BSB » BSB prepares for one-off grid shake-up at Brands Hatch

owlockey: BSB is the pinnacle of domestic superbike racing, it's pretty much why the Brits also dominate WSBK because they have such a good platform but what they have done to the championship in the past few years is ridiculous. The showdown is only done in NASCAR and that's because they have about 60 people in the championship, then they go to Assen which is a circuit I love but what about British tracks? Croft, Mondello, Angelsy. Then when the showdown came last year they had some spoof where they were all dressed up as Cowboys! Thr racing is still good but it is no longer a championship in a true form which is dissapointing.
Mondello, British ?
Yes Mondello Park (which is just outside Dublin) did host the BSB for 2-3 years, cant remember how many.

BSB » Bridewell 'uncomfortable' with Tyco BMW setup

dickiebird: I can fully understand Tommy's frustration. Tyco should make up their minds what they want to do, road racing or BSB short circuit. Trying to do both is compromising both., and they aren't producing the sort of results the team are capable of. Tommy is a winner, so he should start looking around for a more commited partner if they intend carrying on with their current program. Racing today is so specialized that dabbling in two disciplines at the same time simply can't work. Come on Phillip, get it sorted.
I would say Phillip and Hector are 100% behind both teams. These are new bikes, Laverty has never been on a BMW before but Tommy has and he was not much good then either, so yea he should go but, go where he,s been with the top teams and he still complains.

RR » TT 2015: Dunlop: My body's had enough

v46r: No one could beat Hutchinson with the form he is in. The superbike race before dunlop's crash said it all. Anstey was the only rider familiar with he's superbike. Hutchy and Dunlop not so much, allthough Dunlop rode that bike last year. Hutchy was the only one at a disadvantage. Anstey won but Dunlop was never a threat.
Hutchinson has been riding that ZX10 from the end of the year, and this year in BSB, really should read up.

RR » NW200: Showpiece Superbike race cancelled

kmcg: Yet another day pretty much wasted standing in Ballysally roundabout . By 2 o clock 2 laps of racing . Absolute disgrace , terrible organisation . Its about the fans not the officials. The fans left standing around for hours . What about a safety car ? anything except hours of nothing . Don t even get me started about the inane blathering on the PA system , unbelievable . How many times have we not seen the main event in the last say 10 years ? Seems a lot ! Oh and the NW is not NI s best road race , the UGP most definitley deserves that title .
Gotta agree with you there, I think the main problem is the event is run too early in the year to get any good weather. With the red flags, add nearly 3/4hr to an hour before a restart. The organisation for the event is top class, but seem to lose it on race day. If my car was not in the carpark beside the padock I would have been home in Bangor by 3.00. And yes the UGP is the best "Pure Road Race" just ask any of
