Great race from  Steven coming from 13th on the grid to less than a second behind the winner Aegerter. Good damage limitation.

Janee.  Excellent race.  I wonder why he qualified so bad?  13th to 2nd in that class is no easy task.  Loud applause to SO4!

Also lekker to see someone giving Jonathan Rea a bit of uphill on the track.  A good win by Toprak.

WSBK is still a ways to go, but yes, it looks like that.  I love the fact that Yamaha is finally the make to take it to Kawasaki.  For some years it seemed it was going to be Ducati, but their challenged faded. 

Toprak's 1st, 2nd, 1st today was pretty cool to watch. 

SO4 again did a great jop in SSP600, but only managed 6th.  Not bad for a 12th spot start.

Let's not forget young Dorren Loureiro racing in SSP300. 4th and 10th today.

Rabat out already, results not good enough it seems.

It is amazing how his career went down the drain from 2014 when he was the Moto 2 World Champion.

So, Yamahas are not that indestructible, (after race 1 yesterday, when Toprak had some sort of electrical failure and was out of the race)!! :pot:

OK - JR1 only came 4th in the rain!

Very closely contested between Yamaha, Ducati and Kawasaki in the grand standings. Tight race for sure. Exciting stuff

Brilliant duel between Bassani and Toprak dicing for the lead, while the Yamaha was still running!

Nice hard fought win for Odendal today and it looks like Toprak is on his way to the title.
