Compromise has little place in most forms of racing. Speed is of the essence and everything else is secondary to it. In Endurance, the same principle guides the way, but there are compromises to be made. Speed is as necessary in the pit lane as it on the race track. Being able to repair any... 

Vince Lombardi once said that he "firmly believes that any man's finest hour is that moment when he has worked his heart out for a good cause and he lies exhausted on the field of battle. Victorious." The day is done, the battle is won, and for a third consecutive year, Yamaha lifted the Suzuka...
