Understand the pressures on the organisers to deliver a race but that was fkn disgusting.

No WAY should that race have been allowed to continue, putting the riders at such extreme hazard.


How many riders have to signal before they listen?
(Trick question - they Won't listen).

Brilliant win Tom,hope there's more to come,felt sorry for Nori and thought he'd be on the top step after a long time but them conditions were nuts.Great for Guintoli and Smrz too,makes a change from the same old boring names on the podium.How many riders have to fall or put their hands up before some dopey kunt in race direction decides enough is enough?

I thought it was rather refreshing to see a proper wet race being almost completed for a change. So many times these days i see wet races being stop-started or being abandoned all togehter.

Well done to all the riders who finshed and commiserations to those that didn't.

I understand that for organizers is important to finish the race, but that race was just a big joke. They saw many riders crashing: Haga, Camier and especially Rea who could renew his injury, even he have a low side, the crash was really dangerous. We saw Eugene and Marco trying to stop the race, but you know riders are only a part of this ****in bullshit, the dont't signify nothing today.

Should of been stopped about 3 laps before. conditions crossed a line, it went from being heavy rain but ok to race as for first half an hour people werent really crashing so grip was there, just bad visibility. No reason to stop race due to heavy rain.

But Then it went over that line and bikes were going off left right and centre. Right at that point it should of been stopped. As soon as you get corners that are full rivers its time to stop.

not first time this track has made a mess of a race in f1 or sbk and it wont be the last.

Great to see a kawasaki win tho!
