Stephen Thompson is teaming up with Michael Rutter as part of the Bathams BMW team for TT 2014. For this years Isle of Man TT both Stephen and Michael are competing on S1000RR BMW’s in superbike and senior TT races.

The team will also be competing at the North West 200 where Michael Rutter will be looking for wins to add to his already remarkable tally of 12 North West 200 wins. But the highlight of the season for the team is set to be TT 2014 and Stephen Thompson is greatly looking forward to the superbike, superstock and senior TT races, having lapped at over 125 mph at TT 2013 the rider known as Kong to many has every chance of a personal best lap time this year.
