Q: Where did everyone end up? A: Chundering in Aaron Brown's van
Leon Morris wrapped up the championship at Castle Coombe but he was pushed hard all season by Edwards, Gilbertson, Brown and occasionally Darren Fry. The 8-round season started at Brands BSB and also headed to Assen and Monza for its away rounds, finally wrapping up at Silverstone.
The guest rider who caused the biggest stir was ex-Triple Challenge winner Chris Northover; with a win at Thruxton in monsoon conditions. The rider's rider of the season went to Mark Cheetham who produced some fantastic race results ..but also managed to drop it on the warm-up lap for Monza's race one? When meeting Troy Bayliss at Monza, Cheetham had written Troy 21 on his chest in black marker. Bayliss didn't know what to say.. Classic awkward moment, so funny!
So here's how the 2011 season rounded out:
