Well seems to a lot of people on FB saying it was dangerous and he should be banned.

Haven't seen it cos I'm poor, but have seen Lowe's race.... And he isn't a dirty rider.

Mind you probably the same people that called for Brookes's head 2 years ago when he took M Rutter out at Cadwell Park.

Yeah no bother !

Got fed up of dickheads on The BSB and Big Ed pages saying he should be banned from championship and others saying he would be docked to make title better.....

Oh and to answer your question I think he pushed the move ie tried to an overtake that was pushing the limits of what is possible but he had done the same move loads of times in race one and made it clean with exactly the same move, this time it didn't work because Shakey was under orders not to let him.
So no massive blame really just a crash through circumstance and timing, don't think a penalty is justified but will probably result in a small points/time dock would also be fair enough. If they dock him a full race worth of points then that's just a political decision to keep the championship close and Birdy happy

I heard he had been doing the same all day, yeah maybe it was the limit, but that's racing. Find limit and bend it further out.

Stupid when politics come into it, shouldn't have to dock him to keep Birdy happy.

it wasn't so much the limit of traction just the line he was taking in between 2 let hand bends, instead of running out from the first apex then cutting back to the second he was taking a slightly late apex on the first and holding in tight to overtake/be on the inside for the second, this is a great move if the rider in front runs the standard line but if he doesn't drift out and holds it in tight as well then there isn't the room and you hit.

To call for him to get a ban is just dickheads talking shite, probably die hard Shakey fans.

Oh and I still think Brookes was a wanker of a rider a couple of seasons ago and should have been anned, not speciicaly for that move but for his general attitude to other racers on the track. Still think he is a knob now but at least he has learned he isn't that good and not to ride above his ability so much and force his way through when he didn't have the talent to do it properly

Assen - 22 September 2013

The Race Director, the Judicial Clerk of the Course in the presence of the Riders' Judicial/Stewards Advisor considered the incident during MCE BSB race 2 between Alex Lowes (#22) and Shane Byrne (#67) at Turn 14 on Lap 4

Evidence was reviewed including broadcast, CCTV and on-board footage, marshals reports, ECU data and an explanation from the riders.

A penalty of exclusion from the race result has been inflicted on #22 Alex Lowes for causing contact which resulted in an accident.

The right of appeal was advised to the affected parties.


So that is the decision to take the all the points off lowes and leaves them only one point apart in the championship hmmmm :palm: more about the championship then the incident imo crock of shite

WHAT A LOAD OF BOLLOX........ :shoot: :shoot: :shoot:

LOWES attempted to pass where he had passed in race 1 and BYRNE shut the door..

IT WAS A LEGITIMATE ATTEMPT AND Shakey fucked it up...LOWES Did nothing wrong...
THIS IS purely a POLITICAL decision ...nothing to do with racing , just oneupmanship between people who have power and influence...

BIRD & PALMER need to be taken to one side and given a fucking good kicking IMHO.....IT'S RACING you fuckwits, these things happen... :palm:

See I have to agree with BD, it's racing and it's a bit dirty, or else they might as well be on a merry go round, lol..
