WSB 1993 Scott Russell- the last person to win the championship for Kawasaki. Tom Sykes came within half a point of winning the championship again in 2012. He led more laps than the rest of the field PUT TOGETHER!!! Still, he would have won had the organizers run the Italian round correctly- due to weather (or wanting an Italian on the podium?) they stopped the race early and awarded only half points- Sykes won that race. With full points he would have been champion.
