Triple title celebrations

An overview of the weekend’s racing action

The BMW Motorrad Motorsport racers continue to collect titles: Three more were added to the collection last weekend. Vincent Lonbois was crowned champion in the International Road Racing Championship (IRRC), Lukáš Pešek in the Superbike class of the Alpe Adria Road Racing Championship (AARR SBK) and Benjamin Colliaux in the French European Bikes Championship (FR EU). In addition to the triple title win, the BMW S 1000 RR riders picked up eight wins and a total of 19 podium positions at the weekend. This year, the BMW riders have already claimed a total of seven titles. The BMW Motorrad Race Trophy season will end on 4th December 2016.

The finale of the 2016 IRRC was held as part of the legendary Frohburg triangle race near Leipzig. The battle for the IRRC title was contested by the two Herpigny Motors BMW Motorrad Belux team-mates, Vincent Lonbois and Sébastien Le Grelle. In the end it was Lonbois, who had led the championship right from the start of the season, who claimed the title. Le Grelle finished in second place overall, Didier Grams (G&G Motorsport) had already claimed third place overall ahead of the finale.

The field at the 54th staging of the Frohburg triangle race consisted of regular riders and numerous guest starters. Rico Penzkofer’s team penz13.com BMW Motorradsport competed with the British road racers Michael Rutter, Gary Johnson and Danny Webb. The BMW S 1000 RR riders dominated the field and secured a top seven and a top six lock-out result. Rutter was unbeatable in Frohburg: He won both of the IRRC races on the Penz13.com RR. Lonbois and Le Grelle each claimed one second place and one third place on the podium. Grams was in the lead when he fell in the first race, he finished in fourth place in the second race.

The Alpe Adria Road Racing Championship (AARR) held its finale at the Slovakia Ring near Bratislava. In the Superbike class (AARR ABK), a perfect weekend saw Lukáš Pešek ride to the title win. On his BMW Motorrad CSEU team’s RR, the Czech claimed pole position in both races, celebrated a double win and rode the fastest race lap both times – and with a new lap record in race two. In the Superstock class (AARR STK), Michal Prášek (Rohac and Feijta motoracing team) had secured the championship at the penultimate round of the season. He finished in second place on his RR in both races at the Slovakia Ring.

Kenny Foray also had a perfect weekend at the season finale of the French Superbike Championship (FSBK) in Albi. The Tecmas Racing Team rider’s result was also: two pole positions, two wins and two fastest race laps. Foray ended the season in second place in the championship standings.

Benjamin Colliaux (Team Cherot Moto Sport) claimed the third title of the weekend, in the French European Bikes Championship (FR EU). The contenders were two BMW S 1000 RR riders in this series as well – Colliaux and Florian Brunet-Lugardon (Gers Moto Vitesse Ordannaise). Brunet-Lugardon celebrated two wins at the finale, but one third place and one second place were enough for Colliaux to win the title. Florian’s brother Cyril also finished on the podium in Albi. In the second race, in which there was a top five lock-out for the RR, he finished in third place.

The Superbike IDM / International German Championship (IDM) held its season finale at the weekend. There were two podium positions in the Superstock class (IDM STK) for the RR riders at the Hockenheimring. In the first race, Pepijn Bijsterbosch (Van Zon-Remeha-BMW) finished in third place on the podium (fifth overall), in race two his team mate Jan Bühn claimed this position (also fifth overall).

The MFJ Superbike All Japan Road Race Championship (MFJ) was in Okayama at the weekend. Since the events in Autopolis had to be cancelled due to earthquake damage, two races were held in Okayama. The best BMW positions were claimed by Shinya Takeishi (SYNCEDGE 4413 Racing) and Daisaku Sakai (Rosetta Motorrad39) in fifth and ninth in the second race.

The BMW S 1000 RR riders were also in action in South Africa at the weekend. The seventh round of the South African SuperGP Champions Trophy (RSA SBK) was held at the Dezzi Raceway, south of Durban. The best-placed BMW rider was Lance Isaacs (Lance Isaacs Racing), who finished both races in sixth place.
