MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship in Alcañiz, Spain.

 

After a abroad races in Australia and Thailand, a MOTUL FIM
Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK) has returned to Europe. The
third spin of a 2017 deteriorate was hold during MotorLand Aragón near
Alcañiz in a north-east of Spain.

 

Althea BMW Racing Team supplement Jordi Torres (ESP) competent sixth on
a grid for Saturday’s race. He forsaken a few positions during a start
though fought his approach behind towards a front and crossed a line in
sixth position. According to a new regulations, a outcome meant
third on a front quarrel for Sunday’s race. In a misunderstanding of a start
– with a tip placed riders from competition one pulling from behind –
a Spaniard mislaid positions. But repeating his attainment of Saturday,
Torres overtook several opponents, finishing seventh in competition two.

 

His Althea BMW Racing team-mate Markus Reiterberger (GER) had bad
fitness in Saturday’s Superpole 1 when he crashed with usually a few minutes
to go. He had competent 13th on a grid, though his bike was
damaged. The final notation repairs in a brief time accessible forced
him to start Saturday’s competition from a back. The German finished a great
quip on his BMW S 1000 RR and came home in 12th
position. In Sunday’s race, Reiterberger was 16th.

 

Jordi Torres: “We finish this weekend with a good
feeling since this is a really formidable track. For me it was a
special weekend as we returned to Europe and it was my home round. We
all gave a best and also a support of a BMW Motorrad Motorsport
engineers was really helpful. Unfortunately a start in both races was
not a best and we were not too rival in a initial laps. But
path by path we found a stroke and we was means to pass a lot of
riders and to locate adult again. That was good and important. The whole
group worked really good and we did not have any problems with a BMW S
1000 RR, so it was good.”

 

Markus Reiterberger: “The weekend was a bit difficult
for me. We started flattering good on Friday, were rival and made
good stairs in a right direction. Especially on Saturday morning, my
BMW S 1000 RR felt good. In Superpole 1, we was fibbing in third for most
of a time and went out for another quick path to serve urge my
time. In any box we would have had a gait for Superpole 2 but
unfortunately we fell – substantially since of a cold front tyre. During
a outlap, several riders had attempted to stay during my behind circle in order
to grasp a decent path time. we had to get absolved of them all and also to
wait for a transparent track. The other riders who also waited crashed in
a same dilemma as well. It was a empathize that this prevented me from
subordinate for Superole 2 as we am assured that a position in a top
10 on a grid would have been possible. Starting from a really back,
we still managed to urge to 12th in Saturday’s race,
that was okay. Sunday’s competition was a bit some-more difficult. The breeze was
most stronger and we opted for a opposite behind tyre. That incited out
to be a softened choice for a opening laps though as a competition went on,
we started to onslaught a bit, could not spin a bike scrupulously and
rise a feeling for a bike. Now we will do some contrast and we hope
that we will find a approach into a right direction.”

 

 

FIM Superstock 1000 European Championship in Alcañiz, Spain.

 

At MotorLand Aragon (ESP), a BMW teams and a engineers of BMW
Motorrad Motorsport kicked off a deteriorate in a new FIM Superstock
1000 European Championship (STK1000) that replaces a former FIM
Superstock 1000 Cup. No fewer than 8 BMW S 1000 RR riders took to
a lane in a initial competition of a season. The highest-placed among

a line in fifth on his RR. Points also went to Sébastien Suchet (SUI
/ Berclaz Racing Team) and a immature German Julian Puffe (MF84 Althea)
who finished a competition in 13th and 14th
respectively. Another new member in a BMW family is former Grand
Prix and WorldSBK supplement Federico Sandi (ITA), who competes for the
Berclaz Racing Team. After a successful exam with his BMW S 1000 RR,
he directed for a tip outcome though bad fitness prevented him from
demonstrating his skills and performance.

 

Marco Faccani: “I can be gratified with today’s result,
we came home in fifth and have scored some points, that was important
deliberation we still have some shoulder pain after a prior injury.
I’ve got to know a bike softened and consider we’ve finished a good job,
improving event by session. In a race, we maybe didn’t have the
gait that we had in use though I’m though gratified with fifth,
and will be doing my best to urge on this during a subsequent rounds.”

 

Julian Puffe: “My start wasn’t bad though another rider
cut my line during a initial dilemma and we mislaid a lot of places. we then
found it tough to build adult a stroke and finished a few mistakes though path by
path things softened and in a end, we finished fourteenth. For my
initial competition that’s OK though I’m certain we can do most better, as a team
and bike are operative well. We will work to urge and get faster step
by step, starting from Assen…”

 

Federico Sandi: “I was flattering happy with a set-up
resolution we found during a warm-up. Unfortunately we had a small
problem during a start, when a bike stopped quickly after 50 or 60
metres. This cost me a few positions though we was means to pass several
riders and after 3 laps we was behind a guys that eventually
finished in a tip positions. But afterwards all of a remarkable my behind wheel
sealed and we crashed. We still have to analyse since this happened. For
certain we am a unhappy since a intensity for me and a group is
very, really high. We can quarrel during a really front though this time we go
home dull handed. It is a pity, though we am certain that in Assen we can
urge with another step brazen with a wiring and also with
a engine. we will do my best there and pull to quarrel during a front. I
like a BMW S 1000 RR a lot. It is quick though we still have some work
to do. The weekend did not finish good though we will try with a clean
piece in Assen.”

 

 

British Superbike Championship in Donington, Great Britain.

 

The prolonged winter has also come to an finish in a British Superbike
Championship (BSB). For a 2017 screen raiser, a BMW teams and BMW
Motorrad Motorsport experts trafficked to Donington Park (GBR) – and
kicked off a deteriorate with dual lectern finishes for a BMW S 1000 RR.

 

In a initial of a dual races in a Superbike category (BSB SBK), Tyco
BMW supplement Christian Iddon (GBR) finished third on a soap-box with his
RR. He was immediately followed by Peter Hickman (GBR / Smiths Racing)
in fourth. Davide Giugliano (ITA) finished his initial competition on a Tyco
BMW S 1000 RR in 13th and Jakub Smrz (CZE / Lloyd

14th. In competition two, Iddon missed out a lectern by usually a
few tenths of a second, entrance home in fourth. Hickman and Giugliano
were eighth and ninth respectively. Smrz finished a points
positions in 15th.

 

Christian Iddon: “It’s a good plain start to the
deteriorate for us and a good prerogative for a group and a boys in the
garage as I’ve given them a tough few weeks. I’m gratified to start the
deteriorate with a lectern finish for Tyco BMW and give all a sponsors a
good showing. We still have work to do to overpass that opening to a front
guys, though it’s really practicable and we can leave spin one with a lot of confidence.”

 

Davide Giugliano: “Some of a racing was a bit of a
warn and a few of a guys got really close, though that is okay. I’ve
schooled a lot about a championship currently and also a Tyco BMW, so
we can go to a subsequent spin and uncover a small bit some-more of my possess style
and we will also not be fearful to make some good passes on my Tyco BMW
S 1000 RR.”

 

In a Superstock category (BSB STK) all 3 races this weekend saw a
BMW S 1000 RR supplement on a lectern as good as several BMW racers in the
tip 8.

 

Race one and dual on Saturday were total to an “endurance race”. In
both legs, 18 laps were finished and half points were awarded on both
occasions. After competition one, a teams had 10 mins in a array lane
to change tyres, refuel and ready a bikes for a second part.
Michael Rutter (GBR / Bathams SMT) rode his RR to third on a first

Hutchinson’s spin to step onto a lectern in third. In this nail
satirical thriller, he crossed a line usually 0.5 seconds behind the
winner. Rutter and Rouse followed on their RRs in fourth and fifth
place. Adam Jenkinson (GBR / Northern Escalator Instrallations) was seventh.

 

Ian Hutchinson: “Not a ideal weekend by any means
though we substantially upheld some-more riders in that competition on Saturday than we have
finished in a best partial of a deteriorate before. In Sunday’s competition we grabbed
a podium, that is always my idea for a weekend, though we wish to be
winning races and pulling tough with a championship challenge. The Tyco
BMW S 1000 RR has copiousness of intensity again this year and I’m looking
brazen to a subsequent few rounds before a highway racing deteriorate starts.”
