Fantastic days racing, as usual for Cadwell, especially the 'nobody wants to win' Superbike race 2.

Missed out on race 2 but race 1 was ace already as well as the sidecars afterwards. Watched both with mates in Jaks at Douglas prom. 😀

The Assen races were pretty good bar the Farmer penalty which was a real bad joke.

Ever get the feeling it's going to be one of those weekends?

Two big crashes already at Brands and they haven't even done a racing lap yet...

Like to see Leon Haslam take the spoils.... he has been bridesmaid often enough for it to be his turn this year.

Haslam is not doing it the easy way, with Byrne taking the race 1 win and cutting Haslam's ponts lead down to 21 with two races to go.

Yup, but he still only has to finish tomorrow reasonably well to be champ, at least he wasn't as bad as the Supersport guy (Farmer?) who crashed while leading lol

Yeah, Keith Farmer. Still a 23 point lead before final race. I just hope Gearlink doesn't start playing completely dirty following Farmers Assen penalty

Race 3:
Oh shit what a massive crash for Leon in race 3, now all Shakey has to do is finish in the points to win, such a shame, was hoping Leon would win, reporting it as brake failure for Leon, seemed to look like that, Hawthorne's claims another scalp.

Results:
So I guess that means the nurses will be entertained tonight at Sidcup with two riders on the ward now, Leon seems fairly sure his left ankle is broken, it looked it. Shakey did enough to take the title, I'll upload the video later, what a nasty shunt.

Edit: here it is:

Congrats to Shaky but have to feel sorry for Haslam who ended up third in the title fight having led into the final day. Wish him a speedy and full recovery

I`m still expecting an explanation of Stuart Higgs how the Andrew Irwin incident in the Supersport race went as a 'race incident' following his explanation of the Farmer penalty at Assen. I`d really love (laugh even) to hear it

With all that crap that went on lately, I have my doubts that Shakey got it fair and square. Leons incident and the whole weekend looked liked he wasn't deemed to be champ for promotional purposes
