Six times World Champion Jim Redman is leading a host of classic motorcycling stars at the Darley Moor Thundersprint on 10-11 May 2014.

TT winner Jim, who returned to the Isle of Man earlier this year to fulfil a Bennetts Biking Dream, has been a regular visitor to the last 15 Thundersprints. He said: “I have consulted my lawyers and they have confirmed that it would be illegal to run a Thundersprint without me riding – or at the very least immoral!

“I look forward to every single Thundersprint because it is the only event in the year where I actually race – if only against the clock.

“I have had a good look at the video of the Darley Moor circuit and it looks a really great little track and just so much fun to ride. The setting is beautiful too and it will make a fantastic venue for a world class event like the Thundersprint.

“I am bringing my whole team with me in the form of Clive Brooker and his lovely CR750 Honda. Clive’s bike is beautifully prepared and I ride it so often that it feels very much my bike.

“Thundersprint 2014 is going to be a great event and I look forward to meeting all my fans next May at Darley Moor.”
