F.C.C. TSR Honda France is hard at work preparing for the 24 Heures Motos. The Japanese team completed a test on the Okayama circuit, and used the opportunity to show off the new livery of the Honda CBR 1000 RR 2018.

One of the lead players of the Bol d’Or 2017, F.C.C. TSR fought hard for the win, but suffered a crash a few hours from the finish. The team is now getting set to surge back into the fray at the 24 Heures Motos.

After scoring a 6th-place finish at the Bol d’Or, the first round of the 2017-2018 FIM EWC, the Japanese team has completed its latest round of tests at Okayama. Freddy Foray was tasked with testing the settings of the Honda #5, and the team’s choice of Bridgestone tyres.

All three riders in the F.C.C. TSR Honda France line-up (Josh Hook, Freddy Foray and Alan Techer) will be on the track at the next test session on the Bugatti circuit at Le Mans in early March.

Italian team No Limits Motor Team has strengthened its rider line-up to take another shot at the Superstock podium. Michael Mazzina, Luca Scassa and Christian Gamarino will be riding the Suzuki #44.

The Endurance world championship is spreading its wings in Italy. FIM EWC promoter Eurosport Events has just signed a broadcast rights agreement with Corsedimoto.com and AutomotoTV.

Last season’s FIM EWC Superstock World Cup winner Yamaha Viltaïs Experiences will be fielding a new team at the 24 Heures Motos.

Moto Ain CRT has put together a strong rider line-up to go after the 2017 FIM EWC Superstock World Cup. Roberto Rolfo, a former 250cc GP runner-up, will shore up Alexis Masbou and Christoffer Bergman on the Yamaha #96.

Yamaha Factory has presented its 2018 teams. While GMT94 Yamaha will continue the season with the squad that won the Bol d’Or, YART Yamaha has announced a fresh rider line-up starting from the 24 Heures Motos.

Manuel Poggiali’s return to racing in the FIM EWC championship has caused a stir in endurance circles. The double GP champion – in the 125 and 250 classes – has announced he is joining Special Team Ducati to race the 24 Heures Motos.
