Paul Ricard is the first round of a four race European series for classic bikes up to 1986. The races are at Paul Ricard, Oschersleben in June, Spa in July and Misano in October. Then there is the big race of the year, the Classic Bol in September.
Peter Linden , Hugh Brasher and new boy, Jari Tuovinen all fly south on Thursday to try the Mk2 version of the team’s XR69 Suzuki at Paul Ricard. Since testing, extensive improvements have been made, mostly in detail but also with weight distribution, having found the bike a little front weight biased. All up weight for qualifying is a satisfying 169.5 kgs.
Thanks to all our sponsors for making it happen.
The new bike is a credit to the team, lets hope it goes as well as it looks.! See you down there.! RB
Peter Linden will also be contesting round two of the ICGP series, in which he lies second at the moment, on the team’s Bill Simpson TZ350s. Good luck to Peter.
The two ICGP races are on Saturday and Sunday.
