|What is Thunderfest?|
Thunderfest comes to the fantastic Anglesey Circuit
with a bigger entry than ever and a vast array of classic bikes
ranging from screaming 50s to mighty 750cc British heavy metal.

behind Thunderfest is that riders set their own target speed and
then aim to ride as close to this as they can. This requires a high
degree of riding skill and concentration with the top riders able to
circulate for 25 minutes, plus two laps, within a tiny fraction of
1mph of their target time.

Other riders have a more relaxed approach. Stockport’s Mike Hunt, riding the “Michaelfixit” sponsored T500 Suzuki, dating from 1972, said: “I start off with good intentions having worked out all the correct revs to change gear and when to brake to get right on my target speed. Then I start having so much fun that it all goes out of the door and I can’t stop smiling – which is why I’ll never win the event.
"I’m just there for a great weekend and an awful lot of track time for a very modest entry fee
Mike’s racing compatriot, Ian Jackson, said: “Of course I want to beat Mike but for me the attraction of the Thunderfest is its laid back nature. We all take great pleasure in having a completely open paddock, meeting spectators and showing off our bikes – and there is no-where better in the world to do this than the Anglesey Circuit.”
