British Superbike Championship: BMW racers enjoy success at Thruxton.

Peter Hickman (GBR) claimed the first podium for the new BMW S 1000 RR in the British Superbike Championship (BSB SBK) superbike class. The BMW rider from the Smiths Racing Team finished third in the second of the two races at Thruxton (GBR), where the racers contested round seven of the season. Hickman was in contention at the front of the field for much of a fiercely-competitive opening race, and actually led for a period. In the end, he came home fifth, just one second behind the winner. Race two was reduced to eight laps following a number of red flags. After several thrilling battles, Hickman ended the exciting sprint in third place to claim a spot on the podium. “We were fast all weekend, right from the first practice session. It is nice to end the weekend with a podium, as we have all earned it,” said Hickman.

Tyco BMW Motorrad team’s Christian Iddon (GBR) was also among the front-runners in the opening race, but dropped back to 17th in the closing stages. Iddon bounced back to finish sixth in race two. His new team-mate at Tyco BMW until the end of the season is Glenn Irwin (GBR), who made his debut on the RR at Thruxton. He came home eleventh in race one and failed to finish race two.

In the Superstock race (BSB STK), BMW rider Taylor Mackenzie (GBR / Bathams Racing) claimed his fourth win of the season. Alex Olsen (GBR / Team IMR) finished fifth while Andrew Reid (GBR / Tyco BMW) was eighth.

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:
