Honda TT Legends complete 8 Hours of Doha to place seventh in Endurance World Championship
The Honda TT Legends’ inaugural Endurance World Championship came to a triumphant close today with a fifth place finish in the 8 Hours of Doha at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar. The resulting points take the team to seventh place in the overall standings – an achievement to be proud of in its development year.
Stand-in rider Glen Richards started the race and put in a blistering first stint, going from ninth to second on the timesheets after the two leading teams collided and were forced to pit. A determined John McGuinness followed this up and ended his stint in third, before Keith Amor headed out for his first session on the Fireblade.
Over the next couple of hours, the team switched places within the top six before settling into fifth as darkness fell. They then held this position until the end of the race with John McGuinness crossing the line to finish the eight-hour battle for the Honda TT Legends. This is the team’s third fifth-place finish of the year – it completed both the Bol d’Or and the Le Mans 24-hour in the same position to secure seventh in its first ever EWC season.
