Spain Classic Raid 2018 – now open to classic motorcycles

Now’s your chance to cover over 2,000 km of Spain’s dirt roads – as the Spain Classic Raid 2018 has opened its doors to classic motorcycles for its fifth running, which takes place from October 20-27.

If you’ve not heard of it before, that’s because until now the Spain Classic Raid has been exclusively for classic cars – but now, it’s opening the event up to motorcycles, allowing riders a rare opportunity to race across innumerable dirt roads of Spain.

You’ll depart from Barcelona (Muelle de La Marina, Puerto Olímpico) and will pass through Zaragoza, Soria, Ávila, Mérida, Córdoba, Ciudad Real and Madrid while racing across more than 2,000 kilometers of dirt roads, divided into eight individual stages over eight days – testing their skills of navigation, riding (or driving) and resilience, in addition to the quality of their machines.

And if you’re looking for a ride, check out the inimitable Yamaha XT600Z Tenere on our MoreBikesForSale Classifieds section. We reckon it’d be spot on for the Spain Classic Raid.
