Wins in England and Brazil

An overview of the weekend’s racing action

Racing on three continents: The BMW S 1000 RR riders were in action in Great Britain, Brazil and the USA last weekend.

Britain’s Oulton Park hosted the ninth round of the 2016 British Superbike Championship (BSB), in which there were three races in the Superbike class (BSB SBK). In race one, Richard Cooper (Buildbase BMW Motorrad) in sixth was the best-placed BMW rider. Michael Laverty (Tyco BMW Motorrad Racing) finished eighth, Lee Jackson (Buildbase BMW Motorrad) in tenth also made it into the top ten. In the second race, Jake Dixon (Royal Air Force Regular & Reserve) crossed the finish line in eighth place and as the best RR rider. Many-time BSB champion Ryuichi Kyionari, who will contest the remainder of the season on the BMW S 1000 RR of Smiths Racing BMW, finished tenth. In the third and final race of the weekend, four BMW riders finished in the top ten: Laverty was fourth, Cooper sixth, Jackson eighth and Christian Iddon (Tyco BMW Motorrad Racing) ninth. In the BSB SBK championship standings, Michael Laverty in seventh is now the best-placed BMW rider after nine race weekends. The Tyco BMW rider, who fell during the second race in Oulton Park, only very narrowly missed out on making it into the showdown of the top six riders.

The Superstock class (BSB STK) held its tenth race of the season – and a BMW rider claimed the top spot of the podium for the eighth time. A total of eight BMW S 1000 RRs finished in the top ten. It was a turbulent race, in which Joshua Elliott (Tyco BMW Motorrad Racing) got his first win of the season. Second place went to Adam Jenkinson (NEI Motorsport), who celebrated his first podium position and rounded off the RR one-two result. The two rivals for the title Taylor Mackenzie (Buildbase BMW Motorrad) and Ian Hutchinson (Tyco BMW Motorrad Racing) led the race until the final turn, when they fell in a close battle for the win. Mackenzie still leads the BSB STK championship standings with 178 points, followed by Hutchinson with 155 points.

In the SuperBike Series Brasil (BRSBK), Diego Pierluigi contested his first race on the BMW Motorrad Alex Barros Racing BMW S 1000 RR. The Argentinian was signed up by the team for the remaining races this year. It was a perfect debut: At the sixth round of the season in Brazilian Curitiba, he clinched pole position, set a new lap record and celebrated the win. His team-mate Sebastiano Zerbo finished fourth, Danilo Lewis (TecFil Racing Team) crossed the finish line in fifth place. Lewis still leads the championship standings.

After a two-month break, the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Series (AMA) also held its next round. Four BMW riders competed in the races in the New Jersey Motorsports Park. Cory West (Scheibe Racing) in 15th in the first race and his team-mate Steve Rapp in 12th in the second race had the best results.
