Im a big fan hopper.
Pole or top 6 qualifying want happen.
That bike needs sorting. Its a shame the whole team is so far off the pace.

Lets hope for a better second half of the season.

Crescent need proper factory support to gain more BHP in their motors and improve the overall package that they're working with. A works motor with all the fancy internals will surely deliver an extra 10-15kph on top end and place them firmly and squarely in the ballpark to compete with the current front runners. Yoshimura are doing a decent job but they are still finding they feet in the heady world of World Superbike. A lack of funds and inexperience will always count against a team such as Crescent who are making the first foray onto the world stage. They should give a better account of themselves next year. Denning has already intimated that they plan to remain in the championship in 2013. Alstare, where are you?

I agree with others that the weak link seems to be the Yoshimura motors, therefore Hopper will not be making headlines at Silverstone - at least not ones relating too the teams brilliant results.

I doubt that Hopkins will break into the top 10 overall. There is NO way Hopkins will take pole on God's green and promised land. Yesterday is yesterday not tomorrow, just sayin.

It a big leap from BSB to WSB with the added disadvantage that the Yoshimura engines and/or the electronics package doesnt cut it.

Neither Hopper or Camier got sh1t suddenly..
