Six times World Champion and TT winner Jim Redman 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 Darley Moor Thundersprint, which will be held over the weekend of May 10/11, 2014.
Jim has been a regular at the last 15 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.
“I have had a good look at the video of the Darley Moor circuit (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOChVhw0YwI) and it looks a really great little track and just so much fun to ride. The setting is beautiful too and it will make a fantastic venue for a world class event like the Thundersprint.
“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 2014 is going to be a great event and I look forward to meeting all my fans next May at Darley Moor.”
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 makes him a very special person and we are delighted, and honoured, that Jim is joining us at Darley.”
