I agree. Tom's reaction to the wet ruling was classic too. Talk about pissed! Boneheaded move by race direction for sure.

Well yeah. The first boneheaded move was red flagging it, when waved rain flags would have sufficed.
Great lap from Tom! And bad luck for Guilliano....
Gunna be some great racing, Baz could figure! Oh well, here comes another late late night.............:


Bring it on! ( one wet, one dry, please...)
SSP could be epic!

Tough call as I am not clear on the rules. It does seem that if they start a dry session, that should be it.

The British Eurosport team think it was a bad call. But they, of course, would.

Super Stock and Super Sport were both nail biters. I though the Super Sport guys were going to knock each other down about 19 times.

......and it looks like Superbike race two is dry.....with sprinkles

No kidding--ever since I added him to my Fantasy League team, he's been a disaster.

I think to be fair to him, and bearing in mind what happened to him last year, he took it very easy in both races due to the weather - some points is better then throwing the bike down the track and not getting any points at all.
