Today, Friday 16th March, the list of the 60 teams entered for the 24 Heures Motos was revealed at a press conference in the Club L’Equipe in Paris. The second round of the FIM World Endurance Championship (FIM EWC) on 21 - 22 April promises to be a marvellous spectacle on the track thanks to a high-quality field of both teams and riders.
After receiving 76 entries the ACO set up a selection committee for the second year running to establish the list of the 60 teams accepted for the 2018 24 Heures Motos. This new record for entries is proof that endurance motorbike racing continues to attract new teams and that the 24 Heures Motos is a not-to-be-missed event for the players in this branch of the sport.
The 60 teams entered for the Sarthe Classic are divided up into three categories: 24 bikes are entered for the Formula EWC category, 34 for Superstock and two prototype bikes for the Experimental category. As usual, the 24 Heures Motos has attracted entrants and teams of varied experience with different objectives, which contribute to its richness and to writing its history.
