Successful finale in Brazil and Malaysia

The weekend’s action at a glance

The 2016 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy drew to a close last weekend with the final rounds of the season in the SuperBike Series Brasil and the Malaysia Superbike Championship. And there was more success for riders on the BMW S 1000 RR in both São Paulo (Brazil) and Sepang (Malaysia).

São Paulo hosted two races on the ninth and final race weekend of the SuperBike Series Brasil (BRSBK). One rider, in particular, caught the eye: Alex Barros, former MotoGP star, long time record holder with 276 starts in the motorcycle world championship and boss of the BMW Motorrad Alex Barros Racing Team. He mounted the BMW S 1000 RR and took part in the race himself. And he did so with great success: Barros first finished runner-up to take his place on the podium in race one, before going on to win race two and set the fastest lap.

Danilo Lewis (TecFil Racing Team) joined Barros on the podium in São Paulo, courtesy of third place in the opening race. Lewis ended the season in second place in the overall standings.

Barros’ team-mate Diego Pierluigi rounded off a successful weekend for the BMW riders, finishing fourth in race one and third in race two.

The BMW racers in the Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSC) had a packed programme as their season drew to a close. No fewer than four races were held in both the Superbike (MSC SBK) and Superstock (MSC STK) classes at the final round in Sepang. The BMW S 1000 RR had another podium finish to celebrate: Colin Butler (AP Racing) finished third in race four of the Superbike class. Butler ended the season third in the MSC SBK standings.
