Jim Redman is six times TT winner and is one of the very greatest names in the history of motorcycling. He will be leading a galaxy of classic motorcycling stars at next year’s Anglesey Thundersprint, on the 21 April.
Jim has been a regular at the last 14 Thundersprints. He said: “I have consulted my lawyers and they have confirmed that it would be illegal to run a Thundersprint without me riding – or at the very least immoral!
“I look forward to every single Thundersprint because it is the only event in the year where I actually race – if only against the clock.
“The Anglesey circuit looks to be absolutely fantastic – a real world class track. I have never been there before but it looks to be spectacular and it will be very relaxing to have a 2.1 mile circuit to play on.
“I am bringing my whole team with me in the form of Clive Brooker and his lovely CR750 Honda. Clive’s bike is beautifully prepared and I ride it so often that it feels very much my bike.
“Thundersprint 2013 is going to be a great event and I look forward to meeting all my fans in Anglesey.”
Thundersprint organiser, Frank Melling, said: “Jim is so much a part of the Thundersprint family that the event would not have been the same without him. His charm, charisma, modesty and love of race fans make him a very special person and we are delighted, and honoured, that Jim is joining us in Anglesey.”
