The entry list for the Imola 4 Hour round of the European Classic series endurance championship has finally been unearthed and left sellotaped to a lamppost outside the circuit.

As expected, all of the championships leaders are present and correct, with Neate Racing fielding John, Steven and Sam on their Honda, Team Taurus with Giorgio Cantalupo, Sandro Caprara and Alejandro Martinez Mas on their Suzuki XR69, Steve Boam, Steve Clark and Bob Collins on the SCERT Suzuki, Ralf Wobker, Ronald Matthies and Niels Paulsen on the ACR Kawasaki, Pete Linden and Ian Simpson on the No.4 Sweatshop Phase One Suzuki and Hugh Brasher and Mike Dickenson on the No.3 Phase One bike.
Alf's Kawasaki (Mick Godfrey, Mike Edwards, John Barton) are all present and correct, but the Team Classic Suzuki Katanas are not listed as entered despite them being on the way to the circuit.
The entry list is a mix of European Classic Series competitors and Italian Championship teams, split between Maxi Classic, Classic 1000, and 750TT, 750TTA and 750TTB classes. This being an Italian race it should be no surprise that so many Moto Guzzis are entered, outnumbering the Ducatis despite the Imola circuit's proximity to the Ducati factory in Bologna.
