|Jack has loved motorbikes from a young age, starting out on a minimoto, progressing from fun days out doing motocross and a little club competition to, eventually, persuading his dad to give him a shot at road racing with ThundersportGB in 2014. He has always performed well in his physical endeavours, practising martial arts for many years and progressing through local competition to nationals before getting selected and competing as part of the ITF England Taekwon-Do team in 2 European and one World championships. This seems to have prepared him well for dealing with, and rising to, the challenges of competition. Jack achieved his first win at Donington on the 11th April 2015 and finished on the podium in all 4 races over the weekend! Check out his blog for more info about every round at: www.jacktynan.com. Jack holds the lap record for the 500 class at Snetterton and was 2nd overall in the championship in June before a broken leg ruled him out for rounds 5 & 6 and then a broken collar bone in September ruled Jack out of the last 8 races of the season – he still placed 7th overall for the year!
2016 – Racing in the Thundersport GB Aprilia Challenge – The list of riders who began their Road Racing careers in the Aprilia Superteen Challenge is a veritable who’s who of modern racing, starting with Casey Stoner, Cal Crutchlow, Bradley Smith, Leon Camier, Danny Webb, Tommy Hill, Danny Kent, James Ellison, Sam Lowes, Alex Lowes, Steve Brogan and a host of other National and International riders who all launched successful careers in this superb series.
The season started with tricky (cold) conditions at Brands Hatch at the beginning of March and learning to race on the Aprilia RRV450 for the first time, lessons were learned and progress made. At the next round at Donington (last weekend) Jack placed 9th and 8th on the first day and then he started to get comfortable on the new bike… on the second day, Jack placed 4th in both races narrowly missing a podium place in only his second weekend on the new Aprilia. Jack is currently placed 10th in the championship. Bring on Snetterton – first weekend of May
