New era dawns with a cliffhanger is back again at R2M 8 Hour Endurance 2018

R2M 8 Hour Endurance 2017 was the series of bold projects by Thailand’s ‘Motorcycle Racing R & D laboratory’, which is based at Thailand Circuit, Nakhonchaisri, just 70km from Bangkok.

When the project was announced in November 2016 there was a rush of interest and the R2M team, led by Kraitos Wongsawan, pushed ahead, preparing regulations, setting up practice days and training marshals and track staff. Consultation with the Motorcycle Federation of Japan (MFJ) and Mobilityland Corporation, owner of the Twin Ring Motegi and Suzuka Circuits, helped to pull plans together.

As innovators often find, initial enthusiasm waned a little as realization developed of the differences between racing for eight hours and the 20 minute ‘sprints’ that most teams have hitherto been accustomed to. With a track record of having launched scores of new racing classes over the last decade, the R2M team had anticipated the lower numbers and determined to go ahead and put motorcycle endurance racing on Thailand’s sporting agenda. They saw it as another step towards the stated goal of “Putting Thailand on the front row of world motorcycle racing.” Looking beyond this first event, the intentions are to put together a team to compete in the Suzuka 8 Hours and to bring a round of the Endurance World Championship to The Kingdom.

Taking into account the physical demands of Thailand Circuit’s technical 2.5km layout and the rapid sales growth of 300cc and 400cc motorcycles, the engine capacity limit was put at 400cc and technical regulations followed the relatively open regime of the 300cc classes that have been running in recent seasons. And, of course, the trade-off between tuning for maximum power and engine reliability meant that entrants were unlikely to focus too much on brake horsepower. As expected, the machines entered were a variety of Yamaha R3s, Honda CBR300s Kawasaki Ninja 300s and a KTM RC390. Teams could have a minimum of three riders and a maximum of five. One engine change would be allowed along with eight sets of tyres for each team.

In 2017, the first ever R2M 8 Hours Endurance, the number of teams entered for the first race reached seven, which frequently happens with new classes and is regarded by Khun Kraitos as a lucky number. The teams and riders are shown here on a photo of my authentically scribbled-on entry list. It shows a mix of some of Thailand’s best racers, amateur teams who relished the challenge of building and racing a motorcycle for eight hours and some international riders who were drawn to the event by its extensive publicity. The most experienced endurance racer present was Candy Stripe Kawasaki Team owner, ‘Issey’ Waraporn Wiriyahyuttamar, who had done four, eight and 24 hour races, including the iconic Le Mans 24 Hours. Tyre manufacturers represented were Michelin, IRC, Dunlop and Pirelli. Read more about R2M 8 Hours Endurance 2017 report by Barry RUSSELL
