the last meeting of the year and the end of season party is in full swing.lets hope all the riders have a safe Macau 2011.It is a dangerous circuit,similar to Monaco.probably the most dangerous circuit any where on the planet to race a superbike.It is also very testing on the bikes and tyres with the heat and humidity at Macau. good luck to everybody at Macau.

Free Practice Hutchy - the man must have balls the size of space-hoppers! To have not raced for over a year and gone through the trauma of nearly losing his leg on 3 occasions, to be 3rd in free practice is not nothing short of amazing!
