How unlucky was Toprak in R1? Still he came back strong to keep his lead. Don’t rule out Redding at this stage

Superbike star Dean Berta Vinales (a cousin of Maverick) has died aged just 15 after his bike crashed in a race.
The young motorcyclist tragically passed away today following a crash in the Supersport 300 support race of the World Superbike Championship in Jerez.
The race was 11 laps old when Spaniard Vinales crashed along with three other riders at turn two, forcing the director to red flag the race.
'After a serious incident during WorldSSP300 Race 1, Dean Berta Vinales has sadly succumbed to injuries,' World Superbike said in a statement.

So very sad, just 15 years old. I believe he rode for the Vinales family junior rider programme for helping young Spanish talent progress.

Tragic news indeed. 2 wheel racing is just about the most visceral experience in motor racing for me as a mere spectator but inherently very dangerous particularly amongst the small classes where the fighting amongst the pack is so close.

I do often wonder regarding the age of very young riders allowed in road racing especially at this kind of level. I don't know what they need to apply for a licence but I would assume that most have had schoolboy motocross experience ?
I would think that at that age they think that they are indestructible (just like I was)

Mmm, I'm afraid to admit that my antics on a road bike all those years ago were less than desirable. Still Jonathan Rea's only just passed his test...
Back to the racing, Loris Baz is looking very good on the Go Eleven bike subbing for Chas D. this weekend but judging by race 1 Toprak is seemingly unstoppable at the pointy end, just hoping that Scott redding can find some more pace in this afternoon's race.

Well realistically Redding's hope of a tilt at the title are now scuppered surely? I'm sure Rea and his team will find a way to improve but for me the Kawasaki appears cumbersome at every turn, it's back to their perennial problem of turn in and cornering problems.

Toprak now really seems to have the momentum in the title race. Just think how much further he would be ahead if he hadn't had that mechanical failure in Barcelona

Thoughts very much with the Vinales family after a tragedy like that

I hope the powers that be are sitting up and paying attention; something needs doing, I don't know what, but something needs to change to further reduce the risks for these kids.

There was a discussion on a motorsport podcast following the death of another young 15 year old rider a few months ago and the consensus appeared to be that the lack of engine power may be contributing because you get groups of riders in very close proximity for most of the race as nobody can really get away. If a rider has the misfortune of going down in the middle of the group, it is hard for those following to see and avoid them. Once you're in this position, it's just luck whether you're hit or not.

Quite a fight back by Redding in Argentina, the first race incident ruined his weekend but what a battle at the top.

Deserved championship win for Toprak in the changeable monsoon climate of the Phillipines but as predicted Rea didn't hand it over on a plate. We've seen some really hard racing this year between the 2 major protagonists with Scot Redding throwing punches as well, be interesting to see how he fares next year at BMW and a somewhat sad farewell to Tom Sykes and Chas Davies.

Fair play to the Indonesian circuit, I was sceptical as to whether it would be finished and homologated in time to host the final SBK round but they managed it.

Toprak, Rea and Redding have been outstanding this season. I have even more respect for Rea for his sheer fighting spirit and extracting so much from a somewhat 'restricted' Kawasaki. The trio were in a league of their own pretty much all through the season.

I think this has been one of the best seasons in a long while; I'm surprised there isn't much talk about it here and elsewhere. That final rain-soaked race was just stupendous!

Congrats to Toprak and Yamaha (is there anything they didn't win this season?)

Looking forward to 2022.

Caught the highlights last night. Shame the weather caused a bit of delay, but a well deserved title from Toprak. Rea didn't go down fighting and, as expected, dignified in defeat. His reign had to come to an end sometime

We'll see what happens next season. Hopefully more great battle between the 3 R's

A great season! Looking forward to 2022... and hope Bautista and Rinaldi can put up a good fight on their Ducati bikes.
