The competition wasn’t as high as anticipated however, as many teams in the series’ Twins class did not take part in the round.

Two things stand out to me in this sentence, "Twins class, and not many teams showed up".

Way to go Buell, impressive as usual.

You'd just make fun of the series anyhow, so just let it go.

You must be reffering to the Buells typical results, I understand your pain,...being a buell owner and all it's got to be a bit frustrating.

Iam not making fun of the series, Iam making fun of the bike and all the countless years of lackluster results on the racetrack.

Buell sets the fastest time on the track even among the inline 4's.
