    So who follows the BSB Championship? Who's your money on this season? Can Brookes beat Byrne?

    After how last year ended up and his absolute heroics getting his dad and mate to lift him onto the grid to congratulate Shakey, I'd really like Leon to do it this year. He deserves it.

    Depends on Shakey's early form though, if he looks good again, the sensible money would have to go with him.

    I know Leon is a very talented rider but I can't get it out my head that he bought his way in for some reason.

    Met Shakey up at Knockhill when PBM were testing and a great chat with him. So down to earth and really nice guy.

    Not a chance...last year was his and it went tits up he won’t get that close again,but I do like him he’s a top rider but he ain’t got the killer instinct like Byrne and brookes

    Partly agree it was his last year and unfortunately it went wrong.....................however I believe/hope that this will make him more determined this year. Good luck to the lad but again have to agree Bryne and Brookes are at the top of their game.

    Byrne again for the title.
    Would like to see the Honda boys get some podiums again and push the leaders hard.

    Bradley Ray put in some good performances, could be a contender for a few podiums too.

    The guys are back from Spain yesterday haven't spoken to them yet I don't go to the testing I guess I don't need the practice. The bikes have some new parts suspension has changed so I was not expecting lap records and Michael needs a lot of setup working with him a few times we know this but Donington and the weather and the public track day before the race weekend who knows what state the track will be in, it's always affected by the jet fuel and de-icing fluid coming off planes it's at the end of the runway.

    He owned the track on Monday that's for sure. I stood down at the Melbourne loop for the superbike race, love watching these guys wrestle with the bikes as they accelerate. Ellison high sided just in front of me.

    Yea sorry it was a crap day weather wise my phone packed in on Wed on the way to Donnington and I could not get my data sim topped up on the laptop so I was well out of touch. You should have said to one of the other guys and I would have came back out to see you as long as we weren't on track or about to. We thought it would not go ahead but they got away with it again. I got finished up about 1.30 am packing the hospitality truck and up again at 6 am for the flight home my God the grass car park was a sight a good 4 -5 inches of liquid mud and there was a track day today was that why you were down?

    Tyco BMW a mechanic on Michael Laverty's side this year along with 3 others for that bike easy time hopefully but when there is a crash like Christian's then the real work begins and the cheque book is needed. Two hours got it fixed for the race
    https://video.eurosport.de/british-...n-spektakular-zu-sturz_vid1078390/video.shtml

    You can see the marks on the grass from the other crashes and that was the first day
