Bit of a poor decision imo...racing incident..do feel a bit sorry for Shakey, he was the innocent party, he couldnt see Lowes was there and there was contact..Carlos is bang on with the diff lines they were both taking..they just arrived (on diff lines)at the same point of the track at the same time..If they,d both stayed on then the points gap diff between em after the race would,a prob only swung a max of say 10points...so i,d have docked Alex that many....woulda been fairer maybe?

Course they were on the limit........Shakey couldn't turn Tighter than Lowes and lowes had way more corner speed........Lowes wanted to take advantage of that, as he had done all daybut Shakey wanted to stop him, by blocking him.....to do that, he (Shakey) HAD to slow down.
If anyone was dirty here, it was Shakey!!!

I don't even like him, so I may be Biased :ok:

Nope that's spot on Armi, there is no way Shakey could have held the tighter line without slowing so yeah he blocked Lowes so at very best it was both there faults and so should have been judged a 50/50 racing incident.

It would have been judged 50/50 had it been earlier in the season, but this late on, to give one rider a huge points advantage was never gonna happen, this was purely a money making decision to keep the championship close to the very last race.

I AGREE NIX.....


a political decision, based on making money and not racing...

I for one , now want Shakey Byrne to bin his bike and DNF in every race from here on in...dirty cheating cunt!

I cant see how the series has any credibility now.

Shakey has now gone right down in my estimations.

Shane Burns is a whining twat, moaned like fuck the year the Showdown was introduced because if the old style format had stayed he would have won the chamionship on points, second year of the Showdown and he wins and he's "oh its great, i love the showdown, great format blah blah blah" except he failed to mention if the old style format had returned, like he wanted the previous year, he would have come nowhere and Josh Brookes would have won, whining moaning hyprocritacal twat

Lowes has been running tighter lines than Burne all year....Agree with Nix.......Burn just winges, when things don't go his way...Lowes and Brooks just grit there teeth and get on with it.

Really hope Lowes wins this.....If anyone can...HE can!!!

Can't believe the comments about people wanting Lowes head.....What UTTER tosh!!!

It was both their faults, neither one should have been found guilty, as i said before, earlier in the season it would have been declared a 50/50 racing incident, but this close to the end of the season that was never gonna happen, and thats what annoys me most, its blatently obvious that the powers that be are manipulating it to make the final a close run battle, rather than let Alex run away with it, the EXACT reason they brought in the Showdown in the first place, so that no single rider could have a huge lead in the points at the season end as they were worried attendance and viewing figures for the last few races would drop if it was a fore gone conclusion who would win, it fucking stinks

When someone is going as fast as they can Len, on a given line, they can't change that line in a hurry.........Burn Slowed to Cut Lowes off....he(Lowes) had NO WHERE to go!

It was also Burn Saying to Lowes, take that and Lowes telling him to Fuck off!!!

Especially as they know Shakey will probably win the final rounds, I would say they want him to win so they can put there "most winningest" headlines up
