From Farm Factory to Flying with Factory Wings - Tom Neave

From Farm Factory to Flying with Factory Wings - Tom Neave

Before we start, let us shed some light on our title.  The reference to ‘flying’ and to ‘wings’ above is not related to Tom’s spectacular crash at Brands Hatch two weeks ago in which he managed to send his Superstock 1000 bike flying.  As thousands of people saw on online – the video went viral - Tom not only propelled his bike into record heights but, in doing so, he also managed to make it perform a stylish choreographic display 20ft up in the air.   We said it before and we say it again now, Tom is a man of many talents.

The wings we are referring to are, of course, the iconic Honda wings.  We want to congratulate our friend Tom Neave on his recent and well-deserved invitation to race a factory Honda Superbike while Honda factory rider, Dan Linfoot, recovers from an injury.  Unsurprisingly, Tom has impressed everyone with his latest performances on track and clearly the big teams noticed.  A well-deserved invitation no doubt.  
 
Great move by Honda also in selecting a young up-and-coming rider and giving him such an opportunity.   Regardless of results, a chance like this is invaluable to any racer early in their career.  We believe also that this kind of actions by a top team like Honda are a boost to racing in general.  It gives young riders hope and encourages new generations of racers.  Hats off to Honda Racing on all fronts!
 
Under Honda’s wings, Tom will be racing a full spec Factory Superbike for the very first time.  Ideally he would like to test the bike a few times before Thruxton BSB race meeting this coming weekend but, as it is usually the case, time is precious.  He will have to be content with just a couple of track days and then “get on with it’. 
 
The team at Crowe Performance - in particular Phil and Adam (Marsh) who are part of Tom’s inner circle - wish Tom and the Honda team a very successful time together.
