Hottrax Motorsport Racing Club National Motorcycle Endurance Championship – Round One – Anglesey Circuit 19th and 20th April 2008 - Preview
Endurance motorcycle racing will appear at the newly refurbished circuit of Anglesey for the first time on the weekend of 19th and 20th April 2008.
Some teams tested there over Easter and all are convinced it will be a demanding and exciting venue to kick off the seven round Hottrax Motorsport Racing Club Junior + Senior TAG and National Endurance Championship as well as the MotoGrande series.
2007 Championship winners GBMoto will be back to defend their title with the solid riding partnership of Mark Smith-Halvorsen, Mick Godfrey and Pete Jennings.
They are joined in the National class by a number of newly established teams and partnerships as well as previous title aspirants. Missing from the line up will be Uprite Racing who has two of their riders away on international duty at Le Mans A raft of Junior TAG teams come to the line for the two hour thrash on Saturday afternoon, whilst Senior TAG teams compete alongside the main feature race which starts at noon on Sunday and lasts six hours.
The two 18 Lap MotoGrande races take place on the Sunday morning, as does the practice whereas many of the teams will take advantage of a HOTTRAX Trackday on the preceding Friday.
Whatever happens at Anglesey, you can be assured the racing will be close with strategies, tactics and being slick in the pits will be just as important as overall speed.
