I think we can scrap any idea of trying to record this one!
If they can cram practice qualifying and race all into one day why can't hey run normal races over 2 legs like world superbikes.Its going to be a long long day to get all 3 classes done in a day.

urgh - I had BBC set to record this one but they cant even manage to squeeze in the podium presentations half the time - so they sure as hell arent going to manage to extend and cram in 15 mins of practice, a juice bar , some qualifying , a top up of oil and the race

I know its the weather only but its just more nonsense
after the Philip island race

"sighs"...

Can't help the weather...Obviously depends on track availability but if it's bad weather tomorrow I agree with others that I cannot understand why they don't move race to Monday like they did at Qatar a few years ago (assuming weather is better and they can get the medical helicopter). Cramming everything into Sunday is a big mistake and TV schedules would have to change anyway. Teams wil not have time to repair or tweak settings on bikes properly and if any sessions are red flagged the whole schedule will be screwed anyway and races might not be fit in. Would make a further f**** of the series after last weekend.

Agree the BBC coverage has been awful this year, have been so frustrated at how many post-race interviews and celebrations have been cut. Did not even get to watch all the bikes crossing the line on my recording of last week's Phillip Island race even though the race was much shorter!
