Sam crashed because he did the same move earlier in the race and expected Kenan to get pushed out wide mid corner.

It looked hard move, but given Sam's clear advantage in corner speed and the way he had been hanging back to embarrass kenan at the end of the race, well, good move for Kenan for catching Sam sleeping.

Sam doesn't respect Kenan, Sam can lose to Kenan, even if Sam is on a superior bike.

Sofuoglu strikes again!

As for this part: "both Lowes and Sofuoglu shrugged the clash off as a racing incident"
Lowes certainly didn't see it that way, as he stated in the post race interview that he thought the move was out of order.

btw, Sam could have easily won that race, he lost it on his own lack of judgement and leaving it down the last lap.

The real question is, will Sam Lowes persist in his theatrics or just start clearing off like the pace of tha tbike suggests.... but then the commentators wouldnt be able to tell the story of a faster Sam on a slower Yamaha.... sigh.

Do everyone a favor and don't repeat what you are told, it might help the people commentating figure their hackneyed pitches need a little rework.

... btw Forza Kenan, you pi**ed a lot of Brits off by putting the Turkish flag on top, congrats, a shame Eugene couldnt have doubled it up and added insult to injury.

So typical of that .... turk. Not the first time and it wont be the last. Hopefully he will move to superbikes and get thrashed again like he has been in everything other than WSS.

It was a racing incident nothing less nothing more. Sam thought Kenan couldn't pass there and gave no consideration whatsoever if there was a rider up the inside or not. That said, it's the passing rider's responsibility to make it as clean as possible. Kenan probably just wanted to sit Sam up but he was simply not expecting it. Had the roles been reversed Kenan would simply have sat the bike up, experience would've played it's part.

Dont make me laugh Shrieker. Seen it all before. Dirty tactics wont work in WSBK besides which he will never be any where near the front to employ them. Thoroughly objectionable little character.
