The Miche­lin Thun­der­drome

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

There are some big and ex­cit­ing changes for next year’s Ca­role Nash MCN Lon­don Mo­tor­cy­cle Show and they don’t get much big­ger than the Miche­lin Thun­der­drome.

For the past four years our celebri­ty­packed, live ac­tion show has been thrilling show­go­ers with ex­cit­ing wheel-to-wheel and el­bow-to-el­bow rac­ing. For 2018 we’re tak­ing the ac­tion up a cou­ple of notches by in­tro­duc­ing the Miche­lin Thun­der­drome, a live ac­tion show like you’ve never seen be­fore.

In­spired by the spec­tac­u­lar all-wooden board­track race cir­cuits of the early 1900s, Thun­der­drome fea­tures ter­ri­fy­ingly steep wooden bank­ing en­abling rid­ers to sling­shot high around the turn and take the bend at breath­tak­ing speed. The op­po­site end of the course is kept flat, let­ting the rid­ers back their ma­chines into the turn and then pow­er­slide out, locking han­dle­bars as they go. The re­sult will be some breath­tak­ing rac­ing and some­thing that has to be seen to be be­lieved!

World Su­per­bike stars Chris Walker, Neil Hodg­son and the mas­ter of side­ways ac­tion Ruben Xaus will be the first rid­ers to take on the Miche­lin Thun­der­drome plus a spe­cial guest to be an­nounced later this month.
