Successful on all tracks

Wins in Great Britain, Belgium and Malaysia

The BMW racers brought home wins on their BMW S 1000 RRs on every track on which they were in action last weekend. In Thruxton in Great Britain, Michael Laverty and Taylor MacKenzie won the Superbike and Superstock classes of the British Superbike Championship. Vincent Lonbois got another double victory in the International Road Racing Championship at his home event in Chimay, Belgium, and Colin Butler celebrated his first win of the season in the Malaysia Superbike Championship at the Sepang International Circuit.

Thruxton hosted the sixth race weekend of the British Superbike Championship (BSB). Michael Laverty (Tyco BMW) climbed onto the top step of the podium for the second time this season: He won the second of the two Superbike races (BSB SBK), after he had made it onto the podium in second place in race one. Laverty moved up into fourth place in the championship standings.

In the Superstock class (BSB STK) race, no fewer than eight BMW S 1000 RRs finished in the top nine spots. Taylor MacKenzie (Buildbase BMW Motorrad) celebrated his fourth win of the season. Joshua Elliott (Tyco BMW) in third place also finished on the podium. MacKenzie leads the championship ahead of Ian Hutchinson (Tyco BMW), who finished fourth in Thruxton.

Vincent Lonbois (Herpigny Motors BMW Motorrad Belux) continued his winning streak in the International Road Racing Championship (IRRC). Despite a fractured hand, the Belgian remained unbeaten at his home event in Chimay. This saw Lonbois increase his season tally to six wins in six races and extend his championship lead further. His team-mate Sébastien Le Grelle finished second on the podium in both races, thereby consolidating his second place overall in the championship. Didier Grams (G&G Racing) also clinched a podium position for finishing third in the first race.

And there was also reason to celebrate in Malaysia: At the second round of the 2016 Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSC) at the Sepang International Circuit, BMW rider Colin Butler (AP Racing) clinched his first win of the season. He won race two in the Superbike class (MSC SBK), after securing second place in the first race. The BMW S 1000 RR also finished on the podium in the Superstock class (MSC STK): Linggam Rammoo finished the second race in third place.
