En­dur­ing leg­ends

Classic Bike (UK) - - WHAT’S ON 2018 -

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.

Clas­sic en­durance rac­ing at­tracts star names now. That’s Neevesy from MCN in the woolly hat... Adit, sun­tias simil ip­sum es­tia sitam faceate­seris di­a­tior A great week­end for clas­sic race fans with a wide va­ri­ety of ma­chin­ery
