Four consecutive wins 24 hours motorbikes and three wins to sharpen in the Bol d’Or. This is what it took for Gilles Stafler to finally convince Kawasaki engage officially on the duration of the Championship of the world of endurance and aim for the world title. His opponents have now something to be worried about.
It had become a chestnut tree. After each victory during a race 24-hour Championship in the world of endurance (and they were many years past), journalists asked Gilles Stafler if the success of his team was not going to push the Japanese to commit to the Championship to go for a world Crown. Because stack successes on the prestigious events that are the 24 hours and the Bol d’Or is one thing, but winning a title of world champion is another. And perseverance of the boss of the CBC team ended up paying since Kawasaki announces that the French team officially supported by the factory will play the entirety of the 2015 season. Now remains to Gilles Stafler men to learn to handle the pressure of the Championship against opponents who thought sometimes more to the big points to victory during the events of 24 hours. A new player’s weight is in any case his entry in the race, and that’s good for the show.
Director of the French branch of Kawasaki Motors Europe Mr. Keisuke Goto
“Teams and drivers Kawasaki won number of successes in the World Endurance Championship, whether on official or private participation.” Machinery Kawasaki have won many podiums and have incredible victories in the World Endurance Championship.

The incredible team of CBC Kawasaki has already won many races of 24 and shown incredible consistency in the success by winning the 24 hours of Le Mans 4 times in a row.
