The Honda Endurance Racing team has arrived at the penultimate round of the FIM Endurance World Championship in Germany for the 8 Hours of Oschersleben, this weekend (7-9 June).
Honda’s endurance specialists Sébastien Gimbert, Gregory LeBlanc and Erwan Nigon are currently sitting third overall in the championship standings and with two podium finishes aboard the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2, with a third place at the Bol d’Or and a second place at Le Mans, the crew and riders are looking towards the top step.
At 3.66km long, the track presents fairly flat contours that create smooth and fast racing, which suits the CBR. The team has a proven track record at the German-circuit, where in 2014 they won the race, scoring their maiden EWC win.
The 8 Hours of Oschersleben will begin at 13.00 CEST on Saturday 9 June. For more information and updates on the team throughout the race follow @HondaRacingCBR.
