I have recently discussed with Clinton Howe of Dunlop Tyres, the possibility of supporting riders within the GBRacing 600 Sportsman Elite Championship and can now confirm on behalf of Dunlop Tyres that they will supply a prize scheme for those riders using their product (front and rear) over the weekend of each THundersportGB race event.
As you are probably all aware, Sportsman riders accumulate Elite points in addition to Sportsman points and indeed 2017 Sportsman riders dominating at the sharp end of the Elite points table on several occasions.
SO, the prize will consist of:
1 set of free D213GP Pro type tyres to the highest 600 Elite points scorer of the weekend (or wet equivalents if preferred).
1 free D213GP Pro rear tyre to the second highest 600 Elite points scorer of the weekend (or wet equivalent if preferred).
1 free D213GP Pro front tyre to the third highest 600 Elite points scorer of the weekend (or wet equivalent if preferred).
Prize tyres will be supplied at the following round by Holbeach Motorcycle Tyres (HMT Racing). Tyres at the final event will be supplied on the last day following the final GBRacing 600 Sportsman Elite race once the results have been confirmed.
For riders to qualify for the prize fund, they MUST use Dunlop tyres, front and rear, and they will need to have their bikes branded with Dunlop logo’s on the front fender or forks and also Dunlop logo’s on the swing arm or rear end of the fairing.
ThundersportGB Marketing Director Syd Richard-Day says:
"I'm confident most will join me in thanking Clinton Howe (nickname 'Harry' - you'll find him around and about the HMT Racing awning at our events for help and advice on all things tyre related) for making this happen and of course Dunlop as a company for this extremely generous offer which I feel helps generate evermore momentum for our sport.
No wonder their slogan is Forever Forward"
