BMW Motorrad USA is offering current and prospective racers even greater incentives to compete on its BMW S1000RR superbike this year. More than one million dollars in contingency money is offered for racers piloting a 2015, 2016 or 2017 model year S1000RR in several 2017 national and international race series. “We are excited to roll out an enhanced contingency program that will cover more race series to reinforce our commitment to supporting privateer BMW motorcycle racers,” commented Sarah Schilke, National Marketing Manager, BMW Motorrad USA.
In addition to the contingency program, BMW is again offering the racer support purchase incentive on the S1000RR. Racers licensed in any of the BMW supported contingency program series can apply for the support program through their authorized BMW Motorrad dealer. The program is limited to 20 racers for 2017.
“BMW Motorrad is providing riders with all the tools they need to succeed on the racetrack – a class-leading liter bike at a substantial savings, with the added incentive of HP Race Parts!” observed professional racer Nate Kern, who will serve as a BMW Motorrad Motorsports Advisor at MotoAmerica and regional series races this year. “New for 2017, certified BMW HP Race Engineer Steve Weir, has been brought on board to further enhance our supported racers’ success.”
BMW Motorrad’s Contingency Program is managed online via XTRM Performance Network, which provides real time distribution and management of contingency money payouts, results tracking and social media marketing. Racers piloting a 2015, 2016 or 2017 S1000RR can enroll by logging into www.xtrm.com/contingency/bmw to cash in on their performance.
