In Curitiba, the riders had to cope with blazing heat but Lussiana and his team had prepared the number 1 S1000RR perfectly for those hot conditions. In Saturday’s qualifying, Lussiana secured pole position for the third time this season. In Sunday’s race he pulled away right after the start. On lap two he put in the fastest lap of the race by setting a new track record of 1:19.998 minutes. After 18 laps, Lussiana took the checkered flag with an advantage of over eight seconds.

In the five races held so far this season, Lussiana has claimed four wins and one second place. In the overall classification, the BMW rider now leads with 128 points and an advantage of 48 points over his closest rival. Three more rounds will be held this year. In the 2015 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy, Lussiana has improved to third (see full rankings below).

His BMW Motorrad Petronas Racing teammate Luciano Ribodino (AR) finished the race in fifth on his RR. Victor Moura (BR / M2B Racing) crossed the line seventh overall on his S1000RR, taking the win in the Evo class. In the race of the GP Light class (MT1GP STK LT), BMW privateer Márcio Pereira (BR / MS Racing Team) came home fifth and Mauricio Paludete (BR / Sport Plus Racing) was eighth on his RR.
