Circuit Bugatti - Le Mans - 8°C
20 Apr. 2024 - 3PM CEST
Rather than the 13.626-kilometre Circuit de La Sarthe, the traditional EWC curtain-raiser takes place on the 4.185-kilometre Bugatti Circuit. The demanding layout comes complete with the famous Le Mans start/finish straight, Dunlop Esses and Ford Chicane, while a twisty infield ensures there’s little respite. Riders also face the prospect of shorter daylight hours and colder temperatures during the night and early morning. Although the inaugural 24 Heures Motos took place in 1978, when Jean-Claude Chemarin and Christian Léon rode a Honda to victory, the ACO staged its first motorbike race in 1912, long before the Bugatti Circuit’s September 1966 inauguration.

Moments that made EWC 2023 great: Vierge brings his Superbike skills to Suzuka

Team HRC with Japan Post proved unbeatable during a thrilling third round of the 2023 FIM Endurance World Championship as FIM Superbike World Championship star Xavi Vierge helped the outfit to victory in the 44th Coca-Cola Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance Race, which took place at the iconic last Japanese venue last August.Its second Suzuka victory in as many years followed a lengthy delay for Yamalube YART Yamaha EWC Official Team and an early setback for F.C.C. TSR Honda France, all of which meant the EWC title chase would go down to the wire during the season-deciding Bol d’Or.For Spanish ace Vierge, however, the focus was firmly on his debut EWC win alongside Japanese riders Takumi Takahashi and Tetsuta Nagashima, who recovered from a foot injury to take part having not raced since the previous April.“For me it’s amazing because it’s the first time I made this amazing race and to get this win just feels incredible,” Vierge (pictured left) said. “I need to say thank you so much to my team and also to my team-mates, they did an amazing job. I learn a lot from them during all of the week and finally we are able to have a good pace. It has not been easy because in my second stint I had the safety car and I was one of the last in my group [when the race restarted] and it was so difficult to overtake without making mistakes. And the last two hours for them were really difficult with the rain. But they just made the correct decisions in every moment. It was a perfect strategy, it’s such a pleasure and I’m so happy.”
