Hampson Hughes Solicitors, one of the North-West’s leading law practitioners, are sponsoring this year’s Thunderfest time trials which will be held at the beautiful Darley Moor Circuit on September 15.

Thunderfest is a unique event for classic motorcycles made before 1978 demanding high speed riding skill as competitors decide their own lap times and then battle to achieve their declared target. Thunderfest winners are so skilful that they can achieve times within one hundredth of one mile an hour over 20 minutes of close fought, and high speed, competition.

Lisa Pearson, Marketing & Business Development Manager of Hampson Hughes, said: “We pride ourselves on applying a lot of thought to everything we do, so we were really attracted to a motorcycle competition which combined all the action of racing with more mental effort than is required to win Master Mind! Truly, motorcycle racing for the thinking rider!

“We love bikes, and motorcyclists, so Thunderfest is a great opportunity to be involved with the biking community.”

Thunderfest organiser, Frank Melling, said: “Hampson Hughes joined us at this year’s Thundersprint and were great to have on board. There can’t be a more friendly and enthusiastic firm of solicitors anywhere in Britain so it was a pleasure to welcome them as title sponsor for Thunderfest.

“The entry for this year’s Thunderfest is the best ever and we’re looking forward to a fantastic day’s classic motorcycle sport – made all the better by being part of the Darley Moor Motorcycle Club’s all star entry of modern machines.”
