Video Highlights of the 2013 Suzuka 8 Hours musashi honda ewc suzuka 635x424

In case you missed watching this year’s Suzuka 8 Hours (the second stop on the FIM Endurance World Championship calendar), and that is pretty much everyone outside of Japan, since no live stream was available on race day, we’ve got you covered.

Compressing eight hours of hard-fought endurance racing into four and a half minutes, you can witness Ryuichi Kiyonari’s nasty crash on the F.C.C. TSR Honda, Schwantz’s epic return to road racing, and the victory of MuSASHI RT HARC-PRO Honda with Leon Haslam, Takumi Takahashi, and Michael Van Der Mark on-board.

    If every motorcycle sale included a 10 dollar charge for motorcycle only programming could it ensure production and broadcast? Royalties, rights to material etc.? Hell, what’s an extra 100 bucks on top of 10,000?
    Lord knows we cannot depend on channels currently offered. Nice Video-We need more 24/7

    yes, but “fan-sumers” aren’t capable of functioning as a collective. unfortunately, the behavior you suggest requires much higher cognitive ability than currently exists.

    re: “Hell, what’s an extra 100 bucks on top of 10,000?”

    a 100 bucks. they would sooner take an “arrow to the knee”.

    Found this as well. http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle-videos/kiyonaris-suzuka-crash-video/23138.html

    Shame as Kiyonaris was going really well, sliding the back, counter steering, getting kicked by slower competitors. Looks like there was oil on the white line.
