Here we go then last race weekend of the year, looks like sat is dry but rain pretty much all sunday going by todays forecasts.

Shakey is 9 points in front of Josh Brookes, Lowes is 24 points behind and Hill is 42 points back.

My own thoughts are Shakey is going to win the title, the last race at brands is just the perfect combination for him (maybe in 2014 have the final race at a neutral track thruxton or donnigton), i don't think josh brookes will be consistent enough.

With sundays rainy forecast i wonder if Alex Lowes can keep up his winning streak or will he bin it?
Also in the dry at silverstone/assen Laverty was having tyre problems, with a damp track in store for sunday could he be take some big points away from byrne/brookes, plus Tommy Hill can't win the title but some good results could mess up other peoples chances.

Laastly what do they get for a 1st,2nd,3rd,4th it's time to work out what positions the riders need for the title.

- Can't forget the support races can we?

Supersport- Glen Richards is on 356 with Jack Kennedy just behind on 343

Superstock 600 we've got Ben Burke and Lee Jackson both on 174 with James Rose just behind with 169.

Superstock 1000- Keith Farmers prety much got that wrapped up

125'S- Luke Hedgers got the title, would love to see him and bridwell interviewed for some great accents.

Farmer won the title at the last round. Don't rule Brooke's out.

I took 75/1 odds on Brookes/Richards title winners earlier today.

It's certainly tight, but I think it's Shakey for the title.

I can't wait for this as apparently I'm going courtesy of Swan Yamaha. biggrin

Nice, especially with sundays forecast.

I had a box for april's race, it was nice but i prefer being stood inside at druids or on the bend at hawthornes.

Gutted, but we've been to Assen and Magny Cours in the last month and all sorts of other travelling in between and therefore we've decided to watch from the couch. There's also an element of me that doesn't like the showdown format, I'm somehow less engaged with the series in terms of who wins, I couldn't care less as it just seems like a lottery now.

Supersport is going to the wire and I can't wait to watch it, cheering for Glen all the way . . . .

I have to give credit to P1neil for this comment on a previous thread about WSBK, but they haven't needed a showdown, handbag fight, golden goal or any other fiddling to produce a series to be decided on the last weekend.

Just done 3 different weather forecasts for the weekend and it looks good.
Dry sat, dry sun but showers from 4.

Based on the fact it's not wet i think lowes will be on form, can't wait until sat.

Are the using indy track on sat or gp all weekend?

That does tend to get forgotten in the battle for the finish line in final race. Hopper would probably have been champ if not for that ?
So absolutely anything CAN happen. That's racing & why we like it..

I reckon Shakey will win it.
I reckon we will see him and Jenny battle for first but he will get it.
