Thundersport GB

I have just read the announcement of the creation of Thundersport GB (http://www.thundersportgb.com/) I am in two minds as to the Value of it. Firstly the involvement of Dave Stewart in any form of UK motorcycle sport is a good thing. Dave is the most honest and straight forward guy I’ve met. Not like some of the self serving pricks who seem to dominate motorcycle sport in the UK.

On the other hand we have the MRO series and having spent several seasons at MRO It certainly helps to raise the standard of riding. The question remains Do we need another series?

One other thing that does bother me slightly is the involvement of Motors TV. It’s great to have a televised series BUT how many people are going to watch it on Motors TV especially if the stick to their habit of airing programs at seemingly random times. TV coverage Good..Obscure TV coverage bad.  If i was approaching sponsors for funding telling them that the series was on Motors TV wouldn’t not have much of a pull.  On the other hand The series has to start somewhere.

I really do look forward to what dave has come up with and I hope it does live upto expectations. But i hope it’s not to the detriment of any other series or clubs.
