Top job John, you put a lot of regulars in WSB to shame there & kept your head to take 2 excellent finishes.

Now lets see you wipe the floor with them in BSB......before going back to the Suzook MotoGP team & the proper big bikes arriving, the 1000's.

Fair play to Hopkins, he really did mix it up the sharp end. Also he REALLY did have to make time on the breaks, every croner you could see him closing in, I was sat at the final corner and he was braking about 10-20 metres later than some.

After top QP time and Superpole at Saturday, I was expecting a little more, probably a podium, but anyway, these results are great by a wild-card, especially compared to HM Plant last year. And at least nobody will say how weak the WSB is, Hopkins was real great, but the regulars are very fast.

I'd like to apologise to BSB and the Crescent Suzuki people as well as Hopper (like they care lol).
After what HM Plant did(nt) do last year at Silverstone i didn't think the spec of the bike would be high enough to compete but the combination of Hopper and a bloody good team behind him has proved me wrong and i'll happily admit that.
Silverstone complete, next week we are at Brands..then Cadwell...can't wait :)
