The 45th edition of the 24h of Le Mans took place on the Bugatti circuit of Le Mans in France, as well as the first stage of the Endurance World Championship.

The historic 24 hours this year, after two years of Covid-19, has also found the public that has enveloped it for years, making it even more unique and amazing.

A race against time not only for bikes and teams, this time also for Kevin, who wanted to participate in this feat only 35 days after his serious injury in Jerez.

Still sore and with six fractured ribs, the Spezzino gritted his teeth and demonstrated his tenacity by taking to the track to battle his FIM EWC opponents, once again appearing well as one of the best drivers in the SuperStock category and one of the few to worry. the SBK.

Arriving at the circuit on Wednesday without pre-Le Mans tests and without the first day of free practice, Kevin was immediately very fast, only slowed down by a crash in early qualifying while trying to speed up the set-up times of the bike, which forced to remain in the pits for more than half the round.

In the first night tests, however, he returned to talk about himself, bringing the Yamaha of the Wojcik team 1st in the SuperStock and 11th overall.

Also on the second day of qualifying practice Kevin managed to set an incredible time of 1.37.4, second best time trial in the category, which allowed him, together with the work of his teammates, to conquer the top 3 of the Stock and the 12th overall in gray. .

After being in charge of the start, the flying boar sprinted strong, remaining firmly in command of his category in his first stint and 7th overall, with an EWC race pace.

In these races, however, luck counts more than any other element and unfortunately it was bad luck that got the better of the Wojcik Racing Team 777, forcing the Team to retire due to a mechanical break that did not allow the race to resume.

Kevin: “Racing in my current conditions I didn't know how it could be, but on the bike I felt good, I enjoyed it and I was able to go fast right away, I'm really happy to have recovered so well and quickly.

Unfortunately, racing is also this, you can't always win and defeats must be accepted by learning to be even stronger and better prepared, for me having tried and managed to reach most of my goals after injury was still a victory.

I feel good with the Wojcik Racing Team, we have a lot of harmony and this is demonstrated by the fact that even without having done tests we were immediately very fast.

We have the credentials to do well, so now head down and work towards the next 24h of SPA Francorchamps, an event that will be new for many teams and riders. I can't wait to get back on the saddle again to have fun and give my best. "

Kevin thanks all the sponsors and technical partners of the 2022 season.
