6 Heures Moto From Bikers’Days to the 6 Heures Moto, it’s merely a matter of acceleration!

By organising Bikers’Days throughout the year on countless prestigious circuits, starting with Spa-Francorchamps, DG Sport allows lovers of speed on two-wheels to thoroughly enjoy themselves. And once they have mastered that, they might consider moving up into competition via the 6 Heures Moto. A close-up on two teams for whom this coming Sunday will be their ‘very first time’’… 

Building up the laps on the circuit, gaining experience, reducing the lap times … and then taking the big step! This is how a number of the Bikers’Days regulars went about it prior to registering for the 2023 edition of the 6 Heures Moto… 

Spa-Francorchamps is clearly my favourite circuit, and I believe that I have never missed a single day of riding organised by DG Sport this year, Frederic Hoste commented, who together with Bruno Orthmans and Edwin Kindekens will be part of the #67 Ducati Gent team, entered in the 1000 AM class. For us the 6 Heures is a logical next step, but we are aware that the level is higher. So, we competed in several lesser races to prepare ourselves, and here we are! We know we will not win, but in an endurance race, strategy and pit work are of major importance. So, we are going to produce the best we can, and see what happens! “

A statement that also applies to the Angus Team, also entered in 1000 AM, with Thimothé Chaidron, Jérôme and Dimitri Collard boasting the #321 bib. “We’re a great bunch of friends all with the same passion, and the urge to progress with the feeling of competition adrenaline clearly there, Timothé Chaidron explained. We know we are not ready either physically or on the organisational front, but the objective of this first race is to understand how it all works, and to be able to fine-tune it with a view to future participations. We hope to make it through to the finish, with no pretentions other than enjoying it. The pressure is starting to build; that’s a fact, but we’re looking forward to the race! For us it’s a step up as compared to our activities at the Bikers’Days…”

By enabling these teams to experience their first laps in an amateur competition such as the 6 Heures Moto, DG Sport is pursuing its in-depth work: offering the bikers the possibility to enjoy themselves on a track rather than on the road, giving them the chance to harden up, to finally find themselves at the start of a race which represents a major event! In doing so the Theux based organiser is richly contributing to the popularity of the motorcycle sport in our country. And that is a very good thing …
