British Superbike Championship at Oulton Park, Great Britain.
For the ninth round of the 2016 British Superbike Championship (BSB), the BMW teams and the engineers from BMW Motorrad Motorsport travelled to the traditional Oulton Park (GB) circuit last weekend. In the Superbike class (BSB SBK), three races were held, one on Saturday and two on Sunday. Richard Cooper (GB / Buildbase BMW Motorrad) was the highest placed BMW rider in race one, finishing sixth. Michael Laverty (GB / Tyco BMW Motorrad Racing) finished eighth, Lee Jackson (GB / Buildbase BMW Motorrad) in tenth also made it into the top ten. In the second race, two BMW racers made it into the top ten. Jake Dixon (GB / Royal Air Force Regular & Reserve) was eighth and Ryuichi Kyionari (JP), who will contest the remainder of the season on the BMW S 1000 RR of Smiths Racing BMW, finished tenth. In the third race it was then Laverty’s turn to reach the finish as the highest placed BMW rider, crossing the line in fourth. Cooper was sixth, Jackson eighth and Christian Iddon (GB / Tyco BMW Motorrad Racing) ninth.
In the Superstock class (BSB STK), ten races have been held so far this season – and on eight occasions victory went to a BMW S 1000 RR rider. At Oulton Park it was again a battle of the BMW racers for the win. In the end, Joshua Elliott (GB / Tyco BMW Motorrad Racing) took his first victory of the season. The one-two was completed by Adam Jenkinson (GB / NEI Motorsport), who celebrated his first podium finish. In total, eight RRs finished in the top ten. Places four to eight went to Michael Rutter (GB / Bathams SMT), Chrissy Rouse (GB / CECS / Mission Racing), Ashley Beech (GB / Jones-Dorling Racing), Alex Olsen (GB / Power Projects Racing) and Dominic Usher (GB / ONE7R / Formwise). Leon Jeacock (GB / Geo E Davies Racing) crossed the line in tenth. Until the very last corner the race was led by Taylor Mackenzie (GB / Buildbase BMW Motorrad) and Ian Hutchinson (GB / Tyco BMW Motorrad), but the duo crashed when battling for the win. In the BSB STK championship standings, Mackenzie is still in the lead with 178 points, followed by Hutchinson with 155 points.
