Thundersport golden era superbike tyres

Following an extensive weekend of testing, we are excited to announce a partnership with Ryan Strafford and the RS Racing team for the 2015 Thundersport GB season.

Based in Mirfield, West Yorkshire, Ryan was crowned Streetfighter Class B champion last year, also narrowly missed out on taking the Streetfighter Extreme class as well.

This year he has his sights firmly set on the Golden Era Superbike title, with his Honda SP2 currently awaiting some final preparations.

Following a weekend of mixed weather at both Mallory and Cadwell Park, Ryan said: “The continental tyres responded well to the RC-51. With wet conditions at Mallory, the Conti’s offered loads of grip and instilled confidence. Although Cadwell was dry ish it was bloody cold and yet we could set some good pace on the continental slicks”

The team went on to say “Continental bring a huge amount of knowledge to the table and just having them on hand at testing this weekend was a great help. With the first round at Brands hatch just around the corner we look forward to putting these tyres through their paces under race conditions.”

This year promises to be an exciting one, as we continue to work with the likes of Darvill Racing and Dilligaf Racing, both championship winners on Continental in 2014, as well as the likes of CMR64 Racing in the Hottrax Modern Era Classic Superbike. The whole team wishes Ryan the very best for the upcoming season, and we will be following his progress closely!
