Munich (DE), 19th October 2016. Jerez de la Frontera in Spain and Brands Hatch in Great Britain: these were last weekend’s destinations for the BMW teams and the experts from BMW Motorrad Motorsport. Their outings have once more been successful with the next title win for the BMW S 1000 RR, as well as two race victories and further podium finishes. Raffaele De Rosa (IT) was crowned champion in the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup (STK1000). Maximilian Scheib (CL) competed in the STK1000 race in Jerez with a wildcard – and celebrated a sensational win. Brands Hatch was the venue for the grand finale of the 2016 British Superbike Championship (BSB). In the Superbike class (BSB SBK), Christian Iddon (GB) claimed a second place on the podium. In the race for the Superstock class (BSB STK), Michael Rutter (GB) celebrated a great victory, while Ian Hutchinson (GB) joined him on the podium in third. With their results, the RR riders collected more points for the 2016 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy (see full rankings below).
