So… 2-strokes are dead?
Errr, we don't think so...
Want to start your 12-18yr old youngun racing?
But not got the budget of Repsol Honda?
Then this is STILL the best place to be... AND
STILL the most successful one make series in the world!
You can pick up a pre-used full race package for just £2,000! and it's dead easy to get started...
It worked for: Cal Crutchlow, Casey Stoner, The Lowes twins (featured), Leon Camier, Tom Sykes Steve Brogan & Chaz Davies (to mention but a few of the many stars that all started in Aprilia Superteens) & although they no longer make the RS125, there are LOADS of them out there to be snapped up cheaply.
The little 125cc Rotax engine utilised in the RS125 is widely used in karting, so spares/repairs are still real easy to source & unlike 4-strokes that have to take an expensive trip to the engine tuners for repairs/refreshment, you can strip the cylinder head, barrel and piston off yourself & replace all three if you want in under 20 minutes ... AND there’s full back-up in the shape of an Aprilia truck provided by series co-ordinator of over 20yrs Ian Newton at every round!
The youth development academy at ThundersportGB also provides one on one on track training & mentoring courtesy of BGF’s Ex British Superbike Evo Champion Steve Brogan at every pre-event test day completely free of charge.
There’s full TV coverage from every event screened at prime viewing times on FreeviewHD terrestrial & Sky satellite channels (GP Racing Dream), which is subsequently loaded to the Aprilia & ThundersportGB i-players to be enjoyed forever!

This is a well proven successful strategy step by step path to get racing careers on track, forget the green lobby’s take that 2-strokes are bad for the environment, with China building & commissioning a new coal fired power station every week, I personally don’t believe that a grid of RS125 Superteen bikes is likely to be responsible for wrecking the planet anytime soon! AND this route it’s really easy & inexpensive to get on this side of the fence...

Yes if you start making enquiries in other areas, of course there will soon be plenty of people willing to put their arm around you and say: “Gimme 10-20-30 or 40 Grand of your money & we’ll turn your kid into a racing star (& to be honest in the future when little Tommy says “Yes I really like this Dad!”, that might be another option to explore), but why would you do that FIRST at the outset when it’s all already in place right here at a tiny fraction of the cost?
Each round offers a proper official test day, a qualifying session & 4 lengthy races at all the major circuits around the UK (Brands Hatch, Donington Park National, Snetterton, Cadwell Park, Oulton Park, Rockingham International Speedway, Anglesey, Donington Park GP), what's not to like? If it aint broke, don't fix it!
GP Racing Dream? YES IT IS!!!
