FAMOUS RIDERS AT ENDURANCE LEGENDS
We're looking forward to welcoming another host of our racing heros at Endurance Legends 2018. Below are some of the famous faces we were honoured to have along to the first event held at Donington Park in May 2017.
Another famous racer who needs no introduction, Jamie Whitham did the bulk of his racing on a Suzuki, from RGV250s to GSX-R750Fs in the early days.
He’s a British champion and raced for the factory Suzuki team in World Superbikes on a GSX-R750. He also made appearances in Grand Prix and raced in World Supersport.
He's now back in the racing saddle aboard the Team Classic Suzuki Katana proudly wearing the No.7 in the 2017 Endurance Legends 4hr race.
Jamie will also be taking part in an interview and autograph session with his Team Classic Suzuki team mates over the weekend
The one and only Trevor Nation - best known for racing Suzuki and Norton machines throughout his career, Trevor joins us over the whole Endurance Lgends weekend and will be getting on track with his GSX-R750 - not racing this time, but sharing the tarmc with the track day riders and sharing his knowledge when he's back in the paddock.
"I'm looking forward to being a part of the Endurance Legends weekend at Donington - I'm not coming to race but I cant' wait to get the Gixxer out on track for a spin and no doubt tell a yarn or two in the bar! "
Multi world champion and one of America's greatest ever road racers, "Fast Freddie" Spencer is looking forward to attending Endurance Legends on Sunday 7th May.
Freddie will be riding a Two Brothers Honda RC30 in Sunday's race bike parade ahead of the 4hr endurance race, and taking part in an interview and autograph session in the Endurance Legends marquee, where he'll also be signing his new book "FEEL" .
Freddie will also be presenting the trophies to the 4hr endurance race winning teams on the stage in the Endurance Legends marquee immediately after the 4hr race ends at 7pm
Steve 'Stavros' Parrish - former Grand Prix racer and team mate to Barry Sheene on a Suzuki in the 1977 500cc world championship before becoming the 1978 500cc ACU 'Gold Star' Champion. He also won the Shell 500 title in both 1979 and 1980, and the British Superbike title in 1981.
After retiring from motorcycle racing in 1986, Parrish moved into truck racing career, winning numerous British and European titles before retiring in 2002 as the most successful truck racer ever!
Endurance Legends sees Steve back racing on 2 wheels as part of the celebrity rider line-up for Team Classic Suzuki.
MCN's senior road tester Michael Neeves is a seasoned club racer, winning races in a variety of championships on a range of bikes.
He’s also no stranger to classic racing either, racing a GSX-R1100 and a Katana at the Phillip Island Classic races earlier this year.
All of which stands him in good stead for being team mate to Jamie Whitham and Steve Parrish when they go up against the UK's and Europe's top endurance teams at Endurance Legends, Donington Park over 6/7 May.
