The 2017-2018 FIM EWC champions F.C.C. TSR Honda France were honoured on Sunday 2 December at the 2018 FIM Awards, held to celebrate the winners of all the past season’s FIM championships.

After being crowned endurance world champions last July at the Suzuka 8 Hours, F.C.C. TSR Honda France, the first-ever Japanese team to win the championship, received their medal at the FIM Awards. All the 2018 world champions were present at the official awards ceremony in Andorra on Sunday evening.
