EWC 2019-2020 Season Kicks Off! Featuring the Hosting Circuit!


The opening race was held in Bol d’Or, France. All five races, mainly hold in Europe and Asia.

The EWC will compete in all 5 matches a year, mainly hold in Europe and Asia. The opening race is “Bol d’Or 24 Hours”, held in France. Bol d’Or 24 hours endurance is a historic circuit with a maximum speed applied more than 340km/h.

The round 2 is “Sepang 8 Hours” with an interval of about two and a half months. In this course, the race development is greatly influenced by the specialty “squall”. This race development symbolizes the difficulty of endurance racing that can’t be won simply by speed only!

The round 3 is “Le Mans 24 Hours”, will be hosting in France. This course is a technical course, the rider’s points in skills and machine settings are divided into victory and defeat. The round 4 is “Oschersleben 8 Hours”, will be hosting in Germany. Since the race is a relatively short course, strategies like the number of pit stops are very important.

In July, “Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance” will be holding as the final race of the series. This race is the most important race to determine who is the champion. In Suzuka, the “Factory Team”, which is directly commanded by Japanese manufacturers will also participate in the race. So, pay attention to the riding prestige of the 4 major Japanese manufacturers!

Round 1: “Bol d’Or 24 Hours Endurance” September 21-22, 2019
Round 2: “Sepang 8 Hours Endurance” December 14, 2019
Round 3: “Le Mans 24 Hours Endurance” April 18-19, 2020
Round 4: “Oschersleben 8 Hours Endurance” June 6, 2020
Final Round: “Suzuka 8 Hour” July 19, 2020

Round 1: “Bol d’Or 24 Hours Endurance”

Date: September 21-22, 2019
Venue: Circuit Paul Ricard – France

Every year, various races such as 4 wheels and 2 wheels are held at Circuit Paul Ricard, it is a circuit that can set 167 course layouts. The Circuit Paul Ricard has opened since 1970, a famous traditional racing circuit that has been held in the highest 4-wheeled race “F1” 14 times, the Bol d’Or 2-wheeled endurance race 22 times, and the highest peak of the famous 2-wheeled race “MotoGP” 13 times.

The course is about 5km per lap, with an average speed of more than 177.8km/h and a maximum speed of 340 km/h. The speed range is a high-speed circuit.

Round 2: “Sepang 8 Hours Endurance”

Date: December 14, 2019
Venue: Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia

The circuit is located directly under the equator, so the temperature condition and humidity is high throughout the year, forcing riders to race physically tough. In the area where the tropical rain “squall” is likely to occur, it is a great challenge for the riders to race in an environment where the weather suddenly changes everywhere, such as “sudden rain when you think it is sunny”.

It is a circuit where each team’s tactics and teamwork are tested because such “squalls” greatly affect the race development.

Round 3: “Le Mans 24 Hours Endurance”

Date: April 18-19, 2020
Venue: Bugatti Circuit, France

Among the endurance road races, the Le Mans is the longest race history of France after the Bol d’Or 24 hours endurance. The total length of the course is about 4km per lap. The course is relatively low in both maximum speed and average speed. Because the straight line between the corners is also very short, it is well known as a typical stop-and-go course called “open the accelerator and immediately brake.”

Round 4: “Oschersleben 8 Hours Endurance”

Date: June 6, 2020
Venue: Motorsport Arena Oschersleben, Germany

Since the Oschersleben 24-hour endurance race was held in 1998, the World Endurance Championship has been held every year as the main event of the German Speed Week. It’s about 3.6km per lap, and it’s a little short course in the circuit of the World Endurance Championship.

Final Round: “Suzuka 8 Hours”

Date: July 19, 2020
Venue: Suzuka Circuit, Japan

The suzuka circuit is positioned as the final race of the World Endurance Championship. It is a circuit with a tradition that has held various races such as F1 and MotoGP.

The different parts of the race from the previous race are “the ranking points given will be 1.5 times higher”, and in the Suzuka 8 hours race, “the very strong team and the rider will compete in the spot.”

Suzuka 8 hours is one of the few races in Japan where you can see world-class racing, as many of the GP riders have participated in the spot race in the Suzuka 8 Hours so far.
The factory team is also a threat to the team participating for the year, as the rules are also given points to the team who participated in the spot race.

Under these circumstances, it will be interesting to see what strategy each team takes.
