Honda No1 with Freddy Foray, Mike Di Meglio and Josh Hook won the 82nd Bol d'Or on Sunday, September 16, 2018. A return on the highest step of the podium after 22 years of scarcity for the Japanese manufacturer.

At the end of a crazy race marked by the mechanical troubles of the Kawasaki n ° 11 (Randy De Puniet, Jeremy Guarnoni, David Checa), which nevertheless counted in the night 5 laps ahead but also of the Suzuki n ° 2 ( Vincent Philippe, Etienne Masson, Gregg Black) victim of technical problems and a fall, the trio Foray-Di Meglio-Hook won on the track of Castellet Sunday afternoon (arrival at 15h).

A victory that puts an end to the domination of Suzuki (14 wins), Kawazaki (five wins) and Yamaha (three victories including the last two editions).

The crowd, still numerous throughout the weekend, came to greet its champions from the Pitlane. A final point at the 82nd Bol d'Or which will have been a great success.

The next appointment at the Paul Ricard Circuit : the Spartan Race on October 6th and then the French Championship Finals GT FFSA on the weekend of October 13th and 14th. The ticket office for this event is open HERE.
