There should be speed limits introduced or at least the bikes need to have horns to beep slower riders out of the way. These are the days of Health and Safety don't forget!

On the funny side, Danny looks like playing his prey (Karel and Dovi) lapped them and then let them through again lol and one time Dovi is like "Oh the race leader, I should let him pass" hilarious!
Dani could have lapped more than half riders if he insist

no fault of ellison at all.the blame lies squarely at the idiot ezpeletas door.this is why you dont put vehicles on track that have lap times that are 3 secs and more slower than the prototypes.
very lucky this didnt happen earlier in the season or it could have wrecked the championship if jorges landing had been a bit different.
once carmelo has finished sumbing down the technology it wont be a problem though,they will all be riding glorified street bikes.
the jonny come lately type fans will be happy,but real racing fans (not those that all for one rider and slate anyone else)will be watching something else.
getting more like the manufactured rubbish that is F1 every year.

It just the blue flag problem, CRT's should be wave out of the line long back cos track surface is wet and it's very danger to make front runners move out of dry line to make a pass on slick tyre. I personal think JLo just have no choice but have to keep throttle to work the tyre resulted in a bit offline onto the wet surface then the nasty high-side

Ellison just proved what a pretentious ass he is. 5 riders were caught and the other 4 got out of the way, why didn't he? What makes him think he is allowed to ignore the blue flags?

Blue Flag:
this flag indicates to a rider that he is about to be overtaken and he must allow the rider(s) following him to pass.
