Welcome to the beta version of the new Women & Golf website. Our web monkeys are still hard at work and welcome your feedback.  



This weekend is the last round of the ThundersportGB Championships and with some titles still up for grabs as well as the Race of The Year, it’s sure to be one worth watching.

Rookies of the year when it comes to mounting a successful campaign that was no more than an idea 12 months ago, Thundersport has delivered some fantastic racing and has had no trouble in creating a great arena for riders.

"In what’s been a fanatic and manic years racing, you blink and it’s gone! It’s been a real eye opener for me," said director Richard Day.


"Running a race series has been tough but with the help of Dave and Bernadette Stewart it was always going to be run well and we work with the best. This weekend is our finale and it should make for fantastic entertainment but there’s no rest for the wicked as we are obviously planning and creating a bigger and better arena for 2009."

Of course one of the main features that sticks out is the illustrious Race of The Year at Mallory Park on Sunday. The Annual event always hosts a list of BSB stars mixed in this year with our very own Thundersport riders in what should be a great race.
Rizla Suzuki rider Tom Sykes is just one of the names that will be showcasing the event and with him and high profile sponsors Rizla making their last appearance on the Suzuki this weekend, there will be some history made too.

Amongst the action there are also some Championships to be decided……

The electric and fast Junior Powerbike and Streetfighter races have this year been full of scuffles and paint swapping. With three classes in one effectively, the battles to keep your eye on will most definitely be #36 Clint De Tarnowsky, as he looks to fend off #23 Tony Coombs. #71 Steve Joy is inches away from claiming the Streetfighter ‘A’ title and he will need to keep #200 Steve Hodgson at bay to reign supreme, and finally the Streetfighter ‘B’ Championship will no doubt be fought between #99 Sam Read, #37 John Hardwicke and #194 Phil Page.

Elsewhere, in the ACU Clubmans 125cc Championship, #11 Tom Weeden, #85 Adam Dudley, #149 Jason Dobson and #13 Sam Burman will be out on track to fight for their end of season positions against leader Ed Rendell #12, who has already secured both the GP3 & GP3 Cup titles.

Perhaps one of the most exciting classes to keep a close eye on though is the Thundersport 600 class, earlier in the year it seemed nothing could stop Gary May #13 from claiming his second title to add to his GP1 glory, but Peterborough’s Rob Hoyles #59 enjoyed our two Welsh trips and collected a handful of wins, trophies and points to take it into a last round showdown.
Freelance Journalist Hoyles, is still looking for sponsorship for next years season as is Gary May, so the importance of the overall win is important for the both of them.

Rob Hoyles:
‘I can’t wait to get out there and just race my socks off as I did at Anglesey, if I do my best then I might be able to put enough pressure on Gary to force an error out of him. All I can do is win, the rest is out of my hands.
It’s been a great year and fingers crossed with a bit of luck and some sponsorship, I can be back again next year and challenge for another title in Thundersport’

With it all to play for in the last rounds of Thundersport GB’s first season, you’d be crazy to miss it, with Television coverage, top BSB stars, Grid Girl Finals and the usual busy paddock, Thundersport GB is go!
