Golden weekend for the BMW S 1000 RR
The private BMW Motorrad riders made a great impression last weekend: four racing events were held, with victories for the BMW S 1000 RR on all four occasions.
At the season opener of the International German Championship SUPERBIKE*IDM (IDM), Markus Reiterberger (DE) celebrated a dominant double on his Van-Zon Remeha BMW RR. In the British Superbike Championship (BSB), Tommy Bridewell (GB) secured the first victory for Tyco BMW, while team-mate Alastair Seeley (GB) won the Superstock race. Reigning champion Matthieu Lussiana (FR / BMW Motorrad Petronas Racing) triumphed in the GP 1000 category (MT1GP) at the curtain raiser of the Brazilian championship. In doing so, Lussiana took the lead in the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy (see full ranking below). His team-mate Sebastian Porto (AR) also climbed onto the podium, finishing third. On top of that, road racer William Dunlop (GB) celebrated his first win on the Tyco BMW S 1000 RR at the Tandragee 100 (GB).
