>Racing returned to Donington Park for the opening Masters Historic UK event on the weekend of April 2 – 3.

The first venue for this year’s Masters Historic Racing in the UK was held at Donington Park over the Easter weekend of April 2 – 3.

The sunny but cold weekend treated drivers and enthusiasts to seven glorious Masters races.

Despite crowds being absent this year, fans enjoyed all the action through Master Historic Racing Donington Park 2021 live stream on Saturday afternoon.

Masters Endurance Legends – Race 1

Jack Dex overcame all the challenges thrown his way by Steve Tandy’s Lola B12/60 and even teammate Max Lynn in another BR Engineering BR01 to claim a well-deserved win in the first Masters Endurance Legends race at Donington Park. 

Maxwell LYNN – BR 01

Starting from pole, Dex’s first trial was to stay ahead of the fast-starting Tandy. When the Lola spun off at Redgate, the next challenge came from Max Lynn providing mid-race pressure on the lead. When Dex crossed the chequered flag, he was a full 21 seconds ahead.

Towards the end of the race, Lynn was pressured strongly to keep his position from his father, Shaun, who was in another BR01 P2 prototype. 

Coming after the BR01 1-2-3 finishes, the MG-Lola EX257 driven by Mike Newton came in fourth. Next was Richard Cook in the Riley & Scott Mk3C, and in the last of the BR01s was Richard Meins.

In the GT class, Olly Bryant in the Ford Mustang GT-S1 was in a class of his own.  

Masters Endurance Legends – Race 2

Despite the pressure coming from the BR01s of Jack Dex, Max Lynn and Shaun Lynn, Steve Tandy received a well-deserved victory.

After the halfway pitstops, Tandy’s Lola B12/60 took the lead where he was able to keep it despite well over 15 minutes of intense pressure.

Mike Newton’s MG-Lola EX257 showed form in the first share of the race, placing pressure on the newer BR01s and Tandy’s ex-Dyson Racing Lola.

Going Once, Going Twice: The best bikes from the Bonhams February sale

bmw rs 500 bonhams february sale 2024 745x497 1 jpg

Ex-Hans-Otto Butenuth BMW RS 500 at the Bonhams February sale
The Bonhams February sale is about to wrap up, so we’re taking a break from our regular scheduled programming to pick our favorite motorcycles from the auction. From an Ariel Square Four and a 1989 Kawasaki ZX-10, to Hans-Otto Butenuth’s BMW 500 Rennsport [above], here are seven classic motorcycles that we’d love to park in the Bike EXIF garage.

1907 Quadrant at the Bonhams February auction
1907 Quadrant In the early 1880s, two blokes by the names of Walter and William Lloyd patented a pedal tricycle steering mechanism, which they (very confusingly) called the ‘Quadrant.’ Anyway, Quadrant went on to make bicycles, tricycles, and motorcycles, and, by 1901, had emerged as one of Britain’s earliest motorcycle manufacturers.

This 453 cc Quadrant was originally built in Coventry and was meticulously restored by a previous owner. It showcases its history through hand-written notes, technical drawings, old registrations, marque-related literature, and an SMCC Pioneer Certificate.

Road tested: TFX Suspension Xtreme adjustable rear shocks

tfx suspension review 745x497 1 jpg

TFX Suspension review
I got lucky when I bought my 2012-model Triumph Bonneville SE last year. A single-owner bike with less than 1,500 miles on the dial, it had spent most of its life trickle-charging in a garage. What’s more, the previous owner had thrown a handful of tasteful factory accessories at it (and a few that were less well-judged).

There was one key ingredient missing though; good suspension. Most modern classics roll out of the factory with suspension components that are adequate at best, but the older air-cooled Bonneville’s setup is downright poor. Small LED turn signals and a fancy sprocket cover might make your bike look prettier, but new shocks—like the fully adjustable TFX Suspension Xtreme units now gracing the tail end of my Triumph—will make it ride better.

TFX Suspension Xtreme rear shocks review

Based in The Netherlands, TFX Suspension is run by a small and passionate team, led by founders Hans-Dieter Fischer and Alex Meijs. The two of them formed TFX fourteen years ago when the suspension company that they were working for folded. Now they produce components on their terms, with the sort of hands-on approach that’s often missing from larger companies.

Their catalog includes various mono- and twin-shock items, suitable for a wide range of on- and off-road applications, plus a handful of front suspension upgrades. (We’ve seen their parts on custom bikes from Bottpower, Powerbrick, CNCPT Moto, and more.) They sent me a set of their Xtreme shocks to test out on my Triumph Bonneville; fully-adjustable units that retail for €1,399 [$1516].
