The 2018-2019 FIM Endurance World Championship roars into life this weekend (15-16 September) and the Honda Endurance Racing team is ready for action, as the first round gets underway with the legendary Bol d’Or 24-hour race.
Once again the prestigious event will be held at Circuit Paul Ricard in the south of France, and Honda’s endurance specialists arrive in their best position to-date having wrapped up the 2017-2018 EWC season in third place.
The teams’ rider line-up remains unchanged for the 24-hour with Erwan Nigon, Gregory LeBlanc and Honda stalwart Sébastien Gimbert, all lining up to tackle the 5.673km circuit aboard the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2.
Having finished last year’s event in third place, the team are again looking towards the podium and to do one better to finish second, or become Bol d’Or winners for the first time in the teams’ history.
With interest in the FIM Endurance World Championship growing worldwide, Honda Endurance Racing will be joined by 59 teams on-track, for what is set to be an action packed 24 hours of racing.
The race will get underway on Saturday (15 September) at 1500hrs local time (GMT +1) and finish on Sunday (16 September) at 1500hrs.
