The FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) is an exciting championship in which both the motorcycles and riders are sorely put to the test in races lasting from 8 hours to 24 hours.

Having Eurosports Events as promotor since 2015, the world championship has witnessed a substantial increase in both media coverage, with races being broadcast worldwide, and race attendance figures, as a result of renewed interest in the sport. The championship is also attracting bigger, more international rider line-ups, with an ever-increasing number of new, high-level teams and riders signing up to compete in the FIM EWC each year.

The hottest and the latest news, twitter, facebook posts of the championship and from each participating team can be found at FIM EWC website and each channel.
