Yeah, it was Rapp in front of Jorge there towards the end. May have thought it was Ellison coming up behind him, so good moves to fend off the world champion. And, yes, Steve backing it in around Indy was very nice to watch.

Yates was on a Suzuki powered bike,Rapp was on the Kawi.I dont think Rapp even knew Jorge was behind him and i think Jlo was pissed once he got by because he made a kicking motion towards Steve.
these guys running CRT bikes are doing the best they can with these Bikes,Its almost like running 600cc bikes against Superbikes..Shameful really,MotoGP is supposed to be the premier series.

The AMA racer scrapping with Lorenzo was #15 rider Steve Rapp. Also Daytona 200 winner. Google Steve Rapp Ducati crash 2006 Road America. That's a monster crash which Kocinski caused, and he still got up and finished that race. Dude is made of titanium...lol

glad they finished, but IMO rapp's behaviour when lorenzo was lapping him was INEXCUSABLE.

i'm sorry, but when you're getting lapped you're NO LONGER RACING. pull up off the racing line, roll off the throttle, and let the front guys come thru.

the "regulars" know how to do this, like when edwards got lapped at laguna...he let the front guys come thru...the 0.2 seconds it cost him didnt matter, CUZ HE WAS GETTING LAPPED.

Will someone please explain why Rapp did not pull over to let Lorenzo through. Why there was no blue flag.
Then why did he make a complaint against Ellison who was 20 seconds behind him after Ellisons Gearbox problems then after ten laps Ellison caught up to him and passed him. He was continually faster than Rapp throughout the race. But a complaint was made by Rapp and his team anyone know?

Firstly, good on them for making the cut, racing, and finishing.
Secondly, no blue flags is criminal this CRT season. I don't blame Rapp, he took the mirrors off before the race.
Lastly, nice to see Yates coming out of competitive beer drinking to race again. That had tone fun/memorable!
