Rea looked up for it (if not the Honda) and how much did Giugliano like it there! Laverty right there too with Melandri and others looking strong also. Shaping up into potentially a great title race.
Wtf happened to Rea in the second race? It looked like he is taking crazy swipes at setup changes hoping to catch lightning in a bottle, because he knows the Honda can't compete.

He lost a traction control sensor, but the bike wouldn't let him turn it off and ride without it.

Interesting. Thanks. Can you imagine trying to figure that out on the fly?! Damn.

Called in for race day on the way to Mooojello. Sykes (grinner), was unbelievably smooth. Doing it sooooo easy. The rest have got a lot to worry about...



I'd been to Donnington before for historic racing, seen it a million times on TV,but wasn't aware of just how fearsome a corner the old hairpin is for the fast guys! Scary!
