick on roads and track to call them average is just nonsense, credit where credit is due.
