This weekend there was a very famous race in France.
The " 24 heures du mans ". (Once per year)

This race was very interesting because all the new motorbikes attended to this contest. I mean the new R1, the new CBR, the new ZX10R and of course the actual GSXR.
There were also a lot of very famous pilots.

After 23 hours of race the new r1 was at the first place but an unexpected problem with the clutch occurred and unfortunately the R1 lost the race. (19 laps lost because of this problem)

However there were two R1 on the podium at the end of the race which is not so bad for a motorbike that most of the teams had just received one or two months before the race.

The trials that took place before the race showed that the R1 was a little bite quicker than the GSXR which is a good new for the forthcoming races.

Have you seen this race? It was broadcasted on Eurosport!
What is your feeling about it?

See you
