Established Thundersport GB competitor James Field, is set to move into roads action for the first time, next year.
A race winner at the Thundersport meeting at Rockingham this year in the opening British Military Inter Service challenge race, James is planning to make his roads debut in 2017, at the Spring Cup National Road Races at Oliver’s Mount.
Alongside the Spring Cup, competition at all meetings at Scarborough including the 67th Scarborough Gold Cup, is on the horizon.
Additional planned roads action next year, includes making his Southern 100 debut, as he makes his competitive bow around the hugely well liked and well respected, Billown roads circuit.
Machinery wise for his first roads campaign, sees James compete on his own teams ZX6R Kawasaki, which carries backing from the Royal Air Force.
Speaking about his upcoming pure road racing challenge, James said:
“I really can not wait for next season to start, I’ve always loved watching the pure road racing and I’m very excited at the prospect of taking on this new challenge.
It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, I’ll respect the roads, but will still give my best.”
