Following a crash earlier this month at Snetterton, our sponsored racer Sam Osborne considered himself lucky to be able to get to, let alone ride at, Oulton Park. There was nothing wrong with his bike when he crashed, but he fractured his L3 (a vertebra located in the lower back portion of the spinal column) – ouch!!
This season's first event at Donington was declared "a great success" by our sponsored rider, Sam Osborne. After an excellent early season practice and with some key modifications to his Suzuki, including the addition of suspension components by the leading Italian manufacturer Mupo, Sam was confident that he could compete on equal terms with the leading riders in the field at the season's opening race day.
Sam Osborne has made his racing comeback and it was certainly a roller-coaster weekend at the iconic Brands Hatch circuit.
You may remember that our sponsored bike rider Sam Osborne had to stop racing just after the season’s start last year after being diagnosed with Post-Concussion Syndrome. He sustained a head injury during a crash at a testing session at the end of 2015, the consequences of which only became apparent a few months later. Now, Sam is on course to return to racing in 2017 and will compete on a bigger bike.
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.
