Isle of Man. The new BMW S 1000 RR made its debut at the Isle of Man TT – with a strong result. Peter Hickman (GBR) of Smiths Racing Team set the pace in the 1000 cc races on his new RR and picked up two wins (Superbike TT, Superstock TT) and a second place on the podium (Senior TT). ‘Hicky’ also set the fastest lap in all three races.

 

After fog and rain caused massive delays to the Isle of Man TT schedule, the Superbike TT on Monday was the first 1000 cc event scheduled. Hickman won the race and set the fastest lap. The Superbike TT was overshadowed by the fatal accident of BMW road racer Daley Mathison (GBR) of Team Penz13.com.

 

The second race in the 1000 cc category in the Superstock TT followed on Thursday. Hickman dominated the race on his BMW S 1000 RR right from the start. After three laps on the ‘Mountain Course’, he crossed the finish line as the winner, with a lead of 26 seconds over his closest rival.

 

Race week drew to a close on Friday with the Senior TT over six laps. Hickman stormed away from the field on his RR and extended his lead to almost 18 seconds. However, an overheating issue forced him to reduce his speed – but Hickman had no intention of quitting the race, and ended up on the podium in second place.

 

Michael Dunlop (GBR), who once again joined forces with the Tyco BMW team at the Isle of Man TT, was also involved in the battle for the podium on his RR. In the Superbike TT on Monday, Dunlop was ranked in sixth place. In the Superstock TT he finished in fourth place and missed out on the podium by just two-tenths of a second. In the Senior TT, Dunlop crossed the finish line in fourth place once again.

 

Davey Todd (GBR) of Penz13.com was ranked tenth in the Superbike TT, and he finished in eighth place in the Superstock race. In the Senior TT on Friday, Todd got his personal best lap time on the ‘Mountain Course’ to date and crossed the finish line in sixth place. Michael Rutter (GBR / Bathams Racing) rode his RR sixth position in Thursday’s Superstock TT.

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/.
