2015 Season Results

TW Suspension Tech has supported a number of riders during the 2015 season with their suspension tuning and set up to enable them to achieve their best.  Now the season has come to an end we are really proud to announce some excellent results:

Motorcycle suspension set up specialists, suspension tuning, shock rebuilds and race support JDL Racing Team

Joe Lawrence of JDL Racing reports on his sucesses in his first year at Pre-National 600. It's a real pleasure working with Joe and and the JDL Racing team. We are really looking forward to the 2016 season. 


"This year we competed in the Pre-National 600 Championship with Thundersport GB racing on National circuits around the UK. This was my first time racing on the big circuits and we had to learn each track on the race weekend. However we managed to finish the season in 11th position overall with 13 top 10 finishes and a best place finish of 6th. 


This was a big learning curve for JDL Racing, as we had to pretty much learn every circuit on the race weekend and then race to our best abilities on a bike that is not as competitive as a lot of the bikes on the grid.  We learned how to work as a team in a professional paddock with limited funds which was a fantastic experience and a dream come true for me.  We had to miss one round at Snetterton due to funding but we managed to attend every other round.


Teut at TW Suspension-Tech made sure that not only our bike was set up at each circuit this year but he has played a huge part in making sure I was ready mentally for each practice, qualifying and race.

Thanks for a mega first season!!

We are over the moon to be continuing our racing with TW Suspension-Tech through to 2016 and lets hope its another successful one!! "If in doubt...Flat out!"

Joe Lawrence #888 Reports on Round 1- Brands Hatch 6th-8th March 2015

Well it was Round 1 of Thundersport GB and we were blessed with great weather at Brands Hatch!


I will be visiting a lot of tracks that I have never seen this year, and Brands Hatch is one of them.  We got there Friday for some afternoon testing and the first session I was surprised how technical the track was, even though it is very short (the Indy circuit), the undulations, long sweeping and tight corners were tough to get used to.  However after a few sessions I found my feet and managed to get into a rhythm.  It was the first time I had managed to fully test the new suspension setup by TW Suspension Tech and I was amazed how well the bike handled, a massive improvement from last year!


After testing on Friday we decided it was going to be more beneficial to run new tyres for the race weekend in order for us to be competitive rather than running used worn tyres.


Saturday morning came and it was time to go qualifying on the new tyres.  I had never raced on new tyres before and what a difference it made!  The Continental race tyre was awesome, providing a lot more grip and great feedback, which by the end of the session saw me qualify 27th out of 44 riders with a time of 54.648s.  I knew there was room for improvement, but I was very happy to actually qualify for the races.


Race 1


I managed to get a good start off the line and straight away slotted myself mid pack.  With the new tyres working well I managed to chase down the rider in front but unfortunately we ran out of laps and couldn’t get by.  We finished the race in 22nd position and improved my lap time to a 52.984s from 54.648s, a massive improvement on the qualifying times in the morning, and I was starting to really enjoy Brands Indy circuit.


Race 2


Again I got a good start off the line and managed to get into 22nd place, this race was great with a lot of battling throughout.  On the last few laps I managed to catch the 20th place rider but then was passed by the rider behind…I wasn’t best pleased so with 2 laps to go I got my position back and then immediately got into 20th place, we swapped positions 4 times in 2 laps, even though it was tough I was grinning ear to ear inside my lid J, but by the chequered flag I held off the other riders to claim 20th place, with a fastest lap of 52.722s, just marginally slower than the first race.


Sunday - Race 3


On the second race day, for qualifying they take the quickest times from the Saturday and then put you on the grid accordingly, this meant that I had moved up from 27th to 24th on the grid.  The weather was again awesome, warm, sunny and dry.  I got another good start and managed to again get mid pack.  I was keeping up with the pack in front until I made a mistake in the early laps, running wide through the left hander “Surtees” resulting in me running onto the kerbs on the exit,  which allowed my mate Adam Gittings through on the last corner, however I got a great drive onto the start finish straight and got back past Adam and then got my head down for the rest of the race.  We didn’t see anyone else for the rest of the race and we came home in 23rd but again we improved on my fastest lap time and got a 52.172s!


Race 4


For the last race of the day the temperature had cooled down and the clouds had come over, we were praying for it to stay dry and luckily it did.  I got a great start off the line and managed to get myself in with the middle pack.  I was on the tail of the group for the first part of the race however I hit a false neutral coming out of the last corner which meant they gapped me by a few seconds, leaving me to race on my own trying to catch them down for the rest of the race.  By the end of the race we came home in 18th, just outside of the points.  I was over the moon, my goal was to get in the teens and to get 18th in our first race at Brands against the quality of riders around me was great!


We are now looking forward to Donington Park Round 2 on 10/11/12th April.  Again we will be looking to run new tyres if funds allow and luckily we have raced there before so fingers crossed we are looking to improve on last years times and positions J


Thanks again for all of your support for 2015, it wouldn’t be possible without your help!

Motorcycle Suspension Set Up, Motorcycle Shock rebuilds, Motorcycle Suspension Tuning Anthony Vanlooy- NGRRC F400 Racing

Anthony Vanlooy Reports on his sucess in the F400 Races at Castle Combe with NGRRC - 14/15/June 2014


It was baking hot conditions this weekend at Castle Combe for the NGRRC F400 races, Saturdays racing resulted in a 3rd place for the qualifier and a 2nd place for the championship race that day whilst managing to break the lap record held by the local man Simon Gates, but I was unable to chase him down in time, good result though on old tyres.

Sundays racing saw even warmer conditions, after a new set of freshly scrubbed tyres we managed a 2nd place in the qualifier, placing me on the front row.  The bike has been handling fantastic all weekend, having no trouble whatsoever with the fast bumpy conditions of the track and I knew that if I got a good start we should be able to win the championship race that day.
After a good start, I managed to keep with Simon Gates and on lap 3 I to got the tow I needed through the fast 'folly' section and out-braked him into 'Quarry' . This gave me the lead I needed and keeping my head down for the remaining 5 laps I managed to keep him at bay, breaking the lap record 3 times overall and setting a new club class lap record at Castle Combe.
I'm over the moon with the results this weekend, not bad considering I've only ridden the track once before a few years back.
My thanks to Teut of TW Suspension Tech for an excellent suspension rebuild and set-up, the bike handled faultlessly all weekend and was totally confidence inspiring, we really pushed the job, and bring on the next meeting!

Simon Aspin #139 racing in the CBR600 Steel Frame Championship with PDMCC reports on his success following a 2 1/2 year break from racing. Sunday 8/6/14


TW Suspension Tech fully tuned and set up Simon's bike prior to his return to racing.


Simon Reports


"On my second race meeting with PDMCC in 2 1/2 years the weather was great being very warm and dry.  I was pushing the bike harder and found that the rear was moving around a bit in the hot conditions.  Luckily Teut was on hand at the circuit that day and with a minor tweak to my settings, off I went again.


My lap times came down immediately and the bike felt great, helping me to finish 2nd and then 3rd.  It came down to the last race ( Steel Frame 600) with a fantastic start I had the 2010/ 2013 Steel Frame Champion hot on my tail trying to catch me, I managed to lead the race right through to finish. My rivel crashed out on the last bend to the start staight finsh line and I finished "1st Place" with a 13 Second lead.


I am now leading the Steel Frame Championship and am so pleased.


Thanks Teut @ TW Suspension Tech


Great Job!!


Simon Aspin
