A true tidal wave of registrations has hit the European Classic Series! For the second round of the Bikers’ Classics to be held at Spa-Francorchamps on 5th July, masses of registrations have arrived from all corners of Europe.
Notwithstanding the fact that this Belgian Ardennes circuit can welcome a large number of teams, only very few places remain available and the latecomers will only have themselves to blame if they cannot compete in this major endurance party. Looking at the teams already registered it definitely will be a great party on Saturday at 20.00hrs, when Alain Genoud, former world champion of the speciality will give the start for what will be an intense 4 hours battle and will, as per usual be full of twists and surprises. It would be stupid not be a part of it!
Winner of the first round of the championship at Le Castellet, Richard Hubin and Grégory Fastré logically come out as the favourites on home ground. The two Belgians know the circuit like the back of their hand and from the outset will impose a hellish pace.
However, as they proved in the south of France where they kept up an unbelievable suspense right through to the chequered flag, the Kawasaki of Linden/Conroy and Banfield/Godfrey are fully determined on taking revenge. They will not be the only ones out to claim a place on the podium seeing the Suzuki of Cantalupo/Sardi and the Kawasaki of Haquin/De Dieuleveult, who were lapping in the same times as the leaders, hope, like many others to climb up in the hierarchy. All the same, the top places will be expensive to come by at the end of these 4 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps that promises to be quite simply exceptional.
