Team Suzuki GB rider Dan Thornhill, has been crowned the Senior class winner at the BSMA finals at the weekend, held at Little Silver, near Exeter.
Following last weekends success aboard the Suzuki RM-Z250 machine, things were slightly different this weekend with Thornhill contesting the final round on the two-stroke RM125. With the Senior class heavily dominated by 250cc four-strokes, and little time to adjust to the different power delivery from the RM125, Thornhill would fight hard following mid pack starts, pushing through to convincingly take a hat-trick of wins on the Saturday.
Sunday and again a mid pack start in the first race of the day, before taking the lead and pulling ahead to take the win. With a bike set-up change for the final moto, Thornhill took the holeshot and confidently lead the race to take the win, the overall and the championship title.
Team manager Paul Butler commented, What an amazing weekend, not only did Dan win, but to win on a 125cc and to win every race just goes to show how good the two-strokes are, and of course what a strong and adaptable rider Dan is. Another championship under his belt, another great young talent.
