8 HOURS OF SUZUKA - THE LAST ONE.

GMT94 - 8 hours of suzuka - the last one.

The EWC (Endurance World Championship) finale will play out at Suzuka (Japan) on July 29.

 

Victorious at the Bol d'Or before earning  two more podium finishes in Slovakia and Germany, GMT94 will attempt to claim a fourth endurance championship title against stiff competition. This race will have a special flavor for GMT94, as it will usher the beginning of a new sporting adventure.

 

After a total so far of seventeen EWC wins, including six at Oschersleben (Germany), three at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, two at the Bol d'Or, and thrirty-nine podiums, including one at Suzuka, GMT94 confirms its ambitions to challenge to front runners in the 2019 World Supersport Championship. Suzuka will be both the championship finale, and that of a long journey crowned with three world championship titles all on the Yamaha R1.

 

David Checa, Niccolò Canepa and Mike Di Meglio will be racing at the Bol d'Or and the GMT94 team wishes them the best for their continuing EWC careers.

 

 

Christophe GUYOT : "I would like to thank World Superbike Championship promoter DORNA for allowing us to honor our EWC commitment despite the conflicting dates. We can now participate in all the remaining events in the World Supersport Championship this year, and of course during the 2019 season. Top-level racing needs teams to take charge of  the training and future of young racers wanting to access the highest level. This will be the purpose of our commitment, which will continue to combine experience and youth.After three world champion and five runner-up titles, we are starting from scratch in a different and challenging discipline.Yamaha, the "94", Mutuelle des Motards and all our partners will join us in this new adventure. Together, we will take the time to build a team that will aim to win in world championship-level sprint racing, just as we did in Endurance. We will put our motivation and energy into achieving this goal.In the meantime, we will give everything to allow David Checa, Niccolò Canepa and Mike Di Meglio to shine at Suzuka."
