The penultimate event of the Alpe Adria Road Racing Championship was held at the Hungaroring in Budapest last weekend. However, the sporting action was overshadowed by a tragic incident. Slovenian Yamaha rider Berto Camlek was killed in a crash in the second Superbike race. “RIP Berto Camlek – it was an honour to ride with you,” said BMW rider and championship leader Roland Resch, offering his sympathies. “I would like to extend my sincere condolences to his family and friends!” We would also like to take this opportunity to offer our deepest sympathy to his relatives.
The opening race in the Superbike class (AARR SBK) was won by Lukáš Pešek (BMW Motorrad Czech), with Resch (Reitwagen-Racing) second. Pešek’s team-mate Martin Choy finished fourth. In race one of the Superstock class (AARR), Michal Prášek (Rohac and Fejta motoracing team) and Michal Šembera (WILLI Race Team) finished runner-up and third to take their places on the podium. Michal Prášek won race two, with Marek Szkopek (LRP Poland) coming home third.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway hosted the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Series (AMA) at the weekend. The penultimate event of the AMA season formed part of the support programme for the MotoGP World Championship.
BMW privateer Steve Rapp finished ninth overall and fifth in the Superstock class (AMA STK) in the first of the two races. The second race was suspended due to heavy rain, and the positions at the end of lap 15 taken as the final result. Rapp was 16th overall and tenth in the Superstock class.
