I don't know how up to date this information is but it paints a pretty horrendous state of affairs, no wonder Triumph weren't interested in any sort of collaboration.

Cracking racing from BSB at Knockhill. Really looking forward to what young Rory Skinner can do. What is going on with Josh Brookes?

Josh Brookes has shown no pace at Oulton or Knockhill, very strange. Christian Iddon and O'Halloran looking very strong so far but it could all change at Brands in wet conditions. Super close racing as always, probably the best series in the world, as James Whitham says all the manufacturer road based bikes are competitive which is why they draw such big crowds.

Entertaining weekend from Brands with Christian Iddon deservedly winning the last race in topsy turvy conditions thereby giving him a clear lead in the standings. Rory Skinner is increasingly impressive for a newby meanwhile Brookes languishes mid field. Jeepers how brave are these lads on a damp circuit! Thruxton next weekend.

Just caught up with the action from Brands. Changeable conditions made for very interesting racing, the field are so closely matched at the top end. All the very best to Brad Jones.

Looking forward to catching up with the action from Thruxton, it should be a blast on such a fast circuit. There should be nice sideways action.

Pretty good action from Thruxton; I love the circuit, I could watch anything going through the fast sections of the track all day and not get bored. I need to find out who owns the various bits of land out in the country as I could spectate from there on day. The main spectator complex has never really thrilled me I'm afraid.

Anyway, a very dominant weekend by one rider but the action behind was good nonetheless. I hate to bang on and on about this (nobody is reading anyway!) but I'm still puzzled by Josh Brookes' form, I find the explanation given by the pundits to explain his current form (something about not getting the rear grip/feels he wants) a bit unsatisfactory. How does this happen overnight, has the tyre compounds and/or construction been changed for this season?

Also, is it me or are there fewer Kawasakis in the field this season? Their numbers seem to have been declining over the last couple of seasons. Have they been strangled by the regulations or have the likes of Ducati and Yamaha just moved on further with their bikes?

What makes it even more puzzling is that his team mate Christian Iddon is consistently fast and lies 3rd in the championship. Jason O'Halloran is starting to run away with the points this year but we still have another 6 rounds to go. Cadwell Park next which is bit tight for overtaking moves but spectacular nevertheless.

The rumours are that Leon Haslam will be back in BSB next year on Kawasaki to boost their presence in the series.

Enjoyable day at Snetterton on Saturday - some impressions of the day here - https://flic.kr/s/aHsmWxKGBW - the light late on for the sidecar race was really good.

He was out at Mallory a couple of weeks ago on a No Limits Trackday, mind you Leon was a 125

Nice to see Brookes starting to get up there again. It was great to see him leading again
