Honda Racing Prepared For Battle at the Bol d’Or

Posted:

Following an intense two-month schedule of pre-season testing, the Honda Racing Endurance World Championship team is well-prepared to face the opening round of the 2014 season, the Bol d‰ÛªOr 24-hour, which will take place at Magny Cours, France this weekend.

It will be the first competitive outing aboard the 2014 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP for the all-new line-up of endurance racing experts, Freddy Foray, Julien Da Costa and Sebastien Gimbert, who between them hold seven EWC titles. Australian rider Jason O‰ÛªHalloran will join the team in Magny Cours as reserve.

All three French riders will undoubtedly be looking to add another championship win to their tally, but for now the focus is on the undeniably demanding task of the first 24-hour battle and securing as many all-important early season points as possible.

The Bol d‰ÛªOr will see the introduction of a major rule change for 2014. At the eight-hour and 16-hour stages of the race, points (from ten to one) will be awarded to the top ten teams and these will be taken into account in the championship standings.

The Bol d‰ÛªOr begins at 15.00 CEST on Saturday 26 April.
