    Very kind of you Vic, and very tempting.........I was looking at going but annoyingly we've got a family event that we're committed to that I can't escape from, try as I might, so I'm stuffed I'm afraid.

    ....and to all you other argumentative buggers on here.....this is how us Brits sort out our differences, like proper gentlemen!

    This was an incredibly complex series of events taking place in front of us. Race Direction didn't exactly cover themselves in glory, but the rulebook should have removed this ambiguity by following the guidelines of other FIM series. Kawasaki were right to protest. The correct decision was made on the basis of the regulations in place but I can’t help but feel that the right decision wasn’t made.
    The same statements can be made for Tom Sykes going down in someone else's oil. Right call as per the rulebook, but wrong call morally.
