As an official sponsor of Endurance Legends, we are delighted to be able to announce that the UK’s only classic 4-hour endurance race will be back next year.
Last year’s event went down extremely well and with that in mind Rob and Darin, the team behind Classic Bike Trackdays, have confirmed a deal with the superb Donington Park circuit to host the event in May 2017, with exact dates to be confirmed this summer.
Along with the main event which will see team SCERT attempt to reclaim their F1 Superbike title, there will also be an opportunity for riders to get out on track on pre-1995 machines, or newer machines that fit into the spirit of the event. These sessions will be divided into groups including Superbike, Middleweight and Novice.
The race itself is open to any pre-1987 machines running across two classes with the typical Le Mans style start:
- F1 Superbike: 750cc – 1300cc
- F2 Sportsbike: 247cc – 749cc
With multiple titles to our name, Continental are the undisputed kings of the 4-hour classic motorcycle endurance race – with the likes of reigning European Classic Bike Series champions Sweatshop Phase One using our ContiRoadAttack 2 CR classic race radials along with several of the other front runners.
Although still the early stages of planning, the organisers have already reported an extremely positive response and are committed to creating one of the UK’s premier classic motorcycling events, something echoed by Donington Park’s Sporting Director Bob Adams;
“We are really excited to welcome Endurance Legends to Donington Park in 2017, this event will expand our already busy portfolio of motorcycle racing. Rob and Darin did a great job with their first event and we want to help them make next year’s meeting even more successful”
Endurance Legends co-organiser Darin Frow said “The feedback we had from the first Endurance Legends weekend was nothing short of amazing, so when Bob (Adams) gave us the opportunity to hold Endurance Legends at Donington Park we jumped at it. It’s very early days but there’s already a lot in the pipeline and Suzuki GB and Continental Motorcycle Tyres have already pledged their support again! There’s a great deal of exciting news to come, so keep an eye on the website and our Facebook page for updates – one thing’s for sure; it’s going to be a spectacular and very memorable classic bike weekend!”
Entries for the event are already open, and more information can be found on the Endurance Legends website.
We look forward to bringing you more information as it is announced!
