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.

“Despite the cold and wet conditions at the recent track assessment and general test sessions, we were very happy with the way the bike went”, says Sam Osborne. “We are waiting for the final data but it looks like MSG Racing has managed to squeeze a few more mph from my GSX-R 600 which was already a quick machine,” he adds.

That extra performance could well come in handy as Sam will be racing alongside the Thundersport 600 Elite bikes as his Sportsman class and the Elite class will be racing at the same time. As a result, 600 Sportsman riders score points in their own class but are also able to score points in the 600 Elite Championship.

The first racing weekend takes place at Brands Hatch beginning with practice on March 4th.

Lane Electronics established a Motorsport Division around three years ago to offer high performance electronic connector solutions for multiple applications across racing platforms including cars, bikes and boats at all levels of the sport. Lane Motorsport products are used extensively in bike racing.

Lane Motorsport offers the latest circular connectors from Souriau’s 8STA Series along with an increasingly wide range of accessories from HellermannTyton and Weald Electronics. This allows Lane Motorsport to offer a comprehensive motorsport interconnection solution which is available to specify and purchase online.
