As 'Team GB' continue their gold rush in the Olympics, Thundersport GB riders also prepare themselves for potential glory as they head to Pembrey this weekend for rounds ten and eleven of the Championships.
Our stars of the future in the J&S Aprilia Superteen Championship will all be out again and the majority will be trying to stop twelve year old Frazer Rogers from continuing his dominance in the class. The four riders behind Rogers in the hunt, all have special talent and are very capable of beating him, but so far, consistency has been the key and it is Frazer that holds the key to it.
Gary May, who currently leads two Championships in GP1 and Thundersport 600, will be hungry to extend his championship leads in both classes and keeping the two Rob's away. Rob Elsmere sits 31 points behind Gary in GP1 and Rob Hoyles is 58 points down in the 600 class, both riders have had recent success and have halted May's plans of running away with ease, Rob Hoyles especially is currently in the form of his life and still remains confident that he can mount a late title challenge.
For Elsmere, a low finish from our last round at Mallory shouldn't hinder his progress too much and he will be keeping close eyes on that #13 bike of May's.
The GP3 class has so far been dominated by a sixteen year old from Chelmsford, Ed Rendell's smart riding and stunning wins has seen him take charge of the GP3 Championship and the GP3 Cup, the only title that now illudes him is in the ACU Clubmans 125cc class, Fourteen year old Tom Weeden has been top of those charts from the start and even though Rendell ate into his lead at Mallory, he cannot be counted out of winning all three titles with a long way still to go.
Our action packed Junior Powerbike and Streetfighter races continued to impress the crowds on their last outing with perhaps one of the races of the season, going into Pembrey, Clinton De Tarnowsky is keen to continue his amazing recent flurry and hold on to that well earned lead at the front. Tony Coombes in second may look comfortable, but with Leon Jeacock returning and a possible 100 points to be won at Pembrey alone, he will need to keep an eye on him.

Steve Joy and Sam Read lead their Streetfighter categories, Steve in the 'A' class mentioned this may be his last season in racing and would love to go out with a bang, Sam on the other hand in the 'B' class, has plenty of years to come in the sport and will look to the Welsh circuit to take a firm grip on a Championship that still looks open.
Lee Reveley is one man that will be very focussed going into this weekends racing. Reveley can win the Sound of Thunder Championship in Wales and will hope he can continue to ride his Ducati to glory once again and walk away as Thundersport GB's first Champion of 2008.

He won't be alone though, GP2 rider Mark Davies is also closing in on the 250GP title and excusing any hiccups, the Barnsley rider could make his return year to racing, a most successful one. Chris McAloran, an early season contender will be delighted to return to the saddle in GP2, and could well feature as a top three contender.
A welcome back for Will Hodgson too, having recovered from injury after some interesting pit bike tricks, he will look to mix it with the 250GP riders and extend his Moto 450 Championship lead.
