As we continue our series of posts on Sam Osborne's progress in the Thundersport GB motorcycle season we head to Donington where, in his own words, Sam’s second event of the season did not go according to plan!
After another good practice session at Donington Park, Sam Osborne had every reason to feel confident going into the three-race fixture that made up the second weekend of the 2016 Thundersport GB season. Unfortunately for Sam and many other competitors, the weather had other ideas. Sam, who rides for the leading Suzuki specialist tuning and racing team MSG Racing, is sponsored by The Motorsport Division of Lane Electronics.
A first in class, a second in class and two top ten finishes overall represents a fantastic start to the 2016 season by our sponsored Thundersport 600 Sportsman competitor Sam Osborne. 24-year-old Sam, who rides for the leading tuning and racing team MSG Racing, modestly described the first race weekend of the season at Brands Hatch as a “testing weekend with extreme conditions... but I am very happy to get my first win of the season and put some points on the board”.
Successful off-season practice and testing as well as a bike that “promises to give a few more mph” all suggest that Thundersport 600 Sportsman competitor Sam Osborne is set to have a great year. 24-year-old Sam, who rides for the leading tuning and racing team MSG Racing, is also sponsored by The Motorsport Division of Lane Electronics.
