It’s been a tough start for Honda’s endurance specialists Freddy Foray, Julien Da Costa and Sébastien Gimbert, who will start the 8 Hours of Oschersleben from tenth place tomorrow (Saturday 20 May), after final qualifying took place earlier today.
With changeable track conditions at the 3.667km German circuit, the Honda Endurance Racing team is finding the cooler temperatures of today more beneficial for the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2, than the higher temperatures experienced in yesterday’s practice and qualifying sessions.
During the final qualifying session this morning the team pushed hard with Foray third fastest in his session. The squad secured a best lap time of 1:28.509, which sees them tenth on the grid for tomorrow’s race.
The 8 Hours of Oschersleben takes place tomorrow, Saturday 20 May, with the race getting underway at 2pm CEST.
