Shane Turpin on the 848 at Cadwell

Wed, 22 Aug 2012

AMA rider and World Superbike wildcard, Shane 'Tornado' Turpin will be riding the 848 Challenge VIP bike this weekend at Cadwell Park.

Turpin is an experienced AMA rider and raced as a wildcard at this year’s World Superbike event at Miller Motorsports Park on board a Boulder Motor Sports prepared 1198RS.

Asked about the opportunity, Turpin said, “I’m really excited to have this opportunity to race in Europe in the 848 Challenge race and am honored that Ducati UK, JHP Performance, Boulder Motor Sports and my personal sponsors have given me this great opportunity. I’ve raced one other time in Europe back in 2002 in the FIM 24-hour of LeMans with Yamaha Motor France and have always wanted to race again over there. I know that Cadwell Park is a technical track, but with the support of JHP and my team from Boulder Motor Sports I look forward to getting on the circuit and mixing it up with the series regulars.”

So with this being his first time at Cadwell and with only a trackday to prepare, how's he going to get on?
