"Having experienced the Thundersprint for the first time last year I now understand the uniqueness of the event. It is a great motorcycle extravaganza, the likes of which I have never experienced before."
GP racing comes to the Thundersprint on the evening of Saturday 7 May with an all star cast taking the stage at Northwich Memorial Hall.
Doors open at 5pm and there is a hotpot supper available for £4.50, plus full bar facilities. The entertainment kicks off at 6.30 pm with appearances from classic superstars including, amongst many others, six times World Champion Jim Redman and European Champion Sammy Miller.
Following the classic icons, Steve Parrish takes centre stage for what is guaranteed to be one of the liveliest nights in the 2011 motorcycling calendar. Steve said: “Having experienced the Thundersprint for the first time last year I now understand the uniqueness of the event. It is a great motorcycle extravaganza, the likes of which I have never experienced before.
“I am really looking forward to Saturday evening when Matt Roberts and I can really get to know what makes Cal Crutchlow, Danny Webb and Chris Walker tick! And, trust me, I have a few questions to put to them that you will never hear on the BBC!”
Steve will be assisted – not that he needs any encouragement - by his BBC team mate Matt Roberts, as they try to control the three liveliest, and most outspoken, riders in motorcycle racing.
Cal Crutchlow, World Supersport Champion, and currently Britain’s only rider in MotoGP said: “I have heard so many good things about the Thundersprint that for 2011 I was determined to be there.
“I enjoy racing in World Championship events but they are serious work in every way.
“I’m coming to the Thundersprint to do what I love best in life: be with bikes, meet fans - and have a play about on the track too.”
The evening concludes with “The Little Black Hearts” who are tipped for rock band superstardom and are one of the best British rock bands of their generation.
