Diary date: Classic Endurance Legends race at Donington Park – May 6-7


We’re going to this excellent event and we figured we’d flag this up for you, so that you could whack it in the diary and make sure you’re trackside to see loads of pre-1987 bikes in three different classes (F1 Classic 750cc – 1300cc, F1 Superbike 750cc – 1300cc, Formula 2 247cc – 749cc)  a 4-Hour long race.
