The first ever Fireblade Festival at the Bol d’Or
During the 81st edition of the Bol d’Or (15-17 September), Honda welcomed over 100 Fireblade riders from across Europe, who attended the inaugural Fireblade festival, which is set to become an annual event.
Guests were treated to a full weekend of activities at Circuit Paul Ricard, which culminated with the Honda Endurance Racing team finishing the 24-hour race on the podium in third place.
Honda Ambassador Jean-Michel Bayle hosted the Fireblade guests over the weekend, as well as three-time World Champion ‘Fast’ Freddie Spencer, who led the guests on a parade lap of the famous circuit and also guided the Fireblade Festival goers through the 24-hour weekend.
As well as getting to ride the circuit, guests were treated to a behind-the-scenes look at a 24-hour race, along with a dedicated campsite and star Q&A’s with Bayle, Spencer and the two Honda endurance teams; Honda Endurance Racing and F.C.C TSR Honda France.
