Entries for Thundersprint 2011 have been pouring in and now there are just a few spaces left in both the sprint racing and cavalcade sections of the two day festival of bikes, held over the weekend of May 7 and 8 in Northwich town centre. So you better act fast if you want to join Cal Crutchlow (and Moby!) at this great event.

There are eleven classes in the sprint, ranging from pre-war to post classic and sidecar. The cavalcade is open to bikes, and riders, of all ages. Thundersprint organiser Frank Melling said: “We have a fantastic entry of motorcycling superstars but we welcome enthusiasts just as warmly. What we particularly need are riders who are spectator friendly and are willing to share their love of motorcycling with the tens of thousands of fans who pack Northwich every year. A big smile, a nice bike and a willingness to chat to spectators is far more important than being fast. Riders will share the same paddock and track as MotoGP stars Cal Crutchlow and Danny Webb and classic icons Jim Redman and Sammy Miller.”
The Thundersprint Cavalcade is one the great British bike events, with over 200 cavalcaders and racers taking to the streets of Northwich for three laps of the town, and a full day of aural and visual hedonism on the track. Make sure you’re there to soak it all up.
