Alex Barros makes successful racing comeback with a win and podium on the S 1000 RR


The 2016 season racing season drew to a close for the BMW Motorrad Motorsport Community: the SuperBike Series Brasil (BRSBK) and the Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSC) were the last championships to hold their 2016 season finales last weekend. They saw more success for the BMW S 1000 RR riders. At the final round of the BRSBK in São Paulo (BR), Alex Barros (BR) made a great racing comeback and claimed one win and a second place. Danilo Lewis (BR) and Diego Pierluigi (AR) also stepped onto the podium. The 2016 season in the Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSC) drew to a close in Sepang (MY) with a podium finish for Colin Butler (CA).

With the races in São Paulo and Sepang, the scoring period of the 2016 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy ended. The most successful participants and the top placed riders in the Race Trophy standings will be presented and awarded at the BMW Motorrad Motorsport Season Finale this coming Friday in Munich (DE).

SuperBike Series Brasil in São Paulo, Brazil.

Two races were held at the ninth and final round of the SuperBike Series Brasil (BRSBK) in São Paulo (BR) last weekend. The season finale saw one more win and a total of four podium finishes for the BMW S 1000 RR – and a prominent guest starter: Alex Barros (BR), former MotoGP rider and long time record holder with 276 starts in the motorcycle world championship. The team principal of the BMW Motorrad Alex Barros Racing Team took the opportunity to race the RR himself at São Paulo.

In race one, Barros was on the podium in second, followed by Danilo Lewis (BR / TecFil Racing Team) in third. Regular BMW Motorrad Alex Barros Racing Team rider Diego Pierluigi (AR) completed the BMW success in fourth. In race two, Barros even bettered this result: he took a sensational win and rode the fastest race lap. Pierluigi joined him on the podium in third. Lewis experienced bad luck and had to retire early. In the championship standings Lewis is the highest placed BMW racer, finishing the season in second overall.

Malaysia Superbike Championship in Sepang, Malaysia.

Plenty of action was on offer at the season finale of the Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSC) in Sepang (MY) at the weekend: in both the Superbike (MSC SBK) and the Superstock (MSC STK) classes four races were held. In the Superbike class, Colin Butler (CA / AP Racing) wrapped up the season with another podium finish: he was third in the fourth race, after being classified ninth, sixth and fourth in the other encounters. In the overall standings, Butler ended the season in third place.

In the Superstock class, Nasarudin Mat Yusop (MY / BMW Malaysia) claimed two top-five results, with fifth and fourth in races number two and three.
