Suzuki Endurance Racing Team finished the season on the highest note. Vincent Philippe, Sylvain Guintoli and Kenny Foray were twice victorious, winning the 8 Hours of Doha, the last race of the season and offered the 2010 Qtel FIM Endurance World Championship title to the Suzuki Endurance Racing Team, the tenth title for the official French team.
SERT won with a four laps lead over the Yamaha Austria Racing Team. Igor Jerman, Steve Martin and Gwen Giabbani did their best during the 8 hours race to follow the pace of the leaders and ended up on the podium a rather mellow season. World champion in 2009, YART finished the 2010 season in third position.
There was a tight battle developing towards the very end of the race for the third place. The Honda RMT 21 Racing Germany with Viktor Kispataki, Didier Van Keymeulen and Arie Vos took the best from Kawasaki Bolliger Switzerland with Horst Saiger, Patric Muff and Roman Stamm. The private Swiss team came to Doha with the championship lead, but the nine points advantage over SERT was not enough to preserve the title hopes. However, Bolliger Team Switzerland scored a well-deserved second place at the 2010 Qtel FIM Endurance World Championship.
The Suzuki AM Moto Racing Competition finished in fifth place, this result almost feeling like a victory for this private French team who dedicated the great result to Raphaël Chèvre, one of their rider, still recovering from serious injuries at the latest Bol d’Or. For the team BMW BMP Elf 99, this race ended in another disappointment. Sébastien Gimbert, Erwan Nigon and Damian Cudlin have been battling against SERT all race long; however, a crash towards the end deprived them from a promised podium. BMP Elf 99 finished in sixth place, ahead of the Suzuki RAC 41 City Bike, delayed after having repaired a puncture.
In eighth place, the Suzuki Qatar Endurance Racing Team 1 of Anthony Delhalle, Alex Cudlin and Mashel Al Naimi won the Superstock class ahead of Team Motor Events with Baptiste Guittet, Vincent Bocquet and Emilien Humeau and the BMW Boenig Penz13 Racing Team of Jure Stibilj, Steve Mizera and Matti Seidel.
Tenth place finish of the 8 Hours of Doha were also the Suzuki RT Motovirus with Cyril Brivet, Lucas de Carolis and Frédéric Jond, delayed from the start as they collided with another machine.
For the Yamaha France GMT 94 Ipone, the Doha race ended in another disappointment. Very fast during the qualifications and favourite for a podium, Yamaha France GMT 94 Ipone finished at the end of the pack after two crashes.
One of the most frustrating retirements comes from the Spanish Yamaha of Folch Endurance. Pedro Vallcaneras, Jose Manuel Luis Rita and Jordi Almeida were promised to a third place but a collision in the very last laps with the Honda RMT 21 Racing Germany took them far away from a podium. For the Team Suzuki 18 Sapeurs Pompiers, it was a similar disappointment. After a difficult season, Stéphane Molinier, Jérôme Tangre and David Brière were in position to take a rewarding revenge, as they were in fourth place before their rear wheel was blocked. Very well placed on the starting grid, the Yamaha of Team X-One gave up after a crash during the second hour of race. BK Maco Moto Racing, with a broken engine due to a coolant leak, and the Suzuki III and IV of Qatar Endurance Racing Team, also retired with engine breakdowns.
