The RR continues its winning streak

An overview of all of the weekend’s results

It was another successful weekend for the BMW S 1000 RR riders: They were in action in nine race series on four continents, and brought home six wins and a total of 18 podium positions.

There was a full programme in Donington Park (GB) with the races in the MOTUL FIM World Superbike Championship (WorldSBK), the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup (STK1000) and the Superstock class of the British Superbike Championship (BSB STK). Raffaele De Rosa on his Althea BMW Racing Team RR celebrated his second win of the season in the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup. This saw him re-take the lead in the championship rankings. And De Rosa also returned to the top of the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy.

After the magnificent top-five shut out in Brands Hatch, the RR riders in the BSB STK picked up where they left off in Donington a week later. As part of the championship weekend, the Superstock class of the British Superbike Championship held its fourth race of the season. Four BMW S 1000 RRs crossed the finish line in the first four places: Taylor MacKenzie celebrated his third win of the season, beating Hudson Kennaugh and Richard Cooper, who made a guest appearance in the BSB STK. Cooper was later disqualified from the classification for violating the technical regulations, and Josh Elliott moved up from fourth to third place. In the championship standings, the top four spots are held by BMW riders: MacKenzie leads, followed by Elliott, Kennaugh and Ian Hutchinson.

The second race weekend of the 2016 FIM CEV Superbike European Championship (CEV) was held at MotorLand Aragón. There were four podium positions for the RR: Santiago Barragán and Maximilian Scheib each got one second and one third place. Scheib still leads the overall standings, followed by Barragán. The races in the French Superbike Championship (FSBK) and the French European Bikes Championship (FR EU) in Lédenon were also a success. In the FSBK, Kenny Foray celebrated his most successful race weekend of the season so far, with one win and a second place. The BMW S 1000 RR riders were dominant in the FR EU, picking up a top-four and a top-five shut out. The BMW squad was headed by Benjamin Colliaux, who won both races and, in doing so, took the lead in the championship classification. Colliaux is now second in the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy, behind front-runner De Rosa.

The Canadian Superbike Championship (CSBK) kick-started its 2016 season in Shannonville, Canada. Reigning champion Jordan Szoke on his BMW S 1000 RR got the win in the opening race. His fellow BMW rider Matt McBride also made it onto the podium, finishing in third place.
