Race 1

1st - BROOKES
2nd - LOWES
3rd - BYRNE

Ding-dong battle for P2 between Lowes and Byrne on a wet track. Lowes took command w/2 laps to go and made up a lot of ground on Brookes, but couldn't get close enough to challenge for the win. Lowes now leads the title standings.

Byrne came from P22 on wet track to overtake Lowes. Lowes came back after a few laps and the pair then had a battle for P2 'til the last lap when Byrne ran wide at Druids and Lowes held on for the championship. Josh Brookes dominated the weekend with three wins.

Once again the series goes down to the last lap of the season.
It must stress all those involved but as a spectator I can't ask for more than that!

Looks like Brookes has found some form again!

The last two races were incredible. BSB is the best racing there is.

You'd think the technical rules would be perfect for wsb. Lack of traction control hasn't caused any issues at all.

As a spectacle I think BSB is as good if not better than any race series out there.
I don't know how much this is down to the rule changes from the other year,& the showdown over the last few rounds but it certainly works.Look how it went right down to the wire AGAIN this season.

Funny how that happens at the END of the year, and when he's more or less, out of contention for the championship.

I think Josh would be the first to accept that the outcomes would have been different,certainly the gap would have been closer had Shakey & Alex been riding to win the race instead of the championship.
He signed of for the season on a high note after a couple of poor weekends
