Ice Valley Honda – 2008

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

“After qualifying and getting caught up at druids on the first lap I worked as hard as the bike would let me to get a result. The rear link helped edge grip but I was still struggling for grip. Although sixth doesn’t reflect what we’re capable of, I did what I could with what I have today and I’m happy that I rode well”
The results saw Tom getting pipped for third place in the 2008 British Superbike Cup Championship by experinced superbike rider Gary Mason.
“The Cup Championship stepped up a level this year with some big teams and experienced riders joining the grid. That combined with the new supersport engine rules which seemed to hit us more than most meant it’s been a tough year.

But the whole team has worked exceptionally hard from the first round to the last to get the results and podiums, I owe them all a massive thank you.
Of course without the loyal help and backing from Hardinge Machine Tools, Ice Valley Mineral Water, and all our supporters without whom none of it would have been possible and I’m indebted to them for their belief in myself and the team”

Tom Tunstall was still searching for an improved set-up on the teams Honda CBR1000RR Tunstall started the first of the day’s 30lap outings with a revised front fork setting. However it wasn’t enough, having lost time at the start he wasn’t able to catch the cup riders ahead and finished race one in seventh position.
