Darley champ Scranage set for NLR Endurance debut

In Endurance, News, No Limits

BEN Scranage is set to add another club to his checklist as he joins JDB Racing to take on No Limits Racing’s National Endurance series.

But the double Darley Moor Club champ isn’t ruling out his main focus – Thundersport GB’s flagship GP1 series – where he wants to grab more podiums and climb further up the order.

Scranage joins JDB in a four-rider line up to battle for NLR’s premier endurance crown, alongside Jez Gibbens, Dave Wymer and National Superstock 1000 regular Ben Godfrey.

And while he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to head back to Darley to defend his Open Solo and Peak Cup titles for the second year running, he’s happy to be expanding his repertoire.

“Thundersport and NLR will be my main focus, but I’d really like to get back to Darley if I can,” he told UK Clubsport. “I fund all my own racing so it will just depend on dollars during the season.

“But endurance racing is something I’ve wanted to do for a while now and I was just waiting for the right opportunity.

“I’m delighted to be joining JDB Racing and I’m looking forward to working with them and a successful 2019 race season.”
