During free practice yesrerday Norn Iron man Glenn Irwin crashed hard at Goddard's and was stretchered off to hospital with a suspected broken neck. But luckily for him the docs only found that he had broken his back in another crash last year.
Meanwhile, news appeared that he's declared fit to race

It was BSB Race 1 too, I was half asleep but I'm sure that is what they showed, I recorded it and can upload it if you missed it.

Donington is right in the firing line for a snow storm tomorrow, so I think they moved one of the BSB races to get it in the books just in case.

Yes it might be indeed. I was quite surprised when I got home from clean up at fire station to find race 1 starting and half of the supports been run as well.
But cracker of races. :thumbsup:

I'll need to rewatch the recording, I do remember them showing all the crashes from the Cramer curves in the morning though.

Some real good racing yesterday, especially when it was still wet.
Man of the weekend would be Brad Ray, for sure, riding to victory in both Superbike races.

Just as a footnote in regards to not really readable startnumbers, especially these involving a 1 or 7, there was a startnumber 76 in the final Junior Supersport race which I had down as 16 for most of the race. I bring this up again because we had a similar discussion on a startnumber in a thread regarding a fatal Manx GP crash a couple weeks ago. Perhaps someone could post a bit of footage from said race to show it.

Junior Supersport race at Brands just over. Lovely class to watch and really a cool move by race winner Eunan McGlinchey on the inside of Clearways of the final lap

What happened in the sidecars? They mentioned about the sidecars starting and to switch over to Eurosport player to watch it, then said there was a red flag, now they've said there's been about an hours delay so they're running fill in VT until the moto3 race on ES2.

Don't think the sidecars were supposed to be shown on ES2 today.

I've no idea as I'm switching in and out due to visitors here. Seems a bit funny though because usually they run the sidecars dead last

According to a mate an outfit sprayed oil all over the circuit.
