World Endurance: Second-Place Team Disqualified From Suzuka 8-Hours

Update following FIM EWC Suzuka 8 Hours

During the Post-Race Technical Inspection on 7 August following the 44th Coca-Cola Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance Race on 6 August, motorcycle no.104 (TOHO Racing), which finished in second position, was subjected to a fuel tank capacity control by the FIM Technical Directors.

The control recorded a fuel tank overcapacity in contravention of article 2.6.6.10 of the 2023 FIM Endurance World Championship Regulations.

As is required, a secondary fuel tank capacity control was conducted by another FIM Technical Director with a fuel tank overcapacity also recorded.

The FIM EWC Stewards Panel convened to consider the evidence provided by the FIM Technical Director and declared motorcycle no.104 did not conform to the 2023 FIM Endurance World Championship Regulations and disqualified motorcycle no.104 from the results of the 44th Coca-Cola Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance Race.

TOHO Racing appealed the decision of the FIM EWC Stewards Panel, but this was subsequently rejected by the FIM EWC Appeal Stewards Panel.

As such, the decision to disqualify motorcycle no.104 has been upheld and the positions of all other finishers will be reclassified, while points will be reallocated to the eligible finishers.

The Final Ranking of the 44th Coca-Cola Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance Race and the provisional FIM Endurance World Championship points standings are available HERE.
