    They must have found something with those Suzuki's. They seem much more competitive than before.

    Dramatic Superpole as Melandri and Guintoli suffer mechanical failures and Syke's blazing record setting pole lap is negated by the dry session being red flagged.

    Sykes set a time of 203.3. The wet session was never really wet, but the times reflect the condition of the track. Laverty's first WSBK pole.

    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.............:1drink::lol3


    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. :deal
