In the French Superbike Championship (FBSK), Kenny Foray (FRA) topped the podium at Lédenon (FRA), where he took his first win of the season. The French European Bikes Championship (FR EU) also made an appearance at Lédenon – and Florian Brunet-Lugardon (FRA) celebrated a double win.

 

 

British Superbike Championship at Snetterton, Great Britain.

 

The fourth round of the British Superbike Championship (BSB) was held at Snetterton, Britain at the weekend. In the Superbike class (BSB SBK), Peter Hickman (GBR / Smiths Racing) was the best-placed BMW rider one week after his Isle of Man Senior TT victory. Hickman finished the two races in seventh and sixth place, thereby clinching his best results of the season to date in the BSB. Christian Iddon (GBR / Tyco BMW Motorrad), who was cleared for racing after injuring his hand, finished in ninth and eighth place. His Tyco BMW team-mate Michael Laverty retired in the first race, and crossed the finish line in ninth place in the second race.

 

Peter Hickman: “I’m happy enough with the weekend and although qualifying was pretty rubbish, I managed to rectify that in both races. I got a bit lucky in race one with a few riders crashing out, and after starting in 17th; I was up into eighth after just a couple of laps! Once there though, my pace was good, and I kept chipping away whilst it was a similar story in race two. Snetterton was our poorest circuit in 2017, so to come away this weekend with two good results is pleasing and whilst I’m still not in the positions I’d like to be in, we’ve made good progress. It hasn’t been easy coming here straight after the TT but the whole team have done well so hopefully this kick starts our season.”

 

In the Superstock class race (BSB STK), Tyco BMW Motorrad rider Keith Farmer (GBR), the best BMW rider, finished in fourth place. Luke Hedger (GBR / Lloyd & Jones Bowker Motorrad) finished fifth. Jordan Gilbert (GBR / Team IMR) and Michael Rutter (GBR / Bathams Racing) also made it into the top-ten, finishing in ninth and tenth.

 

 

International Road Racing Championship at Terlicko, Czech Republic.

 

The second round of the International Road Racing Championship (IRRC) season took the series to Terlicko in the Czech Republic for the “Golden Miners Lamp” races. BMW road racers dominated the weekend, celebrating top-four and top-six lockouts in the two races.

 

The field of successful BMW riders was headed by Danny Webb (GBR) on the Wepol Racing by Penz13BMW S 1000 RR. The Brit secured wins in both races. Like at the opener at Hengelo, in the Netherlands, he picked up the maximum number of points and further extended his lead in the championship. Didier Grams (GER / G&G Motorsport by BMW Motorrad), who started from pole position, finished on the podium in second place in both races. Third place on the podium in both races went to Erno Kostamo (FIN / Markka Racing), and Marek Červený (CZE / Wepol Racing by Penz 13) finished fourth in both races. In the second race, Jamie Coward (GBR / Wepol Racing by Penz13) and Petr Bičiště (CZE / Exteria Racing Team) clinched the top-six lock-out for BMW.

  

 

French Superbike Championship at Lédenon, France.

 

The French Superbike Championship (FBSK) headed to Lédenon (FRA) for the third round of the 2018 season. After four second-places in the previous four races, BMW rider Kenny Foray (FRA) celebrated his first win of the season on his BMW S 1000 RR in action for Tecmas Racing. Foray won the first of the two races; in race two, the defending champion finished on the podium in second place.

 

Kenny Foray: “It was a good weekend for us. We finished the two qualifying sessions in third and second. The lap time was really fast, so we knew that we had a good pace for the races. In the first race, I had a good start and then was involved in a battle for the win over the entire distance. In the end I took the win. That was good for the team, for me and for all involved. The second race was a bit difficult. I had a bad start and afterwards I pushed for the entire race but it was only good enough to finish second. Overall we can be happy with the weekend and I’m looking forward to the next races in two weeks at Magny-Cours.”

 

 

French European Bikes Championship at Lédenon, France.

 

The French European Bikes Championship (FR EU) was also at Lédenon. For Florian Brunet-Lugardon (FRA / Gers Moto Vitesse Ordannaise), Lédenon proved to be a good track, with the defending champion winning both races. His brother and team-mate Cyril Brunet-Lugardon (FRA) finished in fourth and sixth places. Jonathan Germany (FRA) crossed the finish line in fifth place in both races. Florian Brunet-Lugardon’s double win sees him take the lead in the championship standings while Germany is second.

 

Florian Brunet-Lugardon: “In race one, I started from second place and took the lead on lap two. Over the course of the race, I had a strong pace and stayed in first position until the chequered flag. In race two, I started from third place on the grid and was able to hold that position at the start. I then was part of a three-way battle at the front and we were really fast. On lap 11, I took the lead and I kept it to the finish line. It is great to be the championship leader before the season reaches it halfway mark at Magny-Cours.”

 

 

MFJ Superbike All Japan Road Race Championship at Sugo, 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 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/.
