SUZUKI RETAINS EWC LEAD AFTER LE MANS 24-HOUR

(Monday, 17 April 2017)

Suzuki Endurance Racing Team continues to lead in the 2017 Endurance World Championship after finishing fourth in the second round, the 40th Le Mans 24-Race in France.

SERT riders Vincent Philippe, Etienne Masson and Alex Cudlin crossed the line just-off the podium with a total of 848 laps completed following a difficult and emotional event close-to the team’s headquarters - and hearts - at the Circuit Bugatti.

In memory of Anthony Delhalle, the team’s long-standing rider, who succumbed to injuries during testing last month, the team raced throughout, despite suffering a couple of slip-offs during the night when Masson clipped another rider. Then, following a quick pit-stop, Masson slipped-on oil and the team had to climb back-up the ranks again.
