Brands Hatch BSB: Tommy Hill takes race two win

Swan Yamaha rider Tommy Hill has taken victory in the second race of the 2011 championship at Brands Hatch today to go to the top of the championship standings. It looked as though race one winner Shane Byrne would take victory again, leading from the start, but Hill stayed with the Honda rider and made his move at Druids to relegate Byrne...

Good start...

Happy that Hill was able to put together a great race... Here's hoping he can keep it up all season long, and that the other R1 rider, Laverty, can join him along the way... Should be great, Go Team Blue...(yellow in this case)

Interesting

Hill is determined and deserves the championship after last year. I expected the Hopper to be further up as IMO he will win races this year and challenge for the title. Apparantly Jenny's bike is not ready yet. It is a competitive field with I think any one of eight riders who could be champion.

Talent

The uk have some great talent at this level, imagine if the politcs and money at MOTO GP level allowed some of these top riders to filter to the top level. Why cant BP sponsor a couple it is a British company after all.

Guy Martin had to leave to take his fairy cakes out of the oven on the boat cant have them burnt can he!!

Be proud be british

Shakeys pass..

I was there, and shakeys pass going into paddock hill was amazing, if a bit desperate, he was a few lengths behind tommy and still lunged in and was lucky not to end up in the gravel, was a great show, hopper was unlucky with race 1 ending up in the gravel at druids, once he gets settled into the bike and series i expect a few wins out of him, looks like it will be a tight championship

What a start to 2011 season.

Superb weather, Brands looking good and the racing lived up and exceeded the pre season hype.If the rest of the races match this opener, we are in for a mega season.

Sour note to finish. The parking at Brands. Only one exit for bikes and cars, we got to the car park 45mins after the end of the last race. No stewards in the main car park and one on the exit. An hour to get out!. Come on Jonathon,its a disgrace to a major sporting venue

Plenty of riders past and present have gone from BSB/BSS into MotoGP.. Chris Walker, James Toseland, Chris Burns, Leon Haslam, Shakey Byrne.. to name but a few off the top of my head.. and let's not forget to mention our current MotoGP rider Cal Crutchlow.. former British Supersport winner!!

Not that any of them have had a memorably succesful time there but the MotoGP tentacles do spread into all bike racing series' on their quest for talent.

You been in a cave bud??  ha ha   ;)

Where are the Tommy Knockers this year?

Where are all the nuggets who hadn't got a good word for Tommy Hill for most of last year when he was winning week in week out? The ones who then had the temerity to say "told you so" when the wheels sadly came off his waggon at that fateful Oulton round.

Tommy had never been in a position of winning a major championship before (the Virgin thing is a ticket to great opportunity - but can hardly compare to BSB) and yes the pressure finally got to him. He did all season with no team mate though as Kagayama was almost always injured and must have been a major drain on resource as the team must have spent hundreds of hours and many tens of thouands of pounds building new bikes for him.

Tommy is a major force wherever he goes and whatever he rides these days. He was fast in his guest rides on the Swan (was it Hydrex back then?)  Honda in 2009 and of course on the Crescent Suzuki in 2009 as well as last year.

I am not a fellow southerner and am not Tommy's number one fan - but credit where it is due. The lad has overcome adversity (no spleen from his MX days and then those thigh breaks) and gives 100% effort and absolute value for money every time out.

Great to see that he has taken up exactly where he spent most of last season.

Tommy is one of a very few people who actually start a race expecting to win it. Many just hope for a good result and then hoon around doing their best in 10th place. To win BSB 2011 will be something massive and I expect Tommy to go to World Supers if he does it this year.

Go Tommy Hill!
