Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport
Director: 
“Already during a final stages of a past
season, we have been operative intensively on a serve growth of
a BMW S 1000 RR for 2020. Our initial winter exam in Jerez de la
Frontera has been unequivocally productive. Among other things, we were means to
exam several framework variants, new startle absorber elements, a operation of
tyre options, and electronic updates. Tom had a few teenager issues at
a start of day one, though they were resolved fast and we were able
to finish a bustling programme, that enclosed many exam points.
Eugene initial had to find his feet on a RR, though was shortly means to
start to configure a bike to his possess personal requirements. We are
happy with a swell he has done during his initial exam with a RR. We
contingency now analyse a vast volume of information and extensive rider
feedback we have received, that will assistance establish a instruction we
will take to start a 2020 season.”

 

Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK
Team:
“We’ve finished dual full days of contrast with Tom and
Eugene; we got by an awful lot of work. We are generally pleased
with a outcome. We’ve found a transparent instruction for Tom on his chassis
set-up that lets us pierce brazen in a specific instruction we know he
will be gentle with. We worked by a large list so we’re really
gratified for Tom. Eugene had to take some time to get used to the
wiring package on a BMW S 1000 RR and over a Christmas break,
we will serve work on a plan for him. He was removing quicker and
quicker though usually until a indicate where he was prepared to push. But we
are unequivocally still happy with his initial test. He was using consistent
times and we are confident with a progress. Overall, we are happy
going into a break. We had no vital issues and we get a bikes
prepared now and come behind for a tests in January.”

 

Tom Sykes: “Definitely we consider we had a unequivocally strong
exam and credit to all a BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team. We had a big
list to go by and they were operative so hard. we am unequivocally satisfied
with what we achieved. We unequivocally attempted a lot on a BMW S 1000 RR,
really done swell and for me now we can go into a winter
feeling happy with a performance. Certainly on competition tyres as well,
we found utterly a step and also over a distance. The bike was working
easily and we apparently attempted a subordinate tyre during a end. It was
implausible though after dual clever sectors we unfortunately done a small
mistake in a hairpin and crashed. But we was meddlesome in how the
bike feels with high hold and we also went for another path after the
crash. For me that was good since we have additional information going
into a winter and a guys can keep working. So for me that was a
good exam with a unchanging lane to work by a unequivocally large list and
that’s what we indispensable all season. Thanks to a whole group and the
guys behind during a bureau for operative so tough to make things possible.
we consider a preference to skip a Aragón exam paid off since it was a
unequivocally structured exam and we worked unequivocally well.”

 

Eugene Laverty: “Overall, it was a good test. we think
we can tell I’ve got a bike with a best framework I’ve ever ridden. The
approach a bike turns and enters a dilemma is incredible. It’s
startling only how earthy it is to float right now. We have to get
a energy underneath control for a dilemma exit. Once we can get that it
will be even some-more rideable. Right now we can combat it for one path if
we wanted to get a path time though it’s contrast so it’s not necessary. So
we’ve been operative and only perplexing to tame a savage a small bit so
we can get a bike that is going to be gentle for 20 laps. The
framework is implausible and that’s a critical thing. The bottom of the
bike is good, now it’s only another fine-tuning of a electronics.”
