An overview of the weekend’s racing action

As part of the “German Speedweek Oschersleben”, two world championships visited the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben at the weekend: the FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) and the FIM Sidecar World Championship (SWC). The BMW Motorrad Motorsport racers had a successful weekend in both championships.

The “8 Hours EWC Oschersleben” marked the season finale of the 2016 Endurance World Championship.

The Sidecar World Championship held its penultimate event of the season in Oschersleben. In both races, the Finnish duo of Pekka Päivärinta/Kirsi Kainulainen (44-Racing) finished on the podium with their sidecar powered by a BMW S 1000 RR engine. With third and second place, they defended their championship lead: The Finnish pair now head into the finale in Donington Park, Britain on 17th September with a lead of 23 points.

The FIM CEV Superbike European Championship (CEV) held its fifth race weekend of the season in Portimão, Portugal. Maximilian Scheib finished in second place on the podium on his Targobank EasyRace SBK team RR in both races. The man from Chile is second in the championship standings; with three races to go, he trails the leader by 27 points.

The British Superbike Championship (BSB) stopped off in the tradition-steeped Cadwell Park at the weekend.
