Racing Update: Matthieu Lussiana Takes Brazilian Championship on BMW S1000RR

BMW racer Matthieu Lussiana’s (FR) plan was to defend his title in the Brazilian Moto 1000 GP series (MT1GP STK GP) and he succeeded with one race to go. He was crowned champion aboard his BMW Motorrad Petronas Racing S1000RR for the second time in a row at the penultimate round last weekend at Santa Cruz do Sul (BR).

The French rider received maximum points during his perfect weekend. On Saturday he secured pole position for the seventh race of the year. In Sunday’s race Lussiana set the fastest lap time and took the win with an advantage of nearly five seconds over his closest rival. It was his fifth victory of the season. By taking pole position, the win and fastest lap, Lussiana scored another 27 championship points.

Lussiana has won five out of the seven races contested so far this season. In the other two races he finished second on the podium. On all seven occasions he set the fastest race lap on his S1000RR. In addition he collected the extra point for pole position on four of the race weekends. He now has 176 points to his tally and has such a big lead that his rivals can’t catch him at the season finale, which will be held on November 29 in Curitiba (BR). For Lussiana, it is the second title win in the series. His BMW Motorrad Petronas Racing Team took the champion’s crown for the fourth time in a row.

With the Race Trophy points he scored in Santa Cruz do Sul, Lussiana also re-took the lead in the 2015 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy (see full rankings below). However, the scores are not yet final. At the end of the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy season all participants will be awarded bonus points for championship titles, pole positions etc.
