Guy Martin, Peter Boast take podium on Avon tyres at Endurance Legends
Road racing legend Guy Martin and former British and European flat track champion Peter Boast took second place at the 12-13 May Endurance Legends event on Avon tyres. Racing a 1981 Suzuki GSX-R1100 XR69, Martin and Boast battled it out against 50 of the world’s top classic endurance race teams at Donington Park.
Finishing on the second step of the podium for Team York Suzuki, the duo opted to fit Avon’s 3D Ultra Xtreme rubber, an ultra-high-performance trackday tyre specialised for high levels of grip and superb dry weather performance.
Team owner Kevin Pearson, stated: “It was a great weekend and congratulations to Endurance Legends for putting on a smooth show… For the record, the second Avon tyre fitted during the race had done 115 race laps and to be honest it looked like new, so thank you.”
Guy Martin commented: “Those tyres were mint! All credit to Avon tyres, a superb product.”
