JON Railton, Johnny Blackshaw and Dave Ferns are gearing up to hit the FIM EWC series as they unveil their new British Endurance Racing Team.

The trio of club racing regulars have today pulled the wraps off their plans and are set to head to the Le Mans – 24 Heures Motos season opener in just under three weeks’ time for their first race.

Railton, a former Ducati TriOptions Cup champion and NG Road Racing fixture, is no stranger to the endurance scene after having joined Ferns and Richard Steadman at the Oschersleben 8-Hour race last year.

Ferns, also a Ducati Cup man, has plenty laps under his belt as a regular on the No Limits Racing grids, where he even lifted the 8-Hour trophy with the club at the extended Donington Park race in 2018.

Reigning and multiple Wirral 100 Powerbikes champ Blackshaw will complete the British Endurance squad when the team rocks up in France next month.

After a shakedown on home turf, Railton is now headed for the first round of the French Superbike championship at Le Mans to prepare for the EWC challenge.
