A fifth-place finish at the Suzuka 8 Hours has given F.C.C. TSR Honda France overall victory in the 2017-2018 FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC). Bridgestone, as the team’s exclusive supplier, says it is “particularly proud to have contributed to this incredible accomplishment.”
The Dunlop-shod GMT94 Yamaha team took its third Le Mans 24 Hours victory with a strong performance in the second round of the FIM Endurance World Championship on the Bugatti track. The team took the lead at the 21 hour mark and overcame a late collision with another bike to win by just over a minute. The win on Dunlop’s commercially available KR106/KR108 tyres marks the second victory for David Checa, and the first for Niccolo Canepa and rookie Mike Di Meglio.
