Glad to see race direction finally do something. They said it was under review and then let said the results would stand. Now the wrist smack.

I don't know. If I am in Alex's shoes, I'd think that I was a few turns from collecting 16 points.
Now, although it was Rea's mistake, the latter still collected 13 points and Alex ... saw his 16 points going in smoke, which is like having -16 points.

If Rea was the victim ... oh boy ... it would be a much bigger drama.

I like how in the post race interview, Rea said he couldn't talk about how the Ducati is faster otherwise he'd be called a crybaby

There’s no eye for an eye in racing. Ya, Rea was penalized only because Lowes went down. But the punishment will never match the loss. And it shouldn’t because of all the uncertainty and shared blame. Rea did have a small hole to shoot, and if he hadn’t his Lowe’s arm, they both prob would have stayed up. But that didn’t happen, so uncertainty.

WSBK hasn’t played favorites all that much. I don’t think the penalty would be any diff if the roles were reversed.

Well, my information was incorrect. Rea did not have to start the race from the back, but the superpole. I won't spoil the second race, too much. There is a bunch of irony in the race, I tell ya' what. I am not sure what Davies is going to do with his season in tatters. It didn't get any better, today.

It was good to see some racing at the front for a little while in Superbike. Bummed that Bautista crashed because he has seemed super human at times this season. Glad he wasn't hurt.

WSS victory was up in the air for most of the race. SSP300 is sure fun.
