The key timings for the 24H SPA EWC Motos, round two of the 2023 FIM Endurance World Championship, have been revealed.

As part of ongoing efforts to manage the costs associated with competing in the EWC, the event will feature three days of track activity only.

Kicking things off from 10h00 CET on Friday 16 June is an hour-long Free Practice session followed by First Qualifying from 12h00-14h00. Second Qualifying will follow from 15h15-17h15 with Night Practice rounding out the day’s action from 21h30-23h00.

Due to the late finish on Friday and in the interests of giving riders, teams, officials and volunteer marshals the opportunity to sufficiently rest and prepare for the race, no morning Warm-up will be scheduled on Saturday.

Following a Pit Walk from 11h30-12h30 on Saturday, the build-up to the 24H SPA EWC Motos begins with the opening of the pitlane from 13h00 ahead of the race getting underway at 14h00.

The all-action track activity will be complemented by the Fan Zone, which is operational from 10h00-20h00 on Friday, from 09h00-20h00 on Saturday and 09h00-14h00 on Sunday. There will be live music with performances from various rock acts from 21h00-00h00 on Saturday. Campsites will be open from Thursday to Monday.
