Suzuki Endurance Racing Team has been awarded the first ‘Anthony Delhalle EWC Spirit Trophy’ after the finish of the 24 Heures Motos at Le Mans in France.

The team’s will to stay the course, their ability to pick themselves back-up after the toughest of ordeals, and the motivation of the entire team, faithful to the Spirit of Endurance so dear to Delhalle were the reasons behind the jury’s decision to award to SERT, who finished the 24 Heures Motos in fourth position.

The Suzuki Endurance Racing Team had to come to grips with the loss of their team-mate and friend just before the second round of the FIM EWC at the Circuit Bugatti, close to the team’s headquarters. Despite the shock of this, along with the absence of Team Manager Dominique Méliand - who has withdrawn from the EWC circuit for a few months for health reasons - the entire squad banded together in a fine demonstration of the ‘Spirit of Endurance,’ it was felt.

Delhalle’s wife Jessie gave away the first trophy to the whole team, represented on the podium by riders Vincent Philippe, Etienne Masson and Alex Cudlin, and by Dominique Hébrard, SERT’s Team Manager at Le Mans.

The ‘Anthony Delhalle EWC Spirit Trophy’ will be given-out after each FIM EWC championship race to keep the sporting spirit and character of a great rider befitting the calibre of the much-respected Frenchman alive on the racing circuit in the future.
