The famed 24 hours of Le Mans is not the only endurance race that lasts a full day at the iconic French track. The final round of the Endurance FIM World Championship motorcycle race series took place at Le Mans last weekend with its very own 24-hour race.

The bikers do not race the full Circuit de la Sarthe, but rather battle it out on the Bugatti Circuit, which only incorporates the Dunlop Curve and Dunlop Chicane before turning toward the infield for the next eight turns and rejoining the main track just before the pits.

This explanation is a necessary prompt to the video above. John McGuinness took to the track in a Honda TT Legends CBR1000RR race bike. He has been known for some wild on-board videos, but tearing through Le Mans – any part of Le Mans – at night is worth watching.

McGuinness and the Honda TT Legends team finished fifth at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year and fourth overall for the season. Scroll below for the video of McGuinness on this historic track.

      Wait, you mean he didn't pop a massive wheelie out of the pit lane? This dude obviously has no idea what he's doing.

      Lame video. Rear view useless, and not synched with front view. Non-story.

      This track is like a kiddie ride compared to the Mountain Circuit. Perhaps John was snoozing around this place. I guess after my introduction to the TT back in the 80's, purpose built circuits seem a bit sanitary. If you want to see great on bike footage, try John's 132 mph lap of the TT.

      Would have definitely preferred a helmet cam for the front view. Felt like I was looking down at the ground the whole time.

      I thought he wiped out at the very end. What a dramatic way to cut to your closing credit Honda!

      it's not even a "front" view ... more like a "thirty degrees downward" view
