Thundersport GB: Jinks ready to shake up Kramer domination

In News, Thundersport GB

SUPERTWIN supremo Paul Jinks plans to topple the Kramers as he returns to Thundersport GB action with his number one rider John Simpson this weekend.

Former champ Simpson will once again pilot the Trickbits JHS SVR18 machine, as he’s joined by Max Dixon aboard the SVR17.

Simpson last raced the SVR18 at Aberdare Park in July…

And with Jinks confident his bike is now even more competitive and Simpson ready for some fun on track, the team will be coming out swinging at Cadwell Park this weekend.

Jinks and Simpson last appeared in the series’ previous trip to the Lincolnshire track back in May, with the 2016 champion beating Kramer’s Lukas Wimmer in two of the three races he contested.

Since that weekend the wins and podiums have been locked out by Kramer machinery, with Leon Jeacock now in the mix and in dominant form alongside his Austrian team-mate, while Jacque Foley has also enjoyed rostrum success since switching to the marque.

And this leaves Jinks keen to upset the applecart. “We’re excited and getting ready for the weekend and we’re all up for it,” he told UK Clubsport.

“We’ve made loads of changes to the 2018 bike. Although John won with it and beat the Kramer in two of the three races, the front end was way off. But we’ve rectified that now and all looks good.

“John loves Cadwell Park and he’s well up for beating his own lap record, weather permitting so hopefully the Kramers won’t be having it all their own way this time.”
