Hill wins only Oulton race

Then came the Motorpoint Yamaha duo of Loris Baz and James Westmoreland with Jon Kirkham ninth just ahead of the winner of the Mirror.co.uk BSB-EVO class Scott Smart on the Moto Rapido Ducati.

The rain intensified as the afternoon continued and, after several inspections of the circuit, race officials decided on safety grounds that no further racing was possible.

The second Superbike race has been rescheduled to be held at Cadwell Park over the August Bank Holiday weekend, with a decision still to be made on the re-arranged dates of the Fuchs-Silkolene British Supersport Championship and Metzeler National Superstock 600 Championship races.

Hopper was out front, not winning easily as Tommy wasn't far behind him and others were in the game too. As for Hopper winning in the dry...it was wet so thats more coulda shoulda woulda. Most of the front runners were avoiding the patch where Hopper went down and yet he didn't so he's only got himself to blame for that one. Shame there wasn't both races but it means i get a triple for Brands and then another for Cadwell! Woohoo. And don't get me wrong, i like Hopper but let's not turn him into some God who has higher powers than the other racers. He is just as capable of making errors (as he did) as the rest of the field are
