Brands Hatch BSB: Waters triumphs in the wet

The second MCE British Superbike race at Brands Hatch today has seen records broken with it’s almost unbelievable podium, as wet weather allowed Tyco Suzuki rider Josh Waters to take his maiden BSB win, ahead of fellow podium virgins Richard Cooper and Keith Farmer.

The one bike rule

If there's one thing I'd like to see banned in short circuit racing is the completely stupid and unnecessary 'one bike rule' The farce that was the second BSB race with so much time wasted because of concerns over weather would be avoided if teams were allowed to have more than one bike ready for their rider. If there's a team that wants to have five bikes built and ready to use then so be it let them do it.

The 'one bike rule does not save money and can end up costing a rider who is an innocent victim in a crash that results in a red flag situation where without a spare bike he can't make the restart or if a riders machine develops a fault on the start line  - with the 'one bike rule' his race is done but if he had a spare bike.......

Let's do away with the 'one bike rule' and then we can have flag to flag racing and a race wont need to be declared dry or wet as a spare bike will be ready to go if a rider so wishes to use it.

Yes, I'd agree with that, it would also add to the continuity of the programme. Still great racing though.
