Hittin’ the Highside

There was MotoGP at Austin and World Superbikes at Aragon, but the racing was probably far more exciting with Thundersport GB at Donington Park this weekend. Fast Bikes friend and snapper, John Manclark, sent us these pics of Dan Frear taking part in a naughty highside exiting the Melbourne Loop. 

Frear, the reigning 600cc champ and Supertwins front-runner, launched his Kawasaki ER-6 on Saturday but valiantly raced on and bagged three podium places on Sunday. Getting the glove on “was a bit of an eye waterer” according to Dan.


Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Ian Allkins, who sadly lost his life in a racing incident at Donington this weekend. Incredibly, his wife led a tribute lap aboard his bike with fellow CB500 racers.
