Brookes, Kiyonari share Sunday wins

Kiyonari duly completed his fourth win of the season, and his sixth at the circuit, finishing half a second clear of Hill who had finally found a way ahead of Michael Laverty with three laps remaining.

For Hill second best was good enough, putting him back on top in the title stakes and he reflected: “We've re-grouped, gelled back and come out fighting. Now we are back to where we need to be, and where we should be.

“The team have worked hard, we've had out ups and downs and problems along the way but these three podiums show were are back.The final race here was tough, but halfway through I clawed them in, and felt comfortable,” he added.

Steve Brogan, riding Jentin BMW won all three Mirror.co.uk BSB-EVO class races and that put the Liverpudlian back ahead in the title chase 246-241 over Hudson Kennaugh who having switched to riding Splitlath Aprilia took a fifth and two third places.

Neither the Worx team nor the Alstare team are getting any factory support atm. I asked today when at the Gixxer track day and this was confirmed. Didn't ask the Relentless boys but can't imagine it would be any different. What amazes me is that it's the 25th anniversary of the Gixxer this year and you would honestly think that Suzuki would want to mark that occasion and given their stellar start in both series you think they'd be chucking everything at this. Their GP bike is pretty crappy atm so why keep chucking money at it? I'm amazed they aren't thinking along the same lines, just seem to be throwing away the opportunity of some good marketing for their bikes! :?
