Running with a stock motor wasnt he? And no leathers deal. totally deserved.
Lets hope he gets a good ride for 2013 to continue his form.

And IMO the most improved rider of of the year. He resisted the temptation to push beyond the bikes limits and thus avoiding end up with DNFs.

What a pity that the corporate suits in Germany arent rewarding the huge financial commitment by Danilo Soncini by stumping up some support to keep Supersonic and Bridewell racing in 2013.

Bless Tommy, he's posted on FB thanking people for voting for him. Always wears his heart on his sleeve and gives a 100%. Cut out the silly errors from previous years too which has made him a much more complete rider.
What's not to like about him? (Sure someone on here will find something, hope not though)
Well done TB :)

A complete revelation and to do it with a team new to BSB and BMWs is even more remarkable.

Completely rewritten his previous reputation as a crasher, as he was by far the most consistent rider of the year as well has having great pace and racecraft to come through from mid-pack during races. Much more mature performance than we've seen in previous years.

Hope the money men come through for the team or someone else picks him up - now he DOES deserve that top ride often mentioned.

Well done Tommy.
