pcxmac - You're kidding right? You obviously didn't watch Brno race 2, with Sykes up the front battling with Melandri the whole race. The Kwaka is getting better and will win wet or dry in coming races.

Why all this lets knock Tom Sykes?? there are two other British riders on bikes that are capable of winning ie: BMW & Aprilia but I don't see anyone knocking Haslam or Laverty, Tom is 3rd in the championship, give the guy a break, he has done a good job with Kawasaki, Lets not forget the BMW & Aprilia are winning races but not with a Brit on board.

Believe all the riders deserved a medal for competing in pretty awful conditions.
As a MotoGP fan this was my first visit to a WSBK event and enjoyed the racing but where were the fans?
Was gobsmacked at the poor attendance, lack of concessions, no big TV screens. There were more support staff than spectators on Saturday for Superpole.
The whole thing was more like a club meet than a Premium WSBK event.
I know the Olympics were on but fans are fans. Is it always like this??

Cooperman: WSBK races are visited by let's say 1/3 to 1/2 amount of spectators in comparison with MotoGP. If there was an especially bad attendance at Silverstone, it probably was because of weather and maybe also Olympic games. AFAIK in the heydays the WSBK races at Brands Hatch were crowded more than the British MotoGP events.

Note your comments Jimmy. Not a fan of Silverstone, always believed that circuits such as Brands & Donnington were/are much better suited for bikes, better for spectators too.
WSBK organisors should consider whether Silverstone is the right venue.

On the subject of Silverstone . This was my first time at the venue and I was quite impressed. I would agree that there did not seem to be many there but I guess the rain kept the fair weather crowd away. I must admit I prefer BSB as not to keen on paying to get in the paddock etc on top of paying for entry.
