Endurance Legends Confirm Donington Date

Posted: 15th September 2016

UK Classic Endurance race and trackday scheduled for 6-7 May 2017 at Donington Park...

This just in from Endurance Legends:

It’s official! Endurance Legends will thunder into action at the world famous Donington Park over the weekend of 6-7 May 2017.

Excitement for the event which hosts the UK’s only 4hour classic endurance race has been building rapidly since details were released in April, but in addition to releasing the official date, the organisers are thrilled to be able to confirm more high profile racing to pack the adrenaline-filled weekend schedule.

Recreating the sight, sounds and spirit of racing in the 1950’s and early 1960’s, the Lansdowne Classic Series will fill the ex-Grand Prix circuit with an historic mix of Manx Nortons, Matchless G50s, AJS 7Rs and more.

Richard Adams from The Lansdowne said, “The Lansdowne Classic Series is thrilled to be invited to join Endurance Legends for their weekend of exciting racing at the iconic Donington Park – always a favourite with riders and spectators alike. The Lansdowne guarantees a spectacle of big singles from the 1950’s and early 60’s putting on a show of very competitive racing as you would have seen in period. Sounds like a race meeting with a difference – not to be missed!”

Of course Endurance Legends wouldn’t be complete without the noise of screaming 2-strokes, so being able to welcome the ICGP (International Classic Grand Prix) with an enviable grid of genuine ex-GP race bikes is a dream come true.

Eric Saul, ICGP President, commented, “ICGP is very happy to race at Donington Park during the Endurance Legends weekend next year, as an official FIM Europe Cup this circuit is part of the Grand Prix history and we can’t wait to bring back the sounds of 2 strokes again!”

Add to this a heady mix of celebrity riders, interviews and autographs sessions, classic bike track sessions and special Anniversary parades, classic club and trade displays, live action on the Melbourne Loop and live music on the Saturday evening – Endurance Legends is gearing up to be a truly spectacular weekend of classic motorcycling.
