Fantasy Riders Round 3

Well, Phil & Myself headed to Donington Park yesterday to see the Brit Showdown in full swing at the World Superbikes. Unfortunantely it didn't got quite to plan. It looked like Leon Haslam was going to show them how its done, but former MotoGP star Marco Melandri on his Yamaha R1 (I passed the team trucks on the M1 this morning) took 1st place. Congratulations to Czech's Jakub Smrz who pretty much lead the whole race but lost out to Marco in the final laps and finished 2nd with Carlos Checa stealing 3rd from Leon in the final lap into the Melbourne Loop.

The podium champagne spaying looked interesting with 1st place going to Carlos Checa, 2nd Marco Melandri and 3rd to Brit Leon Camier.

Next weekend is back to MotoGP at Jerez on Sunday 3rd April; the cut-off for changes is Friday 1st April 17:00 hours.
