Kawasaki Racing Team SRC. Motorcycle endurance race 24H Le Mans 2016

When SERT (Suzuki Endurance Racing Team) ended the successful series of Kawasaki racing team SRC in motorcycle endurance race 24H Le Mans (four wins from 2010 to 2013), the “Green Arrow” consideration was not only to stay on its beautiful momentum with four consecutive wins of the Golden Bowl (Bol d’Or) , but change this and win again on Bugatti circuit.  The Greens from SRC Kawasaki were playing, of course on the victory at Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle race 2016, but a french trio of drivers: Grégory Leblanc, Matthieu Lagrive et Fabien Foret eyeing also (and especially) for the FIM EWC 2016 world title.

For the prestige of the event, of course, but also to position itself favorably for the world title, where Kawasaki racing team takes part since last year, the Greens focusing on the race at Le Mans track. The crew remains the same as in September at Le Castellet circuit, with Matthieu Lagrive and Fabien Foret to support the faithful Gregory Leblanc, who was at all recent success of Kawasaki SRC. The infernal trio count on improved Kawasaki ZX-10r 2016 from team SRC Kawasaki,  who knows the ins and outs of the race and also on the full support of Pirelli.

After 5 hours of racing,  French crew took the first place in the race, ahead of Team April Moto Motors Events and the F.C.C. TSR Honda from Japon.

On Sunday, April 10th, the pilots of Kawasaki racing team SRC were really in great form by signing first place for the general classification of 24 hours of Mans!

This is a first time for Matthieu Lagrive in his victorious career, when he won at Le Mans 24 Hours, having been 5 times in the second place in 15 participations before!

This first place for Grégory Leblanc in the race, the fifth in his racing career, led him to equal the number of victories with Alex Viera at the Motorcycle endurance race 24H Le Mans Moto.
