Bol d’Or: the opening race of the 2019-2020 FIM EWC season
The new FIM Endurance World Championship will kick off with the Bol d’Or on 21 and 22 September on the Paul Ricard circuit in Le Castellet. 59 teams are expected to race the opening round of the 2019-2020 FIM EWC.
With 30 days to go for the Suzuka 8 Hours Grand Finale, the 2019-2020 FIM EWC is already taking shape. Applications for entry to the Bol d’Or, the opening round of the new season, are now being accepted. Teams have until 15 July midnight to send their entries. There are only 59 places on the starting grid.
The 83rd edition of the Bol d’Or will be flagged off at 3pm on Saturday 21 September.
A brand-new race will slot in before the opening round of the 2019-2020 FIM EWC to give young riders a taste of endurance racing. The first-ever Bol de Bronze – launched with the support of the Fédération Française de Motocyclisme and Pirelli – will see 50 riders aged 14 to 20 competing in a two-hour race on bikes under 500cc.
The Bol de Bronze will take place on the afternoon of Friday 20 September on the 3.8-km configuration of the Le Castellet circuit.
