The only thing is that he will probably be off for 4-6 weeks now because of his thumb injury. So I hope that his ban comes in when he is back... and not from now...
Anyone else think it was suspicious that he seemed ok immediately after his accident?
Brookes had picked his Honda back up again straight after the accident looking to carry on riding, was arguing quite enthusiastically with Chris Walker after the red flag, and then walked back down to the track to the pits carrying his helmet. All with no sign of what must be a very painful injury.
I know the adrenaline levels are sky high and these guys are tough but it just seems a bit coincidental that he seems ok 15 mins after his accident but 2 hours later he's already got a cast on his hand during a tv interview. Would have thought they would need to give him a proper examination, make sure the bone and ligament are back in place properly before putting a permanent cast on? Seems like someone thought his injury up to keep him out of the 2nd race and harms way.
+1 goody76, what would be the point of doing it now, when he's going to be out injured anyway, its a pity they gave him his visa, none of this would have happened otherwise

i think they should kick him out completely its the seconed time that he has down this now and simon andrews was luckey not to be hurt so what the point in them keeping someone in that rides like a twat tbh and putting the other riders in danger i say kick him out and give his ride to steve plater i was not happy on sunday i was shouting at the tv stupid lil boy
Don't agree. The championship would be poorer without him.
Yep, he fucked up on sunday, but unfortunately it does happen in racing to just about everyone who ever runs near the front at any level , at some point or another.
I think the penalty imposed is a token towards appeasing the aggreived parties within the constraints of the rulebook - I don't believe those who lost out from the incident would be feeling the same if the finishing order was taken from one lap back.
I view the Guintoli incident as a totally different affair, making the mistake he did on a warm up lap warrants a harsher penalty IMO
i think the ban should be enough , he needs the shakeup though , neil tuxworth didnt comment did he , he should give him a real bollockin . and any more daft riding he should be on the plane home with charlie cox !
i mean what was he thinking , he should know from practise there is only one line into the hairpin ! how was he going to get round if he had got it stopped , he should have been on the left hand side of the track !
good job the bales stopped his bike , makes you worry that these old tracks are not up to the speed of modern machinery .
Bin talking to a mate who was stood by the Marshals post at Shaws when this happened.
He said that there was no way Brooks would have made the hairpin at the speed he came in at even if he had stayed on it. He also mentioned that Brooks was grinning as he walked back to the pit.
Whitam even said just before, that Brooks was looking far too impatient.
