What an interesting / exciting day of testing.

I love seeing these guys at a new track, seeing them improve literally lap after lap. When Sykes went 0.5sec faster than anyone else, I thought, 'wow, that's fast, I don't think they'll catch that...' THEN, lo and behold, Carlos and Haslam did go faster again. The top 15 were all in with a competitive times almost all day. I think we're going to see a cracker of a weekend!


PS. Macfadden is improving steadily as well and really does adjust to bikes so quick. People complain about the Ducati being down on top end (when it was still hitting 300 with Checa and Giugliano). David's bike never got above 290 that I saw.

wrt Hopper, not my personal fav, but, if you look at his races last year in BSB, it proves he still has it. ESp season closer at Brands.

This years suzuki is just not cutting the mustard. Crescent & Yosh both know how to build a bike, it's just not working.

Give Hopper and Camier a competitive bike and the pair will be bashing panels and scrapping hard to get podiums

@ Arron
lot of that's true... i think the biggest problem is that his team is devided two competing company's one makes the motor n the other does the rest..
each afraid of sharing proprietary information. they need unity, john can still ride fast but until this is fixed or he gets full factory support.

Come on Leon! I wanna see the BMW boys do well this weekend. Hopefully without one of them (no names mentioned) punting someone else off in the process.

Haslam looks fast around here. Come on Leon!

Hopper is a gifted rider.

Maybe not an alien but if you look at his results in motogp compared to all of his team mates he doesn't seem quite so shabby.

He put in some awesome rides in BSB too.

The circuit sounds quite cool, some technical stuff then a horsepower test up the straight.

Looking forward to the race.
