FORMULA Prostocks Racing has been bounding from strength to strength in its last two season, and big things are on the horizon for the club’s 2018 campaign.
In addition to the FP1 Pre 87′ Post Classics and the FP2 Suzuki Bandit Challenge, series boss Keith Chambers has recently announced the Classic Superbike Series is set to invade FPR programmes next season.
With grids nearing or at capacity in every round this year, the 2016 champion and mind behind the challenge has been looking for a way to expand the organisation without compromising the already-established categories.
“We are very pleased with the way the Black Widow Exhausts Bandit Challenge has gone so far,” Chambers told UK Clubsport. “The interest in the series is ever increasing and we already have a good number of new members building Bandits for next season.”
“I started to think along the lines of expanding on our Properly Protected Insurance Post Classic series, with so many people approaching us to ask if they can race this bike or that bike with FPR and unfortunately not yet having a place for them until now.”
The club’s brand new class will accommodate Pre-1994 750cc four-cylinders and 1000cc twin-cylinders.
“I thought that it would be great to create a series for the bikes that raced in the early to mid 90s BSB and World Superbikes. As with any ageing model, some of the eligible machinery is getting rather expensive, but you can still pick up the likes of a ZXR750 or YZF750 for a very reasonable price.”
