Re: BSB Thruxton Round 1

I would watch the GT racing, but, no Alfa's involved, so, I'd rather watch my other love Bike Racing

Re: BSB Thruxton Round 1

Those kinds of cars do not interest me. I know I'll never afford one, even if they are so very nice to look at, an Alfa to me is as beautiful as a Ferrari and they where originally developed by the same man.

Anyway, I'd chose an R1 over and Ferrari any day...

Or, I'd accept the Ferrari, sell it then buy 3 R1's, ha ha

That was a bit of a big crash in the Super Sports

Excellent racing in BSB & BSS as usual. Great to see Shakey & Rutter back to top form

Re: BSB Thruxton Round 1

Yeah, I seen accident in real time and thought 'ouch.'

Then, watching it in slow-motion was even worse. He looked like he had his clock truly cleaned. Glad he is Ok

Re: BSB Thruxton Round 1

The Super Sport crash guy ended up with a broken elbow. Was still not as bad looking as the crash in the second Super Bike race
