A valiant end to an intense and dramatic 41st running of the 24 Heures Motos, round two of the FIM EWC World Championship, saw the GMT94 Yamaha Official EWC Team recover from two crashes and two costly pit-stops for an awe-inspiring top-10 finish. As one of the most demanding races in the world, it didn't come without issues for the Pole sitters YART Yamaha Official EWC. After taking over the lead on lap 153, YART's Marvin Fritz had an enormous crash that saw his YZF-R1 tumble end-over-end down the circuit, causing damage that cost the team 40 minutes and 33-Laps, and eventually forced a decision to regrettably retire from the race.
