Perfect start for Markus Reiterberger in the ARRC.

BMW racer Markus Reiterberger (GER) started a new chapter in his career at the weekend. The 26-year-old will contest the Asia Road Racing Championship (ARRC) for the ONEXOX BMW TKKR SAG Team this season, with backing from BMW Motorrad Motorsport and partner alpha Racing. The season opener was held at the Sepang International Circuit near Kuala Lumpur (MAS), and Reiterberger caused a stir on his BMW S 1000 RR right from the start.


Before the actual race weekend, a test was scheduled for the start of the week in Sepang in which Reiterberger set another lap record. He went on to set further records in the practice and qualifying sessions, which saw him claim pole position on his RR. However, it started raining just in time for the first race, and Reiterberger was in fourth place when he saw the chequered flag. In the dry second race, he lived up to his standing as favourite and celebrated his first win of the season with a lead of almost eight seconds.


“We’re delighted with the win,” said Reiterberger. “Undoubtedly there are a few areas in which we could improve. But apart from a few minor details, I’m really happy. I’d like to thank my whole crew at the ONEXOX BMW TKKR SAG Team and alpha Racing. I’ve got most of my former crew with me again with these guys. They were able to help me solve a lot of problems and consistently improved the conditions for me. The support of my fans, friends, sponsors, followers and family is also superb.”


Reiterberger’s team-mate Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman (MAS) finished the two races in sixth and tenth place.


Season opener in the Australian Superbike Championship.

The wheels are also turning once again in the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK). The new season got underway a week ago when the FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK) made a guest appearance on Phillip Island (AUS). The BMW squad in the ASBK is headed up by Glenn Allerton (AUS) of the NextGen Motorsports / Maxima BMW Racing Team. Finishing in fourth place in qualifying, he secured a good starting position for the three races. In race one, Allerton was up there fighting in the leading group, but was pushed out by a rival and temporarily dropped down to the back of the field. His race to catch up saw him move up into 16th place. Allerton started race two from this position and finished in ninth place. In the third and final race, he crossed the finish line in seventh place.


Linden Magee (AUS) and Dean Hasler (AUS) were two more BMW S 1000 RR racers in action at the season-opener. Magee finished in 11th, 15th and 12th places. Hasler finished in 19th twice, and 21st place.

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:
