Double podium in Schleiz

Overview of last weekend’s results

Japan, Germany, Italy, South Africa: last weekend, the BMW Motorrad Motorsport racers were in action in four countries, spread across three continents.

The FIM Endurance World Championship race took place at Suzuka, Japan. That was the location for the famous “Suzuka 8 Hours”, the third race of the season. The race is the most important and most prestigious event in the Japanese race calendar, and the domestic manufacturers have just one aim: to win. The works teams had strengthened their line-ups with some well-known riders from various championships, such as MotoGP and the Superbike World Championship. Eight BMW Motorrad Motorsport customer teams were also among the almost 70-strong starting field. The best-placed BMW S 1000 RR privateer team was Team Tras 135HP, who normally compete in the MFJ Superbike All Japan Road Race Championship (MFJ) and were guesting in the EWC. Yuta Kodama, Gary Johnson and Ryosuke Katahira finished in 16th place. Directly behind them, the RR of Team Motorrad Rennsport (Koji Teramoto, Pedro Vallcaneras and Toshitane Soma) claimed 17th position.

At the weekend, the historic “Schleiz Triangle” circuit hosted the fifth round of the 2016 Superbike IDM / International German Championship (IDM). There were two podium finishes for the BMW S 1000 RR. In the first of two races, Mathieu Gines (Van Zon-Remeha-BMW) secured second place. In race two, Bastien Mackels reached the podium with the Team Wilbers-BMW-Racing RR. The Belgian rider finished in third place overall, and second in the Superbike class. The second race was a much more dramatic affair for Gines: a rider in front of him clipped a pylon, sending it spinning through the air. This hit the front wheel of Gines’ bike while he was going at high speed. It was impossible for him to avoid a crash. As he fell, he suffered fractures to his forearm.

The BMW Motorrad Motorsport racers were also in action this weekend in the Italian Superbike Championship (CIV) in Misano, and at the Red Star Raceway near Delmas, South Africa, in the South African SuperGP Champions Trophy (RSA SBK).
