Oulton BSB: Hill claims pole

Tommy Hill left it until the final seconds to claim his second pole position of the season on the Worx Suzuki today (Sunday) at Oulton Park in qualifying for tomorrow’s BSB third round.  Hill’s sensational 1:35.21 lap meant he edged out Swan Honda’s Stuart Easton by just 0.394s. Hill said: “It’s been a tough weekend but the Worx Crescent Suzuki...

Wow you must be some guy? Able to read others blood pressure via the internet . Your point about R6 LOL Crutchlow ? LOL, yet another overrated big head! MY OPINION! So............ how is it your comments 'hold substance'? Just watched a great ride by Easton . Now that is one hell of a rider, cool calm and not big headed at all. Superb ride. Injury or not, [he isnt the only one] still looks a tit when he leg trails LOL

Well well another Tommy Hill fluke, should he carry on like this he might even fluke the championship, and all of that on the best bike in the championship, I wish I had that sort of luck

Re 675cc

Mate have you not seen the form here?  If you dont worship Tommy Hill you will be jumped on, very sensitive subject, I think they comment on here as do some of his family, pathetic isnt it?  They avoided the question when I asked on another thread, Colvill answered but he was alone.

I agree with you, until this year he has been very ordinary, must have one of the worst records to get a top seat, but must have brilliant sponsorship, but sponsorship not rich enough to stay on the World scene.  That is my opinion too, but not what I have made up in my head, the record and years on a superbike state this.

However I thought he did rise an excellent race on Sunday. Valentine is good at reminding riders that they are employed to work, Hill has his head down and is grafting, it could be the making of him in this team. Now I am pleased he has that seat, or the championship lead could be even greater, imagine if Easton or Kiyo were on that bike. 

We are back to where we were last year.  An outstanding bike - brilliant for Suzuki and well overdue, combined with the best funded remaining team leading the championship, but at least this year in my opinion they do not have the best rider.

The other teams are just fighting over the scraps, none of them look as if they will emerge as a strong championship contender.  I cant see anyone challenging Tommy Hill for the championship, Stuart will get wins but that bike good as it is, is not as good as the Suzuki or as good as the HM Plant Hondas when they set their bikes up properly.

Stuart Easton is the class of the field but at least (for us) he isnt in the biggest budget team.

I cant believe HM Plant's performance, really poor, the riders both look good, Kiyo looks really strong, but their bikes just arent set up properly at every other race.  I wonder if they are thinking more of the new (possible) regs for next year and not developing or throwing more money at this?

If Kagayama is ok after yesterday it will be just a matter of time before he steals points of some of the other contenders and puts Hill further out of reach of the other teams.

The races are good enough to watch, but not from a championship point of view, the evo regs are definately needed, at the moment it is like having two World Superbike teams in a paddock of domestic superbike teams, it doesnt look as if there is any way to elevate the rest of the teams up to their standard so it must go the other way and take the top teams down.

It shows in Superstock that if a top rider is placed on an 'ordinary' bike he can make the difference, so all the top teams need do is emply the very best riders and they still should be at the front of the grid and on the podium.

This would also stop this business of the likes of Andrews and Easton being overlooked for the best teams, the best teams would overlook them at their own peril and any up and coming rider would also have to be considered as the second rider or he could embarrass a top team.

I think the new rules are certain to come in next year, it is far too early to have one rider looking as if they already have it in the bag.  The problem with those rules is the transition period but it cant be any worse than this year or last, but may mean two further years of not perfect racing.

Look at WSBK where a lot of teams are on similar budgets, totally different.

cheers 675

The races are still good to watch, but the championship title is not going to be a battle at all, lower down it will be, it is lucky they brought in the new point system as it is the only hope for any excitement at the end, plus the spectators cant work it out, so they keep watching.  No taking away though Tommy Hill rode well especially in the second race, they were tough conditions for everyone.

Thanks for the insults ! Just because you are in Love with Tommy Hill and can't stand what YOU perceive negative comments about him, it does not give you a right to be obnoxious and foul mouthed! As it happens mate, I have been involved in Grand Prix racing as part of a very successful 250cc set up. [and 350cc come to think of it] so I do have a good knowledge about Motorcycle racing. I do not profess to be an authority on the subject, but I do have an opinion and will continue to air it. Windy12 made valid points, I agree with him, Fact is IN MY OPINION, Tommy Hill is nothing more than an average rider, not a superstar, no good history apart from R6 cup. I think the likes of Jessop, Andrews or many more would be doing the same job on that rocket ship Suzuki!
