Munich. The 2018 season in the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship drew to a close at the weekend, at the “Losail International Circuit” near Doha, Qatar. Loris Baz (FRA), from the Gulf Althea BMW team, claimed another top-six placing at the finale. The NextGen Motorsports Team was in action in the supporting programme for the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix – with a successful appearance from Glenn Allerton (AUS).

 

 

MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship at Doha, Qatar.

 

The “Losail International Circuit” near Doha, in the deserts of Qatar, hosted the final round of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship 2018 at the weekend. The schedule featured the final two races of the year, on Friday and Saturday. Loris Baz (FRA), of the Gulf Althea BMW team, rounded off the season by recording another top-six placing with his BMW S 1000 RR having finished the first race on Friday in sixth place.

 

That became last race of the year, as the desert circuit was then battered by storms so severe that Saturday's event had to be called off. Extreme downpours and a massive sandstorm led to extremely poor track conditions with standing water on the asphalt. For security reasons, the decision was made to abandon the second race.

 

 

Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix at Phillip Island, Australia.

 

Two weeks after the finale in the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK), the NextGen Motorsports Team returned to compete at the renowned “Phillip Island Circuit” south-east of Melbourne (AUS). Three Superbike races took place as part of the supporting programme for the MotoGP Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix. BMW racer Glenn Allerton (AUS) was one of the top performers in a starting field that boasted some outstanding riders.

 

Racing against names such as Troy Bayliss (AUS) and Troy Herfoss (AUS), Allerton claimed one win, one second place and one third place. After adding up the results from all the races, Allerton secured second place on the podium in the overall standings for the Superbike meeting.

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/.
