With progress made throughout all practice and qualifying sessions the team and its riders, #freddyforay, #juliendacosta and #sebastiengimbert, started the eight-hour race quietly confident. The Slovakia Ring is a new circuit added to the FIM EWC calendar and is one that seems to have suited both riders and the 2017 Fireblade.
The race got underway at 1330 local time and it was Foray who started for the #honda squad. With a good start off the line, Foray was within the top-five by the end of the first lap. However, a small mistake in the opening stages saw him drop to 21st place and the battle to get back into the lead group started.
Honda’s #endurance specialists pushed on at the 5.922km circuit and teamed with fast pit stops from the super-slick #honda crew, it wasn’t long until #honda #endurance #racing broke back into the top-ten.
