On top of the podium again

The weekend’s racing at a glance

BMW Motorrad Motosport racers were in action in four different racing series at the weekend, and they were successful in all four, claiming two wins and a total of nine podium finishes for the BMW S 1000 RR.

Albacete hosted the fourth race weekend of the season in the FIM CEV Superbike European Championship (CEV). Maximilian Scheib from the Targobank EasyRace SBK team won on the BMW S 1000 RR to take his place on the top step of the podium. He came home first in race one to claim his second win of the season. The Chilean rider crashed on lap six in race two. However, he climbed back onto his bike, continued, and ultimately finished ninth. Scheib is currently second in the championship. His team-mate Santiago Barragán had a painful weekend: he crashed in the first qualifying session and broke his shin and fibula. The Spaniard had an operation on Saturday.

In the French Superbike Championship (FSBK), fans in Magny-Cours were treated to two extremely exciting races, with three-way battles at the head of the field and victory decided by mere fractions of a second. In the thick of the action: Kenny Foray on the Tecmas Racing team’s BMW S 1000 RR. He finished second and third to make it onto the podium in both races. Foray was just 0.1 seconds behind the winner in race one, and came home a mere 0.8 seconds behind the winning bike in race two. After four race weekends, Foray is third in the championship.

The French European Bikes Championship (FR EU) was also in Magny-Cours at the weekend, and Florian Brunet-Lugardon (Gers Moto Vitesse Ordannaise) took his first win of the season. Having finished runner-up in the opening race, he went one better on his RR in race two. The second race of the weekend produced a BMW one-two-three: Brunet-Lugardon was joined on the podium by Tristan Guyot and Julien Brun. In the championship, Brunet-Lugardon climbed to third place. The overall leader is fellow BMW rider Benjamin Colliaux, who did not race in Magny-Cours.

Mugello hosted the second race weekend of the season in the Italian Superbike Championship (CIV) – and here too there were podiums for the BMW Motorrad Motorsport racers. Matteo Ferrari (DMR Racing) finished runner-up in race one, ahead of fellow BMW rider Lorenzo Lanzi (TNF) in third place.
