Wins in Hungary and Canada

An overview of the weekend’s race action

BMW Motorrad Motorsport racers continued their winning ways last weekend. In the FIM Sidecar World Championship (SWC), Pekka Päivärinta and Kirsi Kainulainen claimed an historic victory to move to the top of the world championship table. In the Canadian Superbike Championship (CSBK), Jordan Szoke remains unbeaten thanks to another brace of wins, while Ben Young joined him on the podium after both races. There were also two podium finishes for BMW Superstock riders in the British Superbike Championship (BSB).

Just one week after the race in Rijeka, the FIM Sidecar World Championship (SWC) was at the Pannonia Ring in Hungary for the third race weekend of the season. In Saturday’s sprint race, Finnish BMW duo Pekka Päivärinta/Kirsi Kainulainen (44-Racing) claimed an historic win: this was the first time a woman had ever stood on the very top step of the podium after a world championship circuit race. The pair then finished runner-up in the gold race on Sunday. Päivärinta/Kainulainen have taken the lead in the world championship on the back of these results.

BMW rider Jordan Szoke remains undefeated in the Canadian Superbike Championship (CSBK). The second race weekend of the season, in St. Eustache, featured two races – and Szoke won both for the Mopar Express Lane BMW Superbike Team on his BMW S 1000 RR. Szoke’s record this season now reads: three wins from three races. He also extended his lead in the championship. Fellow BMW rider Ben Young (Ben Young Racing) also had cause to celebrate in St. Eustache. He finished third in both races to join Szoke on the podium.

The British Superbike Championship (BSB) was in Knockhill, Scotland, at the weekend. Three of the top four in the Superstock class (BSB STK) were BMW riders. Taylor MacKenzie (Buildbase BMW Motorrad) came home first, but was subsequently relegated three positions by the race stewards for overtaking under a yellow flag and an unsafe manoeuvre. McKenzie was eventually given fourth place, while second and third places went to fellow BMW riders Ian Hutchinson (Tyco BMW Motorrad Racing) and Michael Rutter (Bathams SMT). Mackenzie continues to lead the championship with a 35-point advantage.

The current leader in the Superbike IDM (IDM), Mathieu Gines, made a guest appearance in the MFJ Superbike All Japan Road Race Championship (MFJ) at the weekend. He was supporting the Tras 135HP team in the 120-mile endurance race in Sugo. The teams could use either one or two riders on their bikes. Gines and regular rider Yuta Kodama finished 13th on the number 135 RR. The best result on the RR came courtesy of Daisaku Sakai (Rosetta BMW Motorrad39), who finished 11th.
