The 40th edition of the 24 Hours Moto will take place April 22-23, 2017 at the Bugatti circuit. This legendary moto endurance race will serve as the third round of the FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC).
The next season of the Endurace World Championship (EWC) will include a new calendar format. Indeed, the 2016-2017 season of the FIM EWC will start on September 17th and 18th at the 80th Bol d'Or taking place at the Paul Ricard circuit in Le Castellet, France.
Though for several years the 24 Hours Moto marked the kickoff of the EWC, the 40th edition will actually be the third race of six on the new calendar. The season will have already started and the teams whose early seasons haven't been stellar will want to play catch up. All that spells great battles at the 40th edition of the 24 Hours Moto, so don't miss it!
