Buriram. On foe Sunday during a ‘Chang International Circuit’
in Buriram, Thailand, a BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team continued to
collect profitable information with a code new BMW S 1000 RR. For a two
riders, Tom Sykes (GBR) and Markus Reiterberger (GER), warm-up,
Superpole Race and foe dual were on a FIM Superbike World
Championship (WorldSBK) programme. They finished some-more kilometres
underneath foe conditions to benefit serve knowledge for a development

eleventh place, while Sykes had to retire due to a technical problem.

In a Superpole foe on early Sunday afternoon Sykes took the
dwindle in tenth position while Reiterberger finished 14th.
Sykes was therefore tenth on a grid for foe two, hold in a late
afternoon internal time, while Reiterberger started from 12th

Quotes after foe dual during Buriram.

 

Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director: “The
grid positions after a Superpole foe met a expectations and were
okay. The second categorical race, however, was rather unsatisfactory for us,
with Tom timid and Markus carrying utterly a opening to a front. Tom had
to stop due to a slipping clutch. We will now analyse in fact what
caused it. Markus was means to collect a few points by finishing
11th. Now we need to take advantage of a brief mangle to
finish a subsequent updates during a factory, holding a subsequent stairs on our
approach forward.”

 

Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK
Team:
“Tom had a good Superpole race. Again, we were
focusing on a tip 10 positions. He got a unequivocally good start, got
pushed far-reaching a small bit on spin one though worked his approach through. By
a time he was in spin three, he was in a clever position. He settled
in with a good slight and got a clever finish. Tom’s categorical race
unfortunately unexpected came to a close. He had staid into a good
rhythm, a lane was only entrance to him, a path times had started to
dump though afterwards unfortunately he had a technical emanate that forsaken him
out. Markus unequivocally struggled currently anticipating a gentle bike, which
has been a problem all weekend. He could not find a good feeling with
a chassis, generally with a front end. Until we can give him that
genuine gentle feel he’s struggling to unequivocally pull to tighten a gap
towards a front guys. We have to be happy still altogether for the
weekend in Buriram – unsatisfactory with a DNF for Tom – though we think
we still go divided with a lot of positives and are looking brazen to Aragón.”

 

Tom Sykes: “After a integrate of laps we felt that
something was wrong. It’s a bit frustrating since we had done a
change to a bike and it unequivocally felt good. On a certain side I’m
unequivocally astounded to come here to this foe circuit and to be inside
a tip 10 with a waste on a straight, so to be inside the
tip 10 is unequivocally earnest in my opinion. Honestly, in a approach
and entrance of many corners, a framework and a set-up on a BMW S
1000 RR is unequivocally an advantage compared to a foe so overall
there are utterly a lot of positives for me to take. The disastrous is
obviously, as we saw during Phillip Island, that we are giving a lot away
on a straights though hopefully that won’t be a problem anymore in the
not so apart future.”

 

Markus Reiterberger: “In a Superpole race, we had a
good start and was right behind Tom after a initial corner. we also
had good battles on a opening laps, though afterwards another supplement almost
got me off a bike and we had to go straight. As a result, we mislaid six
positions. When we afterwards done a mistake, a foe was some-more or reduction over
for me. In a categorical foe we struggled with a emanate that has been
causing us problems all weekend: that we could not check a bike
good adequate and we had no feeling for a front of a bike. We tried
to get a hold on that and softened things step by step, but
unfortunately it only was not adequate over a distance, especially
when it got hotter and a hold turn went down. Our opening towards the
front especially formula from a time mislaid on a straights, though I’m not
disturbed about that. Here we trust a guys in a bureau that we get
some-more power, and afterwards a formula will be improved as well. But we have to
continue to work on removing certainty in a front circle when turning
in and in a corners.”
