Munich. The BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team and Tom Sykes (GBR) will continue their successful cooperation in the FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK) in the coming 2020 season. Sykes will go in pursuit of top results on the BMW S 1000 RR for the second year in a row. His new team-mate will be Eugene Laverty (GBR).

 

The BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team entered WorldSBK in 2019. Armed with the new RR, which was presented to the international public in November 2018 and prepared for its outings in WorldSBK during the short time available over the winter break, the team has made gradual progress throughout its debut season. Sykes has already featured on the podium in Misano (ITA), Donington Park (GBR) and Laguna Seca (USA).

After such a successful year so far with the all-new BMW S 1000 RR, which is still very early in its development, gives me great motivation moving forward. I really enjoy the development part and we are certainly moving in a strong way. Of course, with the support from the whole of the team and the prestigious BMW brand my expectations for the 2020 season will certainly move higher and back to where I feel most natural. I will also take this moment to welcome Eugene on board. I’m looking forward to have him as a team-mate for 2020.”

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/.
