Danilo Lewis (BR) and Diego Pierluigi (AR) also stepped onto the podium. The 2016 season in the Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSC) drew to a close in Sepang (MY) with a podium finish for Colin Butler (CA).


With the races in São Paulo and Sepang, the scoring period of the 2016 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy ended.

SuperBike Series Brasil in São Paulo, Brazil.


Two races were held at the ninth and final round of the SuperBike Series Brasil (BRSBK) in São Paulo (BR) last weekend. The season finale saw one more win and a total of four podium finishes for the BMW S 1000 RR – and a prominent guest starter: Alex Barros (BR), former MotoGP rider and long time record holder with 276 starts in the motorcycle world championship. The team principal of the BMW Motorrad Alex Barros Racing Team took the opportunity to race the RR himself at São Paulo.


In race one, Barros was on the podium in second, followed by Danilo Lewis (BR / TecFil Racing Team) in third. Regular BMW Motorrad Alex Barros Racing Team rider Diego Pierluigi (AR) completed the BMW success in fourth. In race two, Barros even bettered this result: he took a sensational win and rode the fastest race lap. Pierluigi joined him on the podium in third. Lewis experienced bad luck and had to retire early. In the championship standings Lewis is the highest placed BMW racer, finishing the season in second overall.
