Continental Dominant in Classic Racing the World Over

Continental’s Road Attack 2 Classic Race tires offer racers a modern high-performance tire in sizes suitable for classic machines. The Road Attack 2 Classic Race tires provide a competitive advantage by way of high-performance compounds, radial construction, a multi-compound tread design, and other modern technologies not found in other tires designed for classic bikes. Proof of the tires’ performance is evidenced by victories around the world during the 2013 season.

English team Sweatshop Phase One won the Maxi Class (1000cc, pre-1982) championship of the FIM European Classic Series aboard a 1978 Kawasaki Z1000 shod with Continental Road Attack 2 Classic Race tires. During the final event of the series at Aragon in Spain—which saw over 40 teams participate—team Sweatshop Phase One turned the fastest lap of the race.  

American rider Ari Henning rode his Continental-shod Honda CB350 to wins in the AHRMA nationals, earning multiple victories at Willow Springs International Raceway, Miller Motorsports Park, and Barber Motorsports Park. Henning set two class records at Miller, and attributes his speed to the secure grip and predictable handling of the Road Attack 2 Classic Race tires. 

Competing in the final round of the Australian Historic Road Racing Championships at Barbagallo Raceway, Tony Hynes took his Road Attack 2 Classic Race-equipped Suzuki GSX-R1100 to a respectable third-place finish against big-bore machines sporting modern 17-inch wheels and full-size slicks.

A team running Continental’s Road Attack 2 Classic Race tires won the prestigious Classic Race event at Tsukuba Circuit in central Japan, setting the fastest lap of day in the process.
