F.C.C. TSR Honda awarded the Anthony Delhalle EWC Spirit Trophy
F.C.C. TSR Honda rose from the depths of the standings to finish fifth at the 8 Hours of Oschersleben after fielding only two riders for nearly the entire duration of an epic race.
F.C.C. TSR Honda had a tough time of it right from the start of the race. Having started from sixth place on the grid, the Honda #5 plunged to the bottom of the standings as one of its tyres developed a slow leak. The Japanese team had been relegated to beyond 30th place when Gregg Black and Josh Hook began their climb back up, racing practically the entire 8 hours on their own without the help of Damian Cudlin, who was suffering crippling back pains. The Australian rider courageously took over in the saddle towards the end of the race to shore up his teammates.
F.C.C. TSR Honda finished the 8 Hours of Oschersleben in fifth place.
The Japanese squad’s motivation and sheer determination in Germany won them the Anthony Delhalle EWC Spirit Trophy.
