Well I saw the WSS race on British eurosport even if no one else did.

The race schedule seems to have been disrupted by rain at Portimao then the long delay for the red flag and as the BSB races were being shown as well all the race start times went out of the planned time slots, you can hardly blame Eurosport for that.

Not a great season of WSS. Cluzel really stands out as the only noticeable rider of the field to me.
Sufuoglu did what was expected of him.
Lowes was disappointing, not faster than last year, no more consistent either. Beaten fair and square by Cluzel.
Foret is just too old and inconsistent to be a serious title challenger anymore.
Where was Parkes this season ?

im a Brit and wanted Lowes to win but you have to give Sofuoglu great credit, he is a class act, also
congratulations to Kawasaki for ending a long barren spell and finally winning a championship,

is anyone else out there fed up of WSBK clashing with BSB, there are weekends when no racing is on at all.

Dirty Rider and one who has found his level. He could not perform at any other level so has to stay on WSS. Probably wasn't aired as the WSS races are so BORING this season.

well done to Keenan..he is certainly one of the best Supersport riders possibly in history...

however...he should have been more punished for his ludicrous attack on foret earlier in the season..atleast a 1 race ban in my opinion....dropping 3 places for that was no punishment at all..

Also as much as i love the smaller class..it has not been a vintage year...the races have at best been dull and the racing in the big bikes far superior all round...

For real supersport action the British Championship this year has been white hot and much preferable to see....i would rather watch BSB main races and Supersport than WSS right now...they could do with an influx of fresh talent i fear though cluzel has been a breath of fresh air...
You can't blame eurosport for a red flag in WSB followed by a long delay..that is out of their hands and i personally think their coverage and support of Bike racing is superb and should be commended...

I've read on a news site that Kenan will remain in supersport next season, but Kawasaki will likely offer him test sessions on the superbike whenever possible, with a view to join the superbike ranks in 2014.

Just proves that Sofuoglu is great at WSS and not a lot of cop at anything else, so what. I guarantee that if Crutchlow has "just secured an historic 3rd world title", posters would be ripping his b4lls off.
