Newly-crowned All-Japan Superstock champion Yuki Takahashi has signed to join Josh Hook and Mike Di Meglio in the FCC TSR Honda World Endurance team.

Takahashi competed in the GP250 and subsequently in Moto2, has also made his mark in the JSB 1000 Superbike championship (5th in 2018), and this year won the first All-Japan Superstock 1000 title in the new category the Japanese championship introduced in 2020.

Importantly Takahashi has a strong track record in the Suzuka Eight-Hours, climbing to the third step of the 2010 race with F.C.C. TSR Honda, and finished second in 2012 in the saddle of Toho Racing with Moriwaki Honda. He then continued racing with Moriwaki, regularly finishing in the Top 10 at Suzuka.

“I’m thrilled to join the F.C.C. TSR Honda France team. As a child, my dream was to become world champion. I have MotoGP and World Superbike experience. I’ll do my utmost to become the world champion in the FIM EWC with this team,” said Takahashi.
