"At the very latest when the motorbikes begin to roar at the start of the 43rd Le Mans 24-hour motorcycle race, the pulse of the motor sports fans sitting in front of their screens at home skyrockets through the roof! The team made up of Erwan Nigon, David Checa and Jeremy Guarnoni took a well-deserved second place for Kawasaki in the French endurance classic. "
The changeable weather caused problems for every driver. "It was a very, very difficult race, conditions were constantly changing and you could see how easy it was to make mistakes. A long-haul course demands two things: speed AND experience," explains Erwan Nigon.
However, the difficult conditions did not prevent the experienced and extremely talented team from completing a full 814 laps (about 3,410 kilometres) using the right racing tactics on the Bugatti circuit in 24:02:33.761 hours, thus securing important points for the rest of the World Championship!
A guarantee for such success was not only the driver performance but also the technology! We are very proud of the fact that the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR has rear lights and also technical components from HELLA – which means that success for Kawasaki is also success for HELLA!
