Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance European Cup returns for 2022| World Staff | World News
Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance Trophy returns in 2022 with four venues and six races, including a 90-minute night race, on the calendar.
After three extraordinarily successful seasons with no fewer than 30 teams on every starting grid in 2021, the Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance Trophy - dedicated to riders who want to venture into riding in spectacular “fast endurance” races inspired by the legendary races of yesteryear - is back in 2022 with a big addition. For the fourth edition of the Eagle single-brand championship, the new Moto Guzzi V7 “racing” version will make its début.
The six Fast Endurance races take in the best Italian circuits, starting in Vallelunga and finishing in Misano with Cremona and the breathtaking Mugello added for 2022. The new Moto Guzzi V7 with 850cc engine, outfitted with GCourse racing kit and Pirelli tyres, makes its track debut while the tried and true V7 III bikes are also on the grid in a separate category.
The FIM European Cup will feature six “mini endurance” races:
Vallelunga (14, 15 May): two 60-minute races
Cremona Circuit (17 July): 90-minute race
Mugello (28 August): 90-minute race
Misano (15, 16 October): 90-minute night race (day 1), 60-minute race (day 2)
The first Misano race will be held at night with the floodlights (and V7 headlights) illuminating the track. The new addition of the night race will give participants the opportunity to experience another type of thrill usually reserved for a few lucky riders.
A clear throwback to the legendary endurance races of old is represented by the race start, which takes place in traditional “Le Mans” style. Each rider can be on track for no more than 15 minutes at a time (plus 5 minutes to return to pit lane from the time the special “change” board is displayed). Creating at least three or five rider changes during the 60 or 90 minute races. Refuelling is not permitted. At the end of the race, points are awarded to the top 15 teams.
The Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance championship is open to all, from track novices to the most seasoned racers.
