Fresh off the back of a second-place finish at the Le Mans 24 Heures Motos, the Honda Endurance Racing team has arrived at the third round of the FIM Endurance World Championship in Slovakia this weekend (10-12 May), with the podium firmly in its sights.
The 8-hour race will take place at the Slovakia Ring, situated near the country’s capital Bratislava. At 6km long and with 14 corners, the track will present a fast and technical challenge for Honda’s endurance specialists Gregory LeBlanc, Sébastien Gimbert and Erwan Nigon, but the three Frenchmen are more than ready to take it on.
The team has already clocked up two podium finishes this season aboard the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2, with a third-place at the Bol d’Or and a second-place at Le Mans. The crew and riders are now hoping to go one step further in Slovakia by claiming the race victory.
The 8 Hours of Slovakia Ring will begin at 14.30 CEST on Saturday 12 May. For more information and updates on the team throughout the race follow @HondaRacingCBR
