For the 2009 season I will race in the aggressive and entertaining Streetfighter class with the ThundersportGB club, and the aim is nothing less than race wins and the championship title. At a taster race on a borrowed standard bike at the final round of â€˜08, I scored pole position and both race wins.
The 2008 season was my novice year, and I entered Thundersportâ€™s top class, GP1, on a GSX-R1000 K4. Racing on a shoestring, with no back-up at all and riding the oldest bike on the grid, I scored strong results against fierce competition. These performances earned recognition and praise from commentators, organisers, and rivals alike, culminating in the clubâ€™s Rookie Of The Year award.
Moving to the Streetfighter class makes it more affordable to be competitive, and delivers better value to sponsors.
