I'm looking forward to seeing Tommy riding this weekend as much as the other brits, I hope he is a giant slayer and I wish him the best of luck, he is an excellent example of all that is good in British racing at the moment. Good Luck Tommy fingers crossed for a top ten finish.

It will be one hell of a task for Tommy to score points at Silverstone...
Currently he is outside the top 10 in BSB with guys like Chris Walker infront of him.

Based on his current form I really can't see him finishing in the top 15, maybe not even the top 20?

All the wsbk regulars plus wild cards in the shape of Brooks etc... on far better bikes.
Good luck to the kid (he's had a terrible few years) but I really can't see him getting points.

Still, racing is about experience and enjoyment for riders & fans alike.
In a field of 30 not everyone will score points, but doesn't mean they don't deserve to be thre.

Ditto, no matter how good the field someone will always come last.

Great news as this team needs some support

I was walking through the posh transporters and trucks at Snetterton when I came across a hand painted old truck which had no logos on or anything - guess who it belonged too? These guys really are out the the back of a transit style and deserve some backing.

By the way that bike is older than that - it was second hand when Greg was riding it

why is this guy on the grid,back of transit or not,the top 6 in bsb should be the ones to get wildcards,this kid is just going to ride above his limits and crash some more

to the person who calls themself god, bike racing used to be about the racing not how big your motorhome is or how nice the food in hospitality is. I remember not so long ago in gps and wsb you could rock up and race without all the corporate crap, it is a sad day when the main criteria for entry according to you is how much money a rider has, might as well start watching car racing.

@taffy I agree with you, Tommy's wild card entry is very much what racing should be all about. He is experienced and fast and is being given an opportunity to show what he can do. A top 10 finish for him in this field would be as good as a win for Max and I reckon he can do it.

Out on a limb here....Tommy will not finish last and may scrape a point with at least the Pedercini bikes and Echo Honda behind him. That's provided he stays on and the bike stays together. Good racer is Tommy, just needs the right oppertunities and a slightly cooler head at times.

who the hell do somepeople think there are to put rubbish comments down, fair play to Tommy to take this up. he might not finish first but he won"t be last, people need to give him a break.
fair play to tyco for the backing!!!! and to the person who hides behind the name GOD why should"nt he be on the grid, wildcards are not just handed out to anybody, the team applys for it!!
Rock on Tommy!!!! :)
