As we come to (roughly) the middle of the racing season, it looks like many of our sponsored riders are having great season, and are heading to some excellent 2012 championship results. Seton Tuning are leading the way, with all four riders currently in top 20 positions, including Ben Burke who is leading the National Superstock 600 class with the help of Morris Lubricants.
In the North Gloucester Road Racing club, AFB Racing rider Chris Pope is getting excellent results in both his classes – currently placed 3rd in the Phoenix Open and 4th in the Simon Consulting Powerbikes.
Away from the tarmac, motocrosser Luke Hill is having a brilliant season riding for Hill Power Racing, battling for the top spot in both the South West Premier Cup and the Devon and Cornwall MX Cup.
Wet Weekend at Mallory Park
April 25, 2012
Thundersport GB made it’s way to Mallory Park in Leicestershire this weekend where the rain was well and truly pouring for most of the weekend’s racing. With a good start to his weekend’s racing, Matt Pearce was making his way through the pack in his first race moving up to 15th position overall when he caught a white line and crashed out.
Sunday, however, turned out to be a better day for Matt in the Formula 600 with an excellent 8th position finish in the first race and a 9th position in the second.

Thundersport GB at Donington

After a 17th position finish on the Saturday, he went on to finish Sunday’s races with great 11th and 12th positions. With this weekend’s valuable points added onto his total, Matt is now 11th overall in the championship.

Great Season Start for Luke Hill
March 16, 2012
Mixed fortunes for HPR Riders Luke Hill and Leighton Holmes, who were taking part in the South West Premier Motocross Championship last weekend. Hill had a brilliant start to the weekend, qualifying on pole position, while team-mate Holmes qualified in 11th. The first race resulted in ankle injuries for both riders, with Holmes retiring from the weekend’s racing, and Hill pushed down into a 3rd position finish – but it didn’t stop him as he went on to get two 7th position finishes. This meant Hill completed the weekend in 3rd position overall, a great start to the 2012 season!
More Good Results at Thundersport
Also racing with Thundersport GB at Brands Hatch last weekend was Chris Pope, riding for AFB Racing. Chris took part in the Morello Services GP1 class, and after a tough start on Saturday he finished the first race in 21st position. The worsening weather on Sunday seemed to play in Pope’s favour though, as he completed the weekend with 6th and 5th positions respectively in the second and third races. These results put Chris in a great 7th position overall in the championship.
