The Qtel FIM Endurance World Championship 2011 saw the battle for the title go down to the last round of a season in which five manufacturers took victory. Now you can relive all the vital highlights of the year in the official review, a comprehensive look back at a competitive and action-packed year of Endurance racing.
With a mix of classic events, such as the 24-hour races at Bol d’Or and Le Mans, and newer venues, including Doha, the marathons pushed riders, teams and machines to breaking point, and often beyond, in a World Championship chase packed with outstanding performances, clever strategy, heroic riding and more than a few crashes!
Spectacular footage from all five rounds puts you at the heart of the drama, including the crash-strewn Le Mans showdown, the classic Suzuka encounter – settled by just 38.7 seconds after 8 hours of racing – and, of course, the title deciding final event at the Losail circuit.
The Suzuki Endurance Racing Team, led by Anthony Delhalle, Freddie Foray and Vincent Phillippe, was battling to retain its Endurance World Championship crown, but faced a season-long challenge from BMW Motorrad France 99, plus there were outstanding race-winning performances from Team SRC Kawasaki and Yamaha France GMT 94 iPone.
It was also a strong debut season for the Honda TT Legends squad, featuring Isle of Man TT hero John McGuinness, and a year of delight for F.C.C. TSR Honda with victory in Japan.
The title was decided by just 4 points after five rounds and now you can share all the action and drama in stunning race footage, including on-bike sequences, and interviews with the riders and teams.
