Launched in 2021, each episode of VIP Pass gives you unfiltered access to the YART Yamaha Team, allowing you to experience all of the drama, action, and emotion first-hand as they compete in the FIM Endurance World Championship. Episode 2 of Season 2 features exclusive interviews, insights and never before seen footage of riders Karel Hanika, Niccolò Canepa, Marvin Fritz, Robin Mulhauser, and Crew Chief Andrew Pitt, along with Team Principal Mandy Kainz as the EWC returned to the legendary Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps for the first time since 2001.
Episode 1 covered the Austrian squad’s superb start to the season with a second-place finish at Le Mans, while in this second episode, we follow them as they head to Belgium for Round 2, full of confidence and trailing the championship leaders by just eight points. Having once been a mainstay on the EWC calendar, Spa welcomed World Championship motorcycle racing back to the circuit for the first time since 2001, meaning it was unknown territory for most EWC teams. Add to this a weather forecast of thunderstorms, the difficulty of racing at a new circuit, plus the fact sixty-five points are up for grabs at a 24-hour race, and the pressure was on.
