24 hr endurance race

Anyone know if there is such a race anywhere in the world?

I know about a 3 hour and a 8 hour race, but this will b e the second year in South Africa we will be hosting a 24 hour endurance race.

Race starts at 12:00 on Saturday 8 December 2012 and ends 12:00 on Sunday 9 December.

Last year we had a total of 20 bikes and 116 riders and thusfar for this year we have 35 bikes, +- 210 riders.

Rules are:

30 min sessions
Maximum of 6 riders and min of 4 riders per team
Any bike greater than 450 cc
Any mods except quick release wheel clips
1 x national 1 x regional rider.

Like to last years race


Biker born, Biker bread, when I die, I'l be Biker dead...

Re: 24 hr endurance race

There used to be a 24 hour race for amatures and track day people here in Europe some years ago, but they don't run it anymore. I forget who the organizer was.

But the Bol d'Or and Moto Le Mans are the official 24 hour races for motorcycles, they are part of the FIM World Endurance Cup, just like the Le Mans for cars is part of a World Championship.

Re: 24 hr endurance race

I'd be so pissed if a teammate crashed the bike at hour 23 or something..

Re: 24 hr endurance race

Last year sucked a bit. Ran a GSXR 1000 K7... In hour 17 one of our riders got confused with the gearing (was running GP shift) and shifted down instead of up. (so he says)

Outcome was that we bent two valves....

Ps. Not a stock head and cams..
