Honda Endurance Team Remains Unchanged For 2016
Honda Motor Europe Ltd. has announce that it will again contest the 2016 FIM Endurance World Championship with Julien Da Costa, Freddy Foray and Sebastian Gimbert, as the trio enters their third consecutive year with the Honda Endurance Racing Team.

The three former EWC champions will again compete aboard the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP in their quest to clinch the championship title.

The 2015 season was mixed for Honda and its French endurance specialists, with strong performances in both 24-hour races at Le Mans and the Bol d‰ÛªOr masked by unfortunate retirements. However, it was only in the final few hours that they were forced to retire, after holding the lead for most of the 24-hour period.

A favorable result came at the 24-hours of Barcelona, a race not in the EWC calendar, where the team finished on the podium in second place and also at the legendary and grueling Suzuka 8-hours and Oschersleben 8-hours, were the squad finished within the top ten.

Building and learning from this year will be key over the winter months for the development of the CBR and the crew and riders - all of who will be looking for a positive 2016 season, with the clear aim of victories firmly in their sights.

"We are very pleased to retain the same three riders for our endurance team; we know that they are capable of running at the front in all the endurance races, which they have shown in the last two years of being in the team." Team manager Neil Tuxworth commented.

"I‰Ûªm happy to be working with Julien, Freddy and Sebastien again, and it keeps the same continuity with the team. We now hope we can provide them with a machine that is capable of winning the Endurance World Championship in 2016.

The full 2016 Endurance World Championship calendar is still to be confirmed by the FIM. Pre-season testing will begin in March.
