Should be a crackin year with 35 riders confirmed so far for 2015......biggest surprise is Jenny Tinmouth getting a full works Honda Racing bike for all rounds. I don't mean that in a sexist or derogatory way, because the girl is fast and I think she will surprise a lot of people. A fitting reward for her years as a privateer on Hondas.

Byrne does the double & takes the lead in the championship after Ellison has a DNF in race 1 & a 7th in race 2.
Laverty gets his best result of the year so far with a 4th in race 2.

Byrne does the double again. Laverty demoted to 4th in Race 1 after receiving a 1 second penalty for undertaking Brookes at the hairpin under a yellow flag.

Didn't look like an overtake under yellow to me. The TV footage didn't show any yellows & the incident appeared to happen behind them; however, race direction is better informed than I am!

Yellow flag visible from onboard cameras of O'Halloran & Brookes 2015 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship in association with Pirelli

Regardless of his demotion it was still another good weekend for Laverty, great to see him getting back on the pace

Clearer from that angle, which is what the riders saw. The angle the TV cameras showed it from was looking straight at the waved yellow (I assume it was waved, although in that video there's not much movement to be seen!) at the start of the gravel trap &, to be honest, I've seen flags displayed better! Maybe there's an argument for bikes in the UK following what we now do for cars & using single/double waved yellows rather than stationary/waved?

Yes! Good to see Kiyo getting a decent result in the second race; it's sad to see him struggling - it's almost as though everybody but him has confidence in him.

The plural of "anecdote" is not "data".

He wouldn't be the first rider to lose confidence and that racing edge after a bad accident. I am reminded of Fast Freddie Spencer.

Two big offs for PBM in Race 1

Another double for Brookes A 4th & a 2nd for Byrne, Brookes now takes the championship lead by 12 points.

Bad luck for Ellison (broken wrist) & Hopkins (a mechanical in Race 1 & a crash in Race 2)

Brookes does the double, that's now a triple double
Hickman takes two second places, McConnell & Bridewell take third. Byrne takes a sixth & a fourth.

Brookes now leads the championship by 39 points & has a 4 point advantage in the podium credits from Byrne.
