Classic endurance racing has been hugely popular on mainland Europe for years, with increasingly slick and polished teams contesting a championship series that aims to recreate the glory days of the sport. Now, following a successful debut at Snetterton in 2015, the UK seems to have developed a taste for classic-era endurance racing too and for the last two years a meeting has been held at Donington Park.
Building on the success of previous meetings, this year’s Endurance Legends event is set to be the best yet. In addition to the main event – a four-hour endurance race with four classes catering for 1968-86 machines – there are also GP Originals races for 250 and 350 GP bikes from the ’70s and ’80s, plus a round of the Lansdowne series for 350 and 500 GP bikes raced up to the end of 1963. Throw in track sessions for pre-’95 bikes, club displays and trade stands and a host of racing celebrities from the good old days and you have a weekend not to be missed for classic race fans.
