A total of 59 teams have been entered so far.
The vast majority (forty eight) of these teams are French, with just one from Germany (MGM Racing Performance), one from Switzerland (Bolliger Classic Endurance), one from Italy (Europeanisteam) two from Britain (Team Parts Europe, Forth V4)), two from the Netherlands (Motoport Uithoorn, Holland Motorsports) and four from Belgium (Ride 4 Fun, Z Racing Endurance, Dholda Racing and Red Cheshire). Notably absent are most of the teams leading the European Classic Series, although this is only a provisional list.
Most of the entries are in the Post Classic class, which encompasses Suzuki GSX-R750s, Kawasaki ZXR750s, Yamaha FZR1000s and RC30 Hondas. The Classic class includes Kawasaki Z1000s, Honda 1100Rs, Moto Martin Kawasakis, a Bimota DB4.Ducati are represented by 916, 851 and 750 twins and the oddities we all love include a Yamaha XS1100 and a Kwasaki ZZR1100.
There's a team comprising two women (Patricia Audbert and Karine Suz on a Kawasaki 1100), at least two teams of two brothers (Jean-Piere and Benjamin Kapowski on the Team3K Moto Martin Kawasaki and Jean-Philippe and Vincent Garcia on the Family Team Moto Martin Honda) and some names that are familiar from the World Endurance circuit of a few years ago (Bruno Le Bihan and Matthieu Lagrive on the Belgium Team Force Harris Suzuki).
The Bol d'Or Classic takes place as part of the Bol d'Or weekend, on the 15/16/17 September.
