    2013 rule change is: Dry race start then it starts raining there will be pitstops throughout the race.3 pit crew only, so you may see riders making their own adjustments to save time.Looks like it could be good to watch.

    Didn't anyone watch superpole first thing this morning or Sky+ it. Well confused with the on screen lap timing. When they're quicker on the split times it's now in red whereas it used to be green and slower split times are in green, unless it's a technical hitch of course.

    What about the Pata Honda's in 8th and 9th? All gone CHIPS do you think and the Honda is now too long in the tooth for short circuit racing?

    Not going. To spoil your viewing but just a couple of comments ,Poor old Haslam took a massive high side at the end of race 2 and one can only feel the pain on that already busted leg and an observation James Toseland was on track prior to race two and had a quick chat with Whit . I can't tell if he looks super fit ( but it doesn't suit him ) or he is living the life of a " pop star" and looks a little strained but also seemed nervous .

    I noticed that Dave and it wasn't just in isolated areas ,maybe the threat of rain or maybe everyone is on holiday.
