Oschersleben 4 Hour classic 2016 Phase One

Next week the Phase One team will be in Germany for the Oschersleben 4 Hour Classic Endurance, with riders Ian Simpson and Peter Lindén back together on the team’s P&M Suzuki.

The race will be one of the feature events during German Speedweek, and is a firm favourite for the British team who won the World Championship 24 Hour race at the circuit back in 2001.

Peter was one of the three man rider line-up to win that epic race alongside his then teammates Igor Jerman and Olivier Ullman.

Oschersleben is located around 20 miles from Magdeburg, and is well known for being a smooth, fast circuit thanks to it’s relatively flat contours. The fastest point of the 2.292 mile circuit is the end of the finish straight, which goes into a sharp 90-degree left which has been the undoing of many rider in the past.

Last month Phase One, backed by Continental, reclaimed the top spot in the FIM European Classic Endurance Series after a strong performance at the Spa Classic in Belgium, and both riders will be hoping to continue their strong form, as will team principal Russell Benney watching from the pit wall.
