Headline: Wins and podiums for the BMW S 1000 RR in four different championships – New record numbers for the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy.
Munich (DE), 6th July 2016. It is another impressive number: the BMW
Motorrad Race Trophy continues to grow from year to year. For 2016 no
less than 129 BMW racers have registered their participation – a new
record. There has been also a change in the top positions: Chilean
Maximilian Scheib improved to second courtesy of another win in the
FIM CEV Superbike European Championship (CEV). This was one of the
many strong results the BMW S 1000 riders, supported by BMW Motorrad
Motorsport, achieved last weekend. There were also wins and podiums in
the French Superbike Championship (FSBK), the French European Bikes
Championship (FR EU) and the Italian Superbike Championship (CIV).
2016 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy.
The classification is still led by Michal Prášek (CZ / AARR STK) with
262.00 Race Trophy points. New in second place is Chilean Maximilian
Scheib with 198.80 points. Scheib celebrated his second win of the
season last weekend in the FIM CEV Superbike European Championship
(CEV). He is closely followed by Isle of Man winner Ian Hutchinson
(GB) in third, who has collected 198.50 points in the BMW Combined
Road Race Challenge (BMW RRC) so far this season (see full standings below).
The registration period for the 2016 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy has
closed – and this year brought new record numbers. After the
successful first two years with 69 and 104 participants respectively,
the Race Trophy has continued to grow in 2016. This season no less
than 129 BMW racers are taking part. They come from 25 different
countries on six continents and race for 82 teams in 27 different
championship classes worldwide.
FIM CEV Superbike European Championship in Albacete, Spain.
The fourth round of the 2016 FIM CEV Superbike European Championship
(CEV) was held in Albacete (ES) last weekend. Maximilian Scheib (CL)
once more proved to be one of the best riders in the series on his BMW
S 1000 RR. In race one the Targobank EasyRace SBK Team rider
celebrated his second win of the season, also setting the fastest race
lap. In the second heat, however, he crashed. Scheib was able to
re-join the race and crossed the line in ninth. In the championship he
is currently second, seven points behind the leader. In the BMW
Motorrad Race Trophy Scheib improved from 15th to second place.
Roberto Blazquez (ES / ARC Competición) finished the races in ninth
and 12th respectively. Scheib’s teammate Santiago Barragán (ES) had a
bad crash in the first qualifying session and suffered a fracture to
his tibia and fibula. We wish Santi a speedy recovery.
French Superbike Championship in Magny-Cours, France.
The French Superbike Championship (FSBK) held its fourth round of the
season in Magny-Cours (FR) last weekend. Kenny Foray (FR / Tecmas
Racing Team) claimed two more podium positions. Both races were
incredibly closely fought, with three riders battling at the front. At
the finish line the top three were separated by only a few tenths on
both occasions. In the first encounter Foray was second, only 0.1
seconds behind the winner. In race two the BMW rider set the fastest
race lap and crossed the line in third. In the championship
classification Foray is currently third. In the BMW Motorrad Race
Trophy the Frenchman improved from 17th to seventh.
French European Bikes Championship in Magny-Cours, France.
The BMW racers in the French European Bikes Championship (FR EU)
celebrated another top-three lockout for the BMW S 1000 RR at
Magny-Cours (FR) last weekend. The fourth round of the season was held
in the centre of France. In the second of the two races Florian
Brunet-Lugardon (FR / Gers Moto Vitesse Ordannaise) secured his first
win of the season. He was joined on the podium by fellow BMW riders
Tristan Guyot (FR) and Julien Brun (FR / JB Racing Team). Florian’s
brother, Cyril Brunet-Lugardon (FR / Gers Moto Vitesse Ordannaise),
completed the top five in fifth place.
Florian Brunet-Lugardon had already been on the podium in race one,
finishing second on his BMW S 1000 RR. David Bouvier (FR / Fast Team
Racing) was fourth. The overall championship is still led by BMW rider
Benjamin Colliaux (FR), who did not participate in Magny-Cours.
Florian Brunet-Lugardon improved to third.
Italian Superbike Championship in Mugello, Italy.
The second round of the 2016 Italian Superbike Championship (CIV)
took place in Mugello (IT) in the mountains in Tuscany last weekend.
It saw two podium results for the BMW S 1000 RR. In race one Matteo
Ferrari (IT / DMR Racing) was second, while Lorenzo Lanzi (IT / TMF)
claimed third place on the rostrum. In the second race Lanzi was the
highest placed BMW rider in fourth, while Ferrari crossed the line in
sixth. Alessandro Polita (IT / Tutapista) came home in sixth and
