FIM EWC: Markus Reiterberger in Sepang with a BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team.

Munich. Markus Reiterberger (GER) will join a BMW Motorrad
World Endurance Team as a third supplement for turn dual of a 2019/20
FIM Endurance World Championship (FIM EWC) during Sepang (MAS). The
25-year-old will swap in a #37 BMW S 1000 RR saddle with
Kenny Foray (FRA) and Ilya Mikhalchik (UKR). The 8-hour competition at
Sepang takes place on 14th December.

 

The BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team is contesting a entrance season
in a FIM EWC with a newly-developed continuation chronicle of a BMW S
1000 RR. Foray, Mikhalchik and Julian Puffe (GER) finished an
considerable third in a opening competition of a season, a Bol d’Or during Le
Castellet (FRA) in September.

 

Reiterberger knows a Sepang circuit, is unequivocally informed with a RR,
and has copiousness of believe in continuation racing, carrying raced for BMW
teams in a FIM EWC on countless occasions in new years. He caught
a eye during Oschersleben (GER) in 2014, when he took stick position on
a Penz13.com group run Superstock RR. That was a initial time a
Superstock had ever started an FIM EWC competition from initial place on the
grid. Reiterberger finished runner-up during a Bol d’Or with a same
group in 2017.

 

“We are gratified to have Markus on house with a BMW Motorrad World
Endurance Team during Sepang,” pronounced BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director Marc
Bongers. “We are assured that, in partnership with his team-mates
Kenny and Ilya, Markus will be means to use his resources of believe in
terms of a RR and continuation racing, as good as his believe of the
circuit, to assistance us to grasp good formula during Sepang. Then there is
a fact that he knows Werner Daemen’s group unequivocally well, that will be
another advantage. The competition during Sepang has a unequivocally clever field, as it
acts as subordinate for a 8-hour competition in Suzuka. We are well
positioned with this quick and gifted trio.”

 

“I am unequivocally happy that Markus will be roving for us during Sepang,” said
Team Manager Werner Daemen. “With his believe gained in the
Superbike World Championship and his talent, he will support Kenny and
Ilya superbly. Markus was impossibly quick in Sepang in 2016. Back
then, he roughly finished on a lectern in a Superbike World
Championship. Maybe he competence make a disproportion for us. We used the
final turn of a Spanish Superbike Championship during Jerez de la
Frontera to ready for a subsequent tour in a Endurance World
Championship, with courtesy to a set-up of a bike and a Dunlop
tyres. we am assured that we will be means to be clever with a bike.
Perhaps fitness will play a purpose again, as it did during Le Castellet.”

 

“I would like to appreciate Werner and a group for a event to
competition during Sepang,” pronounced Reiterberger. “I am already unequivocally looking
brazen to Sepang. It is an glorious circuit and we was on for my best
outcome in a Superbike World Championship there in 2016. we was
using a protected fourth until shortly before a finish, when we had to
retire due to a technical issue. With that in mind, we have fond
memories of Sepang. The lane offers copiousness of hold and we consider we are
well-placed to do good with a bike. we have dual clever team-mates and
together we will do all we can to get a tip result.”

 

The group will continue a preparations with another exam in Sepang
in a week before a 8-hour race.
