Teenage racer Ryan Vickers has been getting up to speed for the new season with a track day at Snetterton.

The 17-year-old Thetford rider hit speeds of 180mph on a Suzuki GSXR 1000, a more powerful bike than the Honda CB500 he races for Satchwell Racing in the Thundersport GB Championship. The first round was at Brands Hatch earlier this month, with Vickers qualifying 17th and finishing the first Crank Racing Thunderport 500 race in 14th, the second race in 13th and the third in ninth.

Vickers is looking for sponsors for the new season, with livery space available on his race bikes. Get in touch with Vickers via his Facebook page ‘Ryan Vickers #321’.
