Anybody hoping to get to any of the races this season? Call me foolish, but I've already booked tickets for Oulton at the end of May and am crossing my fingers & toes that spectators will be allowed in. And just for the record, I'm gonna be following Peter Hickman this season on the BMW with the new FHO Racing Team. Bit of an outsider, but the new team has got me excited!!

Nothing wrong with a bit of optimism! Hope you get in, will be a mega day!!

Hickman, fast and has experience. Wouldn't be a bad idea to bet on experience this year. Brookes, Bridewell, Iddon, O'Halloran, Buchan

The younger guys, Irwin, Mackenzie, Stacey, Ryde and Ray

But outside bet. Rory Skinner. Too young/early maybe, but he's got skills, experience (relatively) of the circuits and of winning.

Be mad to bet against Brookes.....but I'll go Skinner Thumbs Up

Possible I'll go to one of the Oulton races most likely the one near the backend of the season.

Great racing there and some decent vantage spots.

I am hoping for Brands Hatch later in the year. Fingers crossed it happens.

Well they pushed the date back a month, but who cares??? My Son and me going from Fri to Sun. Finally a bit of racing to go and actually watch! Counting the days is an understatement!!

Race 2 was good 'un.

Battle of the nice guys...Spoiler the nice guy won.

Brad Ray is wicked to watch, does almost everything opposite to what usually make you faster and still cuts through the pack to get a good finish.

Decent mix of manufacturers throughout although BMW do have the largest share.

Hicky...My Rider of Race 2.

Didn't make Oulton

Just caught up with the last couple of rounds and been watching the first race from Donnington. Shocked

Rule of thumb is 10% slower in the wet....they were over 20% slower.
A crashfest.

I don't like this showdown business.

Taylor McK's quit, apparently. That's a shame because he was a good lad, I thought. Intelligent, seemingly always good-humoured, and easily capable of turning in fast laps everywhere. Not sure what's been going on backstage though.

You aren't confusing Taylor with Tarran are you

Taylor has never made it in Superbikes, he had one good season in Superstock (which he won), after years of middle table Supersport seasons, then failed to delivery in the next 2 years of Superbikes, then dropped back into Superstock this year

Perhaps he's realised he isn't quite as talented as his younger brother

I was just mentioning it at random tbh. As for that last comment, it's a bit pointed but I suppose that doesn't mean it's not true. Btw, some of Tarran's crashes have been, erm, quite crashy recently. It was weird - he seemed to have a broken wrist the other week and was crashing again the next. Mad lad. Maybe Taylor just wants to not do that. Wink

He certainly does seem to made of rubber that kid though, he's had a few pretty nasty crashes over the last few years, but somehow seems to bounce back stronger than before

Didn't he even lose his bike in the trees a couple of years back when it bounced over the barrier, was at Brands Hatch i think

Oh yeah, here we go

I do hope he finishes this season off well and takes the title, i do like him, and like his brother, always has a smile on his face and rarley has a bad word to say against his fellow riders, unlike a few other in the paddock
