ENDURANCE Legends bosses have been forced to call off this year’s classic bike extravaganza at Donington Park after date shuffles caused a clash.
Last year’s four-hour scrap, a round of the European Endurance Legends Cup, was held on the second weekend of May – which event chiefs originally planned to keep.
But a move of the Circuit Paul Ricard’s Sunday Ride Classic to the same dates this year made a compromise an impossible task for Endurance Legends bosses Darin Frow and Rob Scott.
“After two exceptional events at Donington Park over 2017 and 2018, we’re extremely disappointed to announce that Endurance Legends will not take place in 2019,” they said.
“Since news that the Sunday Ride Classic had moved to our usual May weekend, we have worked tirelessly with MSV to find a date which fits the FIME Endurance Classic Cup – of which Endurance Legends has been one of the founding organisers – and which doesn’t clash with other major classic motorcycling events, but regrettably are now resigned to the fact that we have now exhausted all the possibilities.
“We would like to thank David Willey at MSV for everything he has done to try to make Endurance Legends 2019 a reality, but we will now work together to secure a date for 2020.”
