09 February 2024

Sylvain Guintoli won’t be short of “positive energy” when he races for the BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team in the FIM Endurance World Championship in 2024.

The Frenchman has joined the Belgian squad from Yoshimura SERT Motul for the four-round EWC, which consists of two 24-hour counters and two featuring eight hours of action.

He will combine his EWC role with his job as a test rider for BMW’s FIM Superbike World Championship attack.

And following four days of testing in Portugal and Spain, Guintoli said: “Four days of testing allowed me to discover the BMW M1000RR and the BMW team. A positive first contact, an excellent feeling and energy on this new project and already a development work in full swing.”
