4th at Suzuka 8hr feels like a win, YART 2nd in Endurance World Championship 2016
August 1st, 2016
Honestly we did not expect the result that we got. Kohta really stepped up today and we couldn’t have hoped for a better result because we couldn’t have done better than that. The top three were quite a bit further away but we were the top regular endurance team so fourth was the ideal spot today. I had to do quite a bit of work, I rode half the race, but I felt like I needed to do it so I could finish in the dark and keep the gap because it was so close between fourth and seventh and we could easily have slipped back. It’s good for the championship points; it’s really close at the top so coming to Oschersleben for the final round things could be interesting as we're only 8 points behind the lead. It’s a track I like well and the bike works well there so we can have a go at the championship title.
