Rockingham chosen by Thundersport

Have your say

Motorcycle racing will once again feature on the Rockingham calendar in 2013 following confirmation the Northamptonshire circuit will be hosting a round of the Thundersport GB National Championships in the summer.

The UK’s second largest, and the fastest growing, bike race series, Thundersport GB offers riders and fans alike the chance to watch an awesome array of two-wheel machines in action.

Thundersport GB is the most exciting and varied series in British motorcycle racing and with up to 20 different championship titles up for grabs, the packed schedule guarantees two days of non-stop action and entertainment.

Rockingham’s chief executive, Charlotte Orton, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Thundersports GB back to Rockingham next season.

“It is a fantastic action-packed race weekend, which offers something for spectators across the generations.”

Rockingham will host Round 10 & 11 of Thundersports GB over the weekend of July 27 and 28, with 18 races on the Saturday and a further 20 on Sunday.

Thundersport GBs director of racing, Dave Stewart, said: “Last year Rockingham was added to our calendar, as we believe it offers a unique challenge with its anti-clockwise layout and mixture of technical turns, fast straights and sweeping curves.”

Ticket prices will be available at later this month.
