International Circuit” in Buriram (THA) for turn dual of a 2019
FIM Superbike World Championship.


The team, including riders Tom Sykes (GBR) and Markus Reiterberger

launched in Nov 2018, and with a highway bikes as a basis, BMW
Motorrad Motorsport and a BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team had usually three
months to ready a competition bikes for a Superbike World Championship.
The season-opener during Phillip Island constructed a initial good results,
on that a group is now looking to build: Both riders finished within
a points positions in both races.

Quotes brazen of a Buriram races.


Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director: “We
have taken a lot of certain things from Australia, though we have also
clearly seen in a races where we are still behind and that areas we
need to concentration on in terms of serve development. Due to a short
time between a dual competition weekends a fact that a apparatus has not
returned to a group domicile between Australia and Thailand, we
will usually move certain technical updates. These are directed primarily
during a trustworthiness for a arriving conflict with a heat. We look
brazen to a subsequent eventuality where a atmosphere is always great, and we
will be means to accumulate some-more critical knowledge there on a approach forward.”


Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK
“It’s going to be a unequivocally tough weekend for everyone
with a temperatures mountainous during 40 degrees Celsius, though we are
assured we can continue a good work in Australia and move some
new ideas to a list to make another step brazen for Buriram. The
group has finished some good work in-between Phillip Island and Buriram
that we can exercise here and hopefully urge a gait come the
race, that is a categorical aim.”


Tom Sykes: “It’s always good to come and competition during the
Buriram circuit here in Thailand. Obviously my categorical concentration this weekend
is still to continue a growth of a new BMW S 1000 RR. I’m
feeling unequivocally assured in some ways though given a knowledge in the
competition during Phillip Island one of my few concerns is a dual long
straights given a speed deficit. Despite that, a BMW S 1000 RR
framework is unequivocally good and is able of holding on a rest of the
field. we am looking brazen to starting a competition weekend and wish that
we can continue a good swell done over a winter exam period.”


Markus Reiterberger: “I unequivocally like Thailand.
Firstly, since my best outcome in a Superbike World Championship
came there – fifth place in 2016. Secondly, since a lane really
suits my roving style. There are a lot of sections where we have to
stop hard, that is my strength and something a new RR is also very
good at. We usually have to try not to remove too most on a long
straights and afterwards to make adult in a corners what we are still
now losing on a straights. However, we are all operative hard
and we consider that Thailand can be a good sport belligerent for us. The
feverishness will make it severe for everyone, though we are good prepared
and we trust we can have a good weekend. we am dynamic to do well
and already looking brazen to a weekend, as we unequivocally like a track
and we found a certain trend during Phillip Island, that we will now
lift into a competition in Thailand.”
