European Classic Series 2017

The domestic racing season may be at an end, but there are still a handful of British teams in action this weekend as the European Classic Series comes to a close at Aragon in Spain.

Team Taurus currently lead the Maxi Classic class, although defending champions Neate Racing and the ever present Sweatshop Phase One are both hot on their heels with just 8 points separating the top three.

Phase One will once again be fielding two bikes as they make an all-out assault on the championship, with Mike Dickinson and Hugh Brasher paired together on the first P&M Suzuki. Peter Linden and Dalbeattie Destroyer Ian Simpson will be on the second.

Both bikes have been refreshed by Russell Benney and his close knit crew, with new rings, cylinders, and wheel bearings on a long list of pre-race maintenance.

Anyone following the weekend’s action will almost certainly spot the familiar face of Guy Martin, who is riding alongside Pete Boast and Michael Neeves with Team Classic Suzuki on their Katana 1100, backed by the manufacturer’s Vintage Parts programme.

Alongside Taurus, Team Force of Belgium pose a serious threat to the UK squads, with the super-quick duo of Grégory Fastré and Bruno Le Bihan keen to end the season on a high note after some bad luck this year. Other teams from the UK include Alf’s Kawasaki and SCERT, who welcome Bob Collins back to the squad once again after he joined them at Spa earlier this year.

The majority of the top teams will once again be using our ContiRoadAttack 2 CR classic race tyres, which have been used by the championship winning bikes for several consecutive seasons.
