Headline: More podium honours for the BMW S 1000 RR racers – Racing action on three different continents.
Munich (DE), 3rd August 2016. It was another busy weekend for the BMW
S 1000 RR riders and the BMW Motorrad Motorsport experts, with four
events on three continents. With the famous “Suzuka 8 Hours” (JP), the
2016 FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) season continued in Japan.
In the Superbike IDM / International German Championship (IDM),
Mathieu Gines (FR) and Bastien Mackels (BE) claimed further podium
finishes for the BMW S 1000 RR in Schleiz (DE). In addition, the BMW
riders were in action in the Italian Superbike Championship (CIV) in
Misano (IT) and the South African SuperGP Champions Trophy (RSA SBK)
in Delmas (ZA). With their results, they all collected further points
towards the 2016 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy (see full standings below).
FIM Endurance World Championship in Suzuka, Japan.
The “Suzuka 8 Hours” (JP) marked the third round of the 2016 FIM
Endurance World Championship (EWC). This race is the most important
event on that country’s racing calendar, with all Japanese
manufacturers entering full works teams with prominent rider line-ups.
This year, nearly 70 teams took part, among them eight privateer BMW
Motorrad Motorsport customer teams. The highest placed BMW S 1000 RR
was the number 135 of Team Tras 135HP: Yuta Kodama (JP), Gary Johnson
(GB) and Ryosuke Katahira (JP) claimed 16th place. They were directly
followed by Koji Teramoto (JP), Pedro Vallcaneras (ES) and Toshitane
Soma (JP) of team Motorrad Rennsport in 17th.
Superbike IDM / International German Championship in Schleiz, Germany.
The fifth round of the 2016 Superbike IDM / International German
Championship (IDM) was held at “Schleizer Dreieck” (DE) last weekend.
On this occasion, Mathieu Gines (FR) and Bastien Mackels (BE) claimed
two more podium finishes for the BMW S 1000 RR.
Van Zon-Remeha-BMW rider Gines was second both overall and in the
Superbike class (IDM SBK) in race one. He crossed the line only 0.194
seconds behind the winner. However, the Frenchman, who is runner-up in
the championship, experienced bad luck in race two. He had a crash
through no fault of his own and suffered fractures to his forearm. We
wish Mathieu a speedy recovery.
It was Mackels’ turn to step onto the podium in race two. The Belgian
Wilbers-BMW-Racing rider finished third overall and second in the
Superbike class. In the first encounter, Mackels had taken the
chequered flag in fifth. Two more BMW riders secured finishes in the
overall top ten: Dominik Vincon (DE / BMW Stilgenbauer) was ninth in
race one (fourth in the Superstock class IDM STK), directly followed
by Jan Bühn (DE / Van Zon-Remeha-BMW) in tenth (fifth in the IDM STK).
Italian Superbike Championship in Misano, Italy.
Misano (IT) on the Adriatic coast hosted the third round of the 2016
Italian Superbike Championship (CIV). The highest placed BMW riders
were Lorenzo Lanzi (IT / TMF) and Matteo Ferrari (IT / DMR Racing
Team). Lanzi finished both races in fifth on his BMW S 1000 RR.
Ferrari secured fourth in the second heat, after he was tenth in race
one. His DMR Racing team-mate Denni Schiavoni (IT) was seventh and
sixth. Alessandro Polita (IT / Tutapista) also raced into the top ten,
finishing the first race in eighth.
South African SuperGP Champions Trophy in Delmas, South Africa
After a break of two months, the 2016 South African SuperGP Champions
Trophy (RSA SBK) resumed at the “Red Star Raceway” near Delmas (ZA)
last weekend. The array of nine BMW S 1000 RR riders was led by Lance
Isaacs (ZA / Lance Isaacs Racing) and Garrick Vlok (ZA). Isaacs
finished the two races in fourth and sixth. Vlok crossed the line in
sixth and fifth.
