I was looking into endurance, but I can swear I read the rules( you've read them right?) and you cant endurance with a novice license? I'm 95 per cent sure I read that yesterday. If that is not the case I would love to e apart of a team. I need to get a license first, but I have lots of track exp. just not on a bike:BangHead:

I'm thinking about maybe if ther'es three people we put up 1000 each buy a race bike package from someone with alot of spares already included. Heck i don't know we'll see jsut get at me. I've seen alot of race bikes for around 3000 and they come with extra wheels levers suspension is already done rear sets etc etc.

No yellow shirts allowed in big bike endurance.You'll have to not crash in two seperate sprint weekends before you can start in the big bike.So if your chasing points-your screwed-but if its just for grins-go for it-but be prepared,race pace-even in endurance is a totally diff. level than any trackday

Typical endurance team is 3 to 4 riders.
IMO 4 is an optimal number, especially during 6 and 8 hour endurances.
Treat it like a business, discuss costs; tires, maintenance, entry fees, fuel, etc, don't forget to discuss who pays what if a crash happens, etc.
