BEST TURNED OUT BIKE AWARDS
Such is the high standard of machines presented at ThundersportGB events, that Technical & Noise Control Officer Rodger Wadey came up with the idea at Oulton Park that we should have a ‘Best Turned Out Bike Award’ at each event in recognition.
Dave & I thought this to be a particularly good idea & so from Rockingham 2015 onward, this along with the prize of a free test day has been set in tablets of stone at The Home Of Sportsman Racing ever since…
Each machine in the running receives 2 gold stars at Technical Control following its conformity check (one on the bike & one on the Tech Control Card, this could be up to a hundred or more, so don't get too excited when YOU get a gold star, although it IS still recognition of your hard work) & the winner decided by the guys ‘n gals in the Tech Control Bay on race day one of the event, will receive a FREE Pre-Event Test Day at their next round as a reward for their discerning efforts & this will be announced & presented to the winner on the podium during day two of the event.
What will we be looking for? Well it’s not rocket science, put your machine on a paddock stand, take two steps back and look at it. THAT should tell you everything you need to know, but I can reveal that conformity & cleanliness come VERY high on the list of requirement.
If there is a situation where it is ‘Too Close To Call’ between two or three machines, then presentation of the rider’s personal equipment will be taken into consideration to break the deadlock (leathers, boots, gloves, helmet).
Yet another innovating idea from YOUR ThundersportGB & many thanks to you all for making it what it is today!
