ThundersportGB is absolutely delighted to welcome Crowe Performance as Title Sponsor to the latest class to enhance the ThundersportGB GP1 Structure...

 

Under our 2018 rules, those riders were automatically classified as Thundersport GP1 Sportsman competitors, due to the three tier nature of that particular class structure.
 
This meant joining the fastest and most competitive big bike grid in the country outside of the British Superbikes. Many very experienced riders from the BSB paddock have come to race in the Thundersport GP1 Elite races and failed to get a sniff of the podium, such is the pace and quality of the field.
 
Clearly that is a big ask for any rider, but more so for a rider with very limited experience. Many riders who are in fact very competitive at other clubs find that jump to Thundersport GP1 Sportsman/Elite too intimidating to contemplate, so a rider with limited experience has every right to be a little nervous.
 
The structure we already have in place for our 600 classes is a four tier affair, which allows riders in that situation a breathing space between their first year of competition and then immediately being moved up to a much faster grid. Whilst that is a choice that some riders do opt for of their own free will, because they want to challenge themselves and become the best they can possibly be in the shortest space of time, it is not the only option.
 
Therefore we have decided to create a similar (although not exactly identical) structure in Thundersport GP1. Some riders with limited experience will now be classified as Thundersport GP1 Sport 1000 competitors and they (along with GP1 Freshman riders) will race alongside the GP1 Classic racers on a less intimidating grid.
 
This will greatly reduce the speed differentials on the GP1 Sportsman/Elite grid and should ensure that safety is greatly enhanced for all.
 
To put it in footballing terms the classes are like this:-
 
Thundersport GP1 Elite – Premier League
 
Thundersport GP1 Sportsman – Championship
 
Thundersport GP1 Sport – League One
 
Thundersport GP1 Freshman – League Two
 
Advanced Innovation in Action is always better than Subsequent Knee-Jerk Reaction in our experience.
 

Phil Crowe

  • Road Racer in Superbike and Superstock at the TT Isle of Man, Ulster GP, NW 200
  • BSB Superstock 1000 Racer
  • ThundersportGB GP1 Elite Racer - Champion (2010)

Phil has been around motorcycles since the age of two. Since that early age he has lived and breathed motorcycles both off-road and track/circuit racing. As it could not be in any other way given his passion for bikes he also made a living out of it. His latest venture in the motorcycle world has been to create Crowe Performance with the aim of providing a broad level of services to any kind of rider and for most type of motorcycles. That is why Crowe Performance has been set-up with such a wide range of capabilities when it comes to servicing motorcycles or selling motorcycle parts and accessories.

Phil Crowe has had many years competing at national and international level.

 

Crowe Performance - Contact Us!In the early years he was passionate about off-road riding and became a highly skilled off-road and motoX rider. Phil continues to ride off-road at a very high level to this day.

 

Later on during his mid 20s he turned his attention to competing on circuit racing and in 2010 he won the the coveted Thundersport GP1 title. In that same year he also took the New Era championship for 1000cc motorcycles.

In 2011, on the recently launched BMW S1000RR, once again took the New Era championship.

 

Since 2011 Phil has been a BMW Motorrad racer. The knowledge and experience that Phil acquired when it comes to BMW race bikes is extremely vast. To the point of having been called "Dr Crowe" in social media by some BMW bike owners and customers.

 

From 2012 onwards his goal was to compete at international level on, arguably, the most challenging motor racing events of all - motorcycle road racing. Phil went on to race at the Northwest 200 , Ulster GP, Isle of Man TT and Scarborough and he continues participating on most of these events now still.

 

The biggest test of them all is the Isle of Man TT where riders compete on a 37-mile long lap on closed public roads over 200 miles in distance including 2 pit stops for fuel and tyres. The races are almost 2 hours long and the top riders achieve 125mph + average speeds over each lap. Undoubtedly one of the toughest events for rider and machine.

 

Phil has earned many 'Bronze Replicas' over the years and in 2017 he managed a 'Silver Replica' finishing in the top 15 and achieving an outstanding average lap of 128 mph, one of only 25 people in history to achieve this. Top 15 is a remarkable achievement for a privateer racer considering how many full-time professional racers and factory teams participate in this and other road racing events.

 

The experience gained by Phil over the years both racing and preparing his own bikes and engines are the foundation for his recently established business - Crowe Performance. Customers will have the benefit of Phil unrivalled experience and knowledge.

 

For 2019 Phil will continue to compete in most of the main road racing events as well as competing in selected BSB Superstock 1000 races and in many races in his beloved Thundersport GP1 championship that time will allow.
