In this 24-Hour race of mini motorcycles, that began at noon on September 10, Team KYMCO USA Project K-Pipe glued a new page to record books by being the first official KYMCO team competing in this grueling test of endurance, reliability, and all types of luck. Finishing 13th overall and seventh in the Formula 5 class, this historic record has been fairly well confirmed.

Facing a field of fast riders from tweener girls to three generations of moto-journalists, Team KYMCO USA Project K-Pipe endured four incidents on its long way around the clock. In those incidents, riders and the K-Pipe parted ways mid-lap sometimes due to competitors who were more zealous than discrete, and sometimes due to operator error. But each time, the riders remounted the K-Pipe.
