Notorious for helping bring on pure road racing’s stars of tomorrow, the Peoples Bike Team are following a similar path in 2024, having recently revealed a deal with relative racing newcomer, Grant Thomson.
Thomson, this year’s Jurby Airfield Clubman Champion, is set for his road’s scene bow next year at the ‘Friendly Races’, the Southern 100.
His Peoples Bike tie-up also ensures future Mountain Course participation, with the Douglas rider Manx GP bound in 2025, as a ‘Rising Star’ for his new suitors.
Speaking recently via the Peoples Bike Team’s Facebook page, the ambitious pilot stated:
“One of my biggest achievements this year has been to go from novice licence to clubman licence to my national licence in the space of this year by doing as many local and UK races to collect my signatures.
For 2024 my focus is to continue the same approach as last year for races both on the Isle of Man & in the UK with the addition of the Southern 100 as a newcomer.
These opportunities don’t come along very often and I’m very grateful for it, I can’t thank The People’s Bike enough for giving me this chance. Let’s see what we can do together in 2024.”
