2012 sees one hour of Thundersport GB action per-event exclusive to Motors TV.
The Isle of Man TT Races will this year feature a lightweight class called Supertwins, which is broadly similar to Thundersport GB’s 2011 GP2 category. To keep things as simple as possible we have now re-branded our class as Supertwins for 2012 and it will continue to contain a Minitwin Cup for those competitors who wish to run their bikes in un-tuned guise. We think this class now has enormous potential, given the level of international coverage afforded to the TT.
Stimulating elbow rubbing action where you can see top European riders on motorcycles naked - that is, without fairings and flat handlebars race - at breakneck speeds. These productions, exclusive to Motors TV, contest 9 rounds at premier circuits all over Britain.
HEL Performance Streetfighter racing has captured the imagination of the biker fraternity as more and more make the switch to this machinery on the roads. Bridgestone Thundersport 500 champions a truly budget form of racing, with strict rules that make competition closer and affordable for youngsters to progess through the ranks and get noticed, while their older compatriates try to give them a run for their money!
The Thundersport GB HEL Performance Streetfighters has grown from a fairly off the wall concept when first introduced in 2008, to one of the most successful series for ‘naked’ bikes anywhere in the world. Others have tried to imitate it, but there is just something about this grid that attracts an eclectic mix of people and machinery and that in itself creates something very special that just works.
Bridgestone Thundersport 500: Ever since Leon Haslam and James Toseland burst onto the scene via the old Honda CB500 Cup (as the class was then known), these humble ex-commuter parallel twins have been producing some fantastic racing at a lower cost than any other series in the UK.
Bridgestone Tyres are once again providing the race rubber as the control product at absolute bargain basement prices and this highlights both Bridgestone and Thundersport GB's commitment to keeping this very important part of racers' budgets as low as possible.
New for 2012, Bridgestone will also be providing over £1,500 worth of prize tyres for the championship in the form of “Rider of the Day” awards to be given out at each event.
LMB London have also committed to providing end of season awards of £1,500 worth of entries to any Thundersport GB 2013 class for the winner of the main championship as well as £500 worth of entries for the winner of the Thundersport 500 Novice Cup. (these may be used for testing or racing)
These great little bikes can be picked up as a full race package for less than £1,000 and can be run all season on a budget that wouldn’t even buy you a pair of grandstand tickets to the British Grand Prix as a spectator.
And all of this is available for your enjoyment - only on Motors TV!
