Munich. In two championships that count towards the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy the 2017 season drew to a close last weekend. The MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK) held its last two races of the year under the floodlights of the Losail International Circuit in Qatar. In Japan, a double-header weekend at Suzuka marked the final round of the 2017 MFJ Superbike All Japan Road Race Championship (MFJ).

 

 

MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship in Doha, Qatar.

 

A schedule of 13 rounds took the BMW S 1000 RR racers and the BMW Motorrad Motorsport experts all round the world with the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK) over the last eight months. The 2017 season ended in the Qatar desert last weekend when the final round was held under the floodlights of the Losail International Circuit near Doha.

 

In Friday’s race one, Jordi Torres (ESP) from the Althea BMW Racing Team crossed the line in seventh place. The result secured him fourth place on the grid for Saturday’s second race. Torres’ hopes of finishing the season with another strong result ended on lap two, however, when he had a highside and crashed. His team-mate Raffaele De Rosa (ITA) was on his way towards a top-ten result in race one but crashed on lap ten. In the second race, De Rosa was 11th.

 

MFJ Superbike All Japan Road Race Championship at Suzuka, Japan.

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 current 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/.
