FPR Battle of the Twins set for launch

In Formula Prostocks, News

FORMULA Prostocks Racing is gearing up to welcome a new class to its ranks next weekend as chiefs prepare for the launch of the 2020 season.

Running alongside NG Road Racing at Cadwell Park, the club’s new FP2 Pre-2006 Battle of the Twins category is already looking like like it could be a flyer.

Bolstering its FP1 (pre-’81), FP3 (pre-’95) and hugely-popular Suzuki Bandit Challenge class, the two-cylinder championship is poised to give riders a chance to relive some of those early-naughties World SBK battles.

Eligible bikes include the Aprillia RSV1000, RSV Factory, Ducati 748, 749, 916/996/998, 999, Honda VTR1000F Firestorm, VTR SP1/2, KTM 990 SuperDuke. Suzuki TL1000 S/R and SV1000, but chiefs are open to including new machines if suitable.

While frame modifications are not permitted, changes to the brakes, forks, wheels and engine – with capacity capped at 1000cc – are allowed, as are slick tyres.

“The Battle of the Twins class is really gaining momentum,” said series boss Keith Chambers. “We’ve had lots of enquiries and a really good deal of interest, and so far we have 13 entries with a week yet to go.

“For its debut meeting, that shows the ball is definitely rolling.”

Among the entries so far, Aprilia Tuonos, Honda VTR SP1s, Ducati 888s, Ducati 999s, Honda VTR Firestorms, Suzuki TL1000Rs and more are set to be in the mix.
