BMW Motorrad Motorsport on Saturday during Most: Strong Superpole, good pace, unsatisfactory competition result.

Most. Saturday in a Czech city of Most began with a strong
Superpole outcome for BMW Motorrad Motorsport though finished with a
unsatisfactory competition result. The FIM Superbike World Championship is
creation a initial coming during Most, where it is entertainment spin six
of a 2021 season. In Superpole, Tom Sykes (GBR) of a BMW
Motorrad WorldSBK Team finished fourth on his BMW M 1000 RR,
narrowly blank out on a front quarrel of a grid. He afterwards came home
ninth in competition one. Sykes’ team-mate Michael outpost der Mark (NED) made
an considerable fightback in a competition before crashing out. Jonas
Folger (GER) from a Bonovo MGM Racing organisation late with a
technical issue.

 

Sykes came adult usually 0.015 seconds brief of a place on a front quarrel of
a grid in Saturday morning’s Superpole qualifying. However, fourth
place also put him in a good position going into a race. Van der
Mark had to settle for 17th place in Superpole. Folger, who had
crashed in a morning’s third giveaway use session, competent 21st.

 

Sykes climbed into third place during a start of competition one. However, he
went far-reaching in spin one while carrying to equivocate other riders and slotted
behind into fifth place. On path five, he again headed loyal on in
spin one when he was overwhelmed by another bike. Finding himself in tenth
place, Sykes attempted to work his approach behind to a front of a field,
though afterwards had issues with a behind tyre. He eventually crossed the
finish line in ninth place.

 

Starting from 17th on a grid, outpost der Mark launched a spirited
quip on his M RR. However, carrying climbed into eighth place, that

Quotes after competition one during Most.

 

Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director: “The
outcome of a competition has been disappointing. In Superpole, Tom gave a
clever performance, he was right adult there, and his competition simulations
looked good in practice. During a race, he had to cancel during T1 twice
going loyal on, so he mislaid several positions throughout. Mickey had
a unequivocally unsatisfactory subordinate but, in a race, done adult in a early
stages as he customarily does. He had good gait during a competition and was
throwing a P6, P7 organisation in front of him that would have been a good
outcome to come home with, though he unfortunately crashed. So we take the
certain indicate from currently that a gait from Michael was there, though if
we don’t move it home we get no points, so it was disappointing
overall. Jonas unfortunately late due to an engine failure, so we
have to demeanour into a cause. Now we wish for a improved day tomorrow.” 

 

Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team:
“We always aim for a initial dual rows as it’s a great
position to be in and Tom did usually that in Superpole. In a race, Tom
got pushed far-reaching going into a initial dilemma and reacted fast not to
remove many positions and time. The SC0 was a tyre of choice for the
competition and he got into a flattering waste conflict during a finish of a day so
he will equally be unhappy to finish 26 seconds off a win.
Michael had a formidable subordinate event though come a competition he did
loyal Michael outpost der Mark character to conflict and come by into a good
position. He was doing path times in that competition he hasn’t found all
weekend, so we am some-more gratified he was means to find that comfortable
feeling and his certainty brazen of tomorrow. Unfortunately, he
crashed during T20 that is easy to do with a temperatures increasing.
But we are not totally disappointed, we will come behind stronger
tomorrow as we gained a lot of information.”

 

Tom Sykes, BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team: “The
subordinate outcome for certain was nice. When we put a Q tyre into the
BMW M 1000 RR, we am means to float a bike most some-more naturally, and the
bike does things most better. But unfortunately for a competition there was
a brew of tyres. We went down a safer track and this positively did
not assistance us. After a start, going into T1 we was in there and I’ve
been happy with my braking all weekend, though a guys had stopped, and
we didn’t wish to collect anyone, so we took a choice to spoil my
initial lap. Then a second time somebody was adult a inside of me and
overwhelmed my handlebar, so we wasn’t means to make a turn. For tomorrow,
we will demeanour to urge a set up, and we will revisit a tyre
choice. Overall, we am a small bit disappointed, also disappointed
with a final competition outcome though we have learnt a lot today. Tomorrow we
will get dual some-more chances.”

 

Michael outpost der Mark, BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team: “It
was a unequivocally unsatisfactory day, to be honest. In Superpole, we had bad
trade on both outings on a Q tyre, that was such bad luck. It’s a
contrition as we felt we could unequivocally make a step forward, so it was not
easy starting from P17 on a grid. Anyway, in a competition we got a good
start and had good pace. we was fighting my approach towards a front and
was feeling good with a bike though unfortunately when we was sat in P8
we mislaid a front going into T20. we was perplexing tough so it’s a shame
since we mislaid some profitable points. It was a formidable day overall,
though we can be happy with a gait we had in competition one.”

 

Jonas Folger, Bonovo MGM Racing: “I was discerning in
yesterday’s initial giveaway use session, though unfortunately we afterwards had
a pile-up in use this morning. The mechanics managed to get the
bike prepared usually in time for qualifying. As a result, we usually rode two
laps before we went into Superpole. That was substantially because we didn’t
conduct a good time. In a race, we beheld when changing rigging that
there was a problem with a engine, that unfortunately afterwards failed.
It was a tough day.”
