Scott and Sammy star at Thundersprint

“I have ridden at the Thundersprint twice before,” says Redding, “and I honestly loved every minute of it. It is a giant two-day party for anyone who loves bikes and, best of all, I’ve got the time to talk to fans.”

Sammy Miller is a firm favourite with the Thundersprint crowds and will bring two very rare bikes to Darley Moor, Derbyshire, over the weekend of May 10-11.


Alongside his 1954 Rennsport BMW, Sammy will have the newly acquired rare, four cylinder, Type 673 works Jawa as ridden by 125cc world champion Bill Ivy.

Sammy said: “I am a huge fan of the Thundersprint. It’s a unique event – it is run really slickly but at the same time manages to maintain the relaxed, informal atmosphere of a true classic event. I’m really looking forward to May.”
