Yoshimura SERT Motul has won the 24 Heures Motos, round one of the 2022 FIM Endurance World Championship.

Yoshimura SERT Motul has made it back-to-back wins in the 24 Heures Motos to begin the defence of its FIM Endurance World Championship title in style.

Riders Greg Black, Sylvain Guintoli and Xavier Siméon combined to give the Suzuki-powered Japanese squad, which is based in Le Mans, a standout victory ahead of YART – Yamaha Official Team EWC and F.C.C. TSR Honda France.

“It’s an incredible victory and much harder than last year,” said British-born Frenchman Black, who was able to take the traditional running start despite breaking his heel during the Le Mans Pre-Test last month. “The other teams were really, really strong so we had to keep pushing for 24 hours, so the stints were intense, fast and the pace was absolutely incredible. My team-mates did a great job, we’re really happy and proud.”

Yoshimura SERT Motul Team Director Yohei Kato said: “Last year we won the 24 Heures Motos and Bol d’Or and this year we have three 24-hour races. We developed the bike and make our team work focused on the 24 hours, so to achieve this win I am very satisfied with our team, our bike and our riders.”

Team 18 Sapeurs Pompiers CMS Motostore claimed the Dunlop Superstock Trophy.
