Munich. The seventh round of the 2017 British Superbike Championship (BSB) in Thruxton (GBR) was overshadowed by a fatal accident in the Superstock class. The BMW Motorrad Motorsport community mourns the loss of Mark Fincham (GBR), who competed at Thruxton with team True Heroes Racing.

 

Fincham’s tragic accident happened in the second Superstock race on Sunday. He was immediately treated by the BSB medical staff but succumbed to his injuries. BMW Motorrad Motorsport’s thoughts are with his family, friends and team at this difficult time. After this sad news, the sporting aspects of the weekend pale into insignificance for the BMW racing family.

 

In the Superbike class races, Peter Hickman (GBR / Smiths Racing BMW) had claimed one victory and one second place at Thruxton. In the Superstock class, Michael Rutter (GBR / Bathams SMT Racing) and Adam Jenkinson (GBR / Northern Escalator Installations) scored podium finishes.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
