Championship leads extended

Overview of last weekend’s results

The second half of the FIM Sidecar World Championship (SWC) started in Assen. In a thrilling race, Pekka Päivärinta and Kirsi Kainulainen claimed second place in their 44-Racing sidecar, powered by a BMW S 1000 RR motor. They crossed the finish line just 0.054 seconds behind the winners. This result allowed Päivärinta/Kainulainen to extend their lead in the world championship: they now have a total of 121 points, 26 ahead of their nearest challengers.

Last weekend, the British Superbike Championship (BSB) races took place on the Grand Prix circuit in Brands Hatch. The BMW S 1000 RRs secured a one-two result in the Superstock class (BSB STK) races: Taylor Mackenzie (Buildbase BMW Motorrad) claimed victory ahead of Ian Hutchinson (Tyco BMW). Mackenzie and Hutchinson strengthened their grip on first and second places in the championship standings.

The International Road Racing Championship (IRRC) visited Hořice, in the Czech Republic. The regular riders for this series were supported by guest starters and together they secured two top-five lock-outs for the BMW S 1000 RRs. Marek Červený was victorious in the first race, ahead of Didier Grams (G&G Racing) and team-mates Sébastien Le Grelle and Vincent Lonbois from Herpigny Motors BMW Motorrad Belux. In the second race, Grams made the most of his familiarity with the Czech circuit to leave his challengers behind and claim victory, six seconds ahead of Červený. They were followed again by Le Grelle and Lonbois. Kamil Holan (BMW Motorrad Czech Republic) finished in fifth place in both races.

As Červený competed on a wildcard entry, his result was not taken into account for the championship standings. Grams was twice awarded maximum points for a win, La Grelle was adjudged to have finished second on both occasions, and Lonbois third. These results allowed the BMW trio to move further ahead of their nearest challengers in the overall standings. Lonbois is in the lead, ahead of Le Grelle and Grams.
