Goiânia, Brazil, 16/11/2016, BMW Motorrad Race Trophy
The penultimate event of the 2016 SuperBike Series Brasil (BRSBK) season was held in Goiânia, Brazil at the weekend – and the BMW Motorrad Motorsport racers were extremely successful once again. The haul: Pole position, two wins and a second place for the BMW S 1000 RR. This time, instead of just one race on the schedule, two races were contested. Twice the action, twice the success for the BMW riders.
In qualifying on Saturday, championship leader Danilo Lewis set the best time on the TecFil Racing team RR. The Brazilian thereby claimed his first pole position in the series. The two races on Sunday were dominated by difficult conditions: It had rained and the track took a very long time to dry. But that didn’t stop the BMW riders from continuing the RR’s run of success in the BRSBK.
They celebrated a one-two result in race one on Sunday morning. Diego Pierluigi won for the third time in a row on the BMW Motorrad Alex Barros Racing RR. The triumph was rounded off by Marco Solorza, who also competed on an RR for the JC Racing team and secured second place. Lewis crossed the finish line in sixth place. Then in race two it was Solorza who finished on the top step of the podium, so claiming the second victory of the day for the RR. Lewis finished fourth to pick up further valuable championship points and defend his overall lead. He now has a lead of four points going into the finale that will be held in Curitiba on 4th December.
