Elias and the rest of the lot were lucky that SuperGlue was contesting another championship.If that guy doesn't have a Moto2 ride yet somebody better grab him up quick! Any true fan of the sport has to respect his ride today on an unfamiliar bike, unfamiliar track, and unfamiliar tires with an unfamiliar team. Go Kenan!

Great race!

Sofuoglu definitely showed his class on a 600 there, only losing out thanks to lack of dry set up experience. He'll be a championship contender for sure next year. His performance indicates the quality of the best WSS runners.

Redding 4th from 25th on the grid. Very impressive.

What a race, thought Kenan was going to win it for a while but not to be. Very happy for Bradl, he's a nice lad and good to see him get a win. Ianonne almost did the impossible, i would have liked to have seen him do it. Truly delighted for Scott, 25th to 4th...proper race craft, would have liked to have seen more of the passes. Lastly, 2nd place was a bike built as a one off by a plane making company....amazing amazing amazing.
Great race, good stories throughout, well happy :)

Great race today shame about Iannone this has to be the only time I was wanting him to win. Also great ride by Redding getting faster and faster and loves to get stuck in and dish it out as well and in doing that can only go foward. Not like the overated guy in 125cc Bradley Smith who will get his a.s kick to today and will only go back next year in Moto2 coz can only race the track and not in a group.

Moto2 is a different ball game to WSS... Sofuoglu learns that the hard way today.

Honestly it is a bit premature to say that he can make it in Moto2... he certainly has the raw pace, but certainly he cannot carry everything from WSS to Moto2 (clearly shows when he lost his grip in the middle of the race compared to other racers especially Bradl).

In fact his battle for the third place is the better indicator of his ability at this moment... let's see whether he can do better in Valencia.

Wow what a race,i think the neighbour's must've heard me shouting for Scott Redding in the last few laps but i hadn't a clue who was gonna come where.Well done to Bradl on his first win and Westy rode well on that MZ coming through the pack like he did.Kenan rode well but his tyres must've gone off but still came back at them near the end.

More of the same next year please,that's what you call racing F1 fans.

Wow, Kenan is the man. He would win the race easily if there were no problems with the bike. And he had no knowledge of the track too! Next year he will be right up there with Iannone and co. and I would maybe even bet on him... Moto2 is not so good class after all.
