If you like classic bike racing then late summer in the UK is when you make sure you get your yearly fix of the truely inspiring sights and sounds of classic bike racing, starting with the 6th Round of Lansdowne Classic  Series at the Donington Classic Bike Festival, Derby, 8th-10th August.

Unlike the majority of racing events where spectators are kept separate from the paddock, at Lansdowne Classic Series you’re free to roam the paddock and get close to all the historic racing machines and be immersed in the raucous cacophony of roaring engines during pre-race warm-ups. As always at Donington Classic Bike Festival, pre 60’s bikes racing in the Lansdowne Classic Series will be joined on the track by more than 60 important race machines, including the most exotic, the Honda 6 cylinder.

Competing for The Lansdowne Cup include some of the most successful TT competitors such as Charlie Williams with nine IOM TT victories and IOM TT Ace, Bill Swallow.

Passionate about classic bike racing, we believe it is vitally important to support and celebrate our racing heritage. Since Ferry Brouwer’s Centennial TT at Assen in 1996 it’s been a mission of ours to keep race track helmet art alive and begun with the Davida Racing Series – featuring the racing design of 17 World Champions from the 50’s & 60’s.

In 2001 Davida became the first manufacturer to be commissioned by the Hailwood Family to reproduce Mike’s iconic ‘For The Love of Sport’ helmet design on our helmets.

The following year we re-created the original racing design of the Ducati Works Riders competing in the 1950’s Motogiro ‘d’ Italia such as Leopoldo Tartarini, Remo Venturi and Guilliano Maoggi.

Over the past decade, our ACU Gold Davida Jet has carried the racing colours of a variety of classic bike racers, such as Bill Swallow, who prefer the Davida Jet, open face experience. 1st in the IOM Classic Manx GP on a 350cc Honda in 1986, Bill has since won 8 more and is the race record holder in the 350cc class. He is still the fastest ever on the IOM TT Course on a 250, 350 and 500cc single cylinder bikes.

Bill Swallow CRMC Lansdowne Cup Series

” I always reckoned I rode harder in an open face and goggles – you can get your head down. My Davida Jet is so comfortable, more flexible… the lightness and mobility of the Davida Jet and goggle combination allows me to get around the bends faster ” – Bill Swallow
