Munich (DE), 6th July 2016. It is another impressive number: the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy continues to grow from year to year. For 2016 no less than 129 BMW racers have registered their participation – a new record. There has been also a change in the top positions: Chilean Maximilian Scheib improved to second courtesy of another win in the FIM CEV Superbike European Championship (CEV). This was one of the many strong results the BMW S 1000 riders, supported by BMW Motorrad Motorsport, achieved last weekend. There were also wins and podiums in the French Superbike Championship (FSBK), the French European Bikes Championship (FR EU) and the Italian Superbike Championship (CIV).

Scheib celebrated his second win of the season last weekend in the FIM CEV Superbike European Championship (CEV). He is closely followed by Isle of Man winner Ian Hutchinson (GB) in third, who has collected 198.50 points in the BMW Combined Road Race Challenge (BMW RRC) so far this season (see full standings below).
The registration period for the 2016 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy has closed – and this year brought new record numbers. After the successful first two years with 69 and 104 participants respectively, the Race Trophy has continued to grow in 2016. This season no less than 129 BMW racers are taking part. They come from 25 different countries on six continents and race for 82 teams in 27 different championship classes worldwide.
FIM CEV Superbike European Championship in Albacete, Spain.
The fourth round of the 2016 FIM CEV Superbike European Championship (CEV) was held in Albacete (ES) last weekend. Maximilian Scheib (CL) once more proved to be one of the best riders in the series on his BMW S 1000 RR. In race one the Targobank EasyRace SBK Team rider celebrated his second win of the season, also setting the fastest race lap. In the second heat, however, he crashed. Scheib was able to re-join the race and crossed the line in ninth. In the championship he is currently second, seven points behind the leader. In the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy Scheib improved from 15th to second place.
Roberto Blazquez (ES / ARC Competición) finished the races in ninth and 12th respectively. Scheib’s teammate Santiago Barragán (ES) had a bad crash in the first qualifying session and suffered a fracture to his tibia and fibula. We wish Santi a speedy recovery.
French Superbike Championship in Magny-Cours, France.
The French Superbike Championship (FSBK) held its fourth round of the season in Magny-Cours (FR) last weekend. Kenny Foray (FR / Tecmas Racing Team) claimed two more podium positions.

In the first encounter Foray was second, only 0.1 seconds behind the winner. In race two the BMW rider set the fastest race lap and crossed the line in third. In the championship classification Foray is currently third. In the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy the Frenchman improved from 17th to seventh.
