French Superbike Championship: Win and second place for Mathieu Gines.

The second race of the season in the French Superbike Championship (FSBK) took place at the Circuit de Nogaro Paul Armagnac (FRA). Mathieu Gines (FRA) from the Tecmas Racing team enjoyed a near-perfect weekend. He first claimed pole position on his BMW S 1000 RR and then celebrated a win in race one having led from start-to-finish. A thrilling second race saw him cross the line in second place, just 0.080 seconds behind the winner. Maxime Bonnot (FRA), also competing for the Tecmas Racing team, secured 11th and 13th positions on his RR (corresponding to third and fourth places in the Superbike Challenger standings). Team-mate Kenny Foray (FRA) did not compete at Nogaro due to private reasons.



British Superbike Championship: Mackenzie and Olsen return to the Superstock podium.

The second event of the 2019 British Superbike Championship (BSB) season took place at Oulton Park (GBR) – as tradition dictates, the races took place on the Bank Holiday, on the first Monday in May. In the first Superbike class (BSB SBK) race, Peter Hickman (GBR) claimed sixth place on the Smiths Racing BMW S 1000 RR, closely followed by Keith Farmer (GBR) on the Tyco BMW Motorrad team RR. Farmer’s team-mate Christian Iddon (GBR) was also in the leading group before heading for the pits due to a technical issue. In the second race, Iddon was the best-placed BMW rider in sixth position, while Farmer finished eighth. Hickman delivered thrills with a spectacular recovery performance on his RR. After his tyre pressure on the grid did not meet requirements, he was demoted to the back and started from 29th place. Hickman worked his way up through the field and only missed out on a top-ten finish by one tenth of a second.


One race took place in the Superstock class (BSB STK) at Oulton Park. The two RR riders Taylor Mackenzie (GBR / Bathams Racing) and Alex Olsen (GBR / Team IMR) built on their successful form from the season-opener at Silverstone (GBR). Mackenzie finished second and Olsen completed the podium trio, one place behind. Olsen also recorded the fastest lap time on his RR. Andrew Reid (Tyco BMW) rode to ninth position to claim a top-ten finish.


French European Bikes Championship: Two podiums for the BMW S 1000 RR.

The second race weekend of the season in the French European Bikes Championship (FR EU) also took place at Nogaro (FRA). Cyril Brunet-Lugardon (FRA / Gers Moto Vitesse Ordannaise) continued to display the form he showed at the Le Mans (FRA) season-opener. He finished third in the first race to reach the podium. Fourth place went to Alexandre Leleu (FRA), followed by Léo Challamel (FRA) in fifth. Jonathan Germany (FRA / Team MDS) took the chequered flag in eight position. David Henriques (FRA) and Jeremy Herault (FRA) completed the top ten. There was another podium finish for the RR in the second race when Challamel claimed second place; Brunet-Lugardon claimed fourth, followed by Leleu and Herault in fifth and sixth places. Germany crossed the line in eighth place again, while Henriques finished tenth.


MotoAmerica: RR rider Travis Wyman on the Superstock podium.

BMW riders were in action at the weekend in the second round of the MotoAmerica AMA Road Racing Series (MA) at the Virginia International Raceway (USA). Travis Wyman (USA / Weir Everywhere Racing) reached the podium in third place in the Superstock class (MA STK) race. Ryan Jones (USA / Ryan Jones Racing) crossed the line in fifth place in the Superstock race, while Greg Ludt (USA / Motor Rad Racing) finished the race in ninth position. The riders completed two races in the Superbike class (MA SBK). Jake Gagne (USA / Scheibe Racing) reached sixth place in the first race but was forced to retire from the second race. Samuel Trépanier (CAN / Blysk Racing) crossed the line in 11th place in both races.

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:
