BMW Motorrad BoxerCup goes into its second season in 2020.

Munich. The BMW Motorrad BoxerCup promoted by Wilbers
goes into its second season this year. The BoxerCup 2020 will
primarily be held in conjunction with the International German
Motorcycle Championship IDM and the racing calendar currently
comprises seven racing weekends, each with two races. Like last year,
the riders will battle it out on technically identical BMW R nineT
Racers, ensuring ideally balanced opportunities for a thrilling racing spectacle.

BMW Motorrad and Wilbers have extended their cooperation in
connection with the BoxerCup. Like last year, the BMW R nineT Racer
bikes have been optimised for the race, with each bike featuring
identical modifications including an optimised fork and a strut by
Wilbers, carbon fibre cylinder head covers, engine spoiler and rear
end by Ilmberger, titanium manifolds with mufflers by BOS,
quick-release brake couplings by Stäubli, windshield and frame sliders
by Wunderlich, BMW Motorrad ABS with racing software, handlebars and
footrest systems and the option of a reverse shift pattern by Gilles
Tooling, as well as Dunlop slicks and rain tyres. A new BoxerCup
partner is silencer manufacturer BOS, who is fitting every racing
Boxer with powerful-sounding silencers. The helmets are supplied by
HJC. Thanks to the fact that the conditions are equal for all
participants, nothing but riding skills, courage and a little luck
decide who wins and who loses.

Last year the BoxerCup already produced high-thrills racing right
through to the finish. The highlight of the season as a whole was
definitely the final at Hockenheim. Points leader Chris “Fifty“ Hoefer
arrived at the Motodrom in Baden with a comfortable margin of 31
points to clinch the title of “BoxerCup Champion 2019”.

To the delight of fans, several well-known guest starters appeared
for the final race of the season, including former Grand Prix rider
Jürgen Fuchs, ex-BoxerCup winner and superbike veteran Stephane
Mertens and BMW Motorrad spokesperson and 1992 German Supersports 600
champion Gerhard “Gegesch” Lindner, as well as Norbert
Rebholz, BMW Motorrad development engineer responsible for the BMW R
nineT series and – like Lindner – a former supersports rider.

This season the BoxerCup has an international line-up from the word
go, with riders from Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and the USA. As in
the previous year, some well-known racing riders will be joining in to
provide additional highlights. The BMW Motorrad BoxerCup starts on 22
– 24 May at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.

Riders and teams can apply for a much-coveted starting place in 2020
right away. For the first time, Wilbers is offering not just a package
including a ready-to-race R nineT Racer, equipment and fees, but also
a Cup parts kit for
BMW Motorrad dealers and BMW R nineT Racer
owners. For further details of the racing series and entries, please
