Reactions to a tests during Jerez de la Frontera and Portimão.


Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director: “In
general, we pull a certain end from a tests. The continue was
good, and that helped us to work off many of a formerly defined
exam points. Unfortunately, Tom’s detrimental pile-up during Jerez set us behind a
bit, yet it did not shorten a programme significantly. The tests
have also shown that we are already arguable during this early theatre of
a project, when many new tools are commissioned on a bike – even
yet we usually have 6 days of contrast behind us. As for a lap
times, we can also be utterly satisfied. We were means to constantly
boost and pull certain conclusions. But of march we take behind a
lot of data, ideas and so work home. Now it is time to clearly
conclude a final selection for a initial races and to be prepared by
8th February. Today a motorcycles will make their approach to Australia.”


Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK
“The swell and growth of a new BMW S 1000 RR
has been unequivocally certain so far. From a corruption exam during Almeria we
determined a good bottom environment that gave a transparent instruction to work
on. The SMR group and BMW Motorrad Motorsport engineers have finished a
good pursuit together in removing a Superbike to a good level. Overall I
am feeling certain with a approach a tests went. Both riders worked
their approach by a exam programme.”


Tom Sykes: “I only wish to contend a large appreciate we to the
whole BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team. At these tests, we’ve continued and
progressed in a unequivocally certain way, creation a large step in the
growth of a BMW S 1000 RR. We have been operative on a balance
of a bike, perplexing out opposite parameters to see what feedback we
get, and also contrast new components for a brakes, cessation and
electronics. So in general, a lot has been lonesome and it’s another
step closer to a WorldSBK opener in Phillip Island subsequent month.”


Markus Reiterberger: “I am utterly happy with a way
a exam went. We tested a lot on a brakes, cessation and the
wiring and done good swell with that. We also worked on my
chair position and done a change on my rear-shock and on Sunday at
Portimão we was feeling unequivocally certain and my path time softened from
event to session. Monday unfortunately we did not have a same
feeling, yet we collected a lot of information from a exam to work with. I
have a good group around me so we am assured we will get a good
feeling on a bike in Phillip Island.”
