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.

The American motorcycle champion had succombed to his injuries following a cycling accident on Wednesday 17 May in Italy.

Sixth past the finish line at the 8 Hours of Oschersleben, Moto Ain CRT won the Superstock class in Germany. The team also carried off the EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy, coming in ahead of Völpker NRT48 Schubert Motors by ERC and Tati Team Beaujolais Racing, to receive €4,000 worth of prize money.

After winning the 24 Heures Motos in April, GMT94 Yamaha secured victory at the 8 Heures of Oschersleben following an epic duel with YART Yamaha Official EWC Team. The two factory-backed Yamahas came in ahead of private team Maco Racing Team, also on a Yamaha.

The two factory-backed Yamahas are fighting the predicted duel at the 8 Hours of Oschersleben. GMT94 Yamaha and YART Yamaha Official EWC Team surged into the lead, and had been in a neck-to-neck battle for over five hours when a stop-and-go penalty slowed the French Yamaha.
