Why do they race in Turkey? It is hardly a big motorcycling country.

I counted the number of fans in the crowd in the two races. In the first race there were 86 spectators and only 79 in the second so what is the point.

Laverty was brilliant today, both his rides were very much reminiscent of his supersport performances. He's only 26 points away from the top, repeating today's wins will be difficult no matter, but there are 6 races to go and he might very well do it.

Great weekend by Eugene, until Sunday it didn't seem he will be so commanding. But it wasn't good to see a grid being so slim. Without the wild-cards it would have been only 13 riders.

Maybe only 86 and 79 spectators in race one and two, but how many thousands in the Supersport race? This round is likely the only place where the Supersport had more attention than Superbike.
