The lead in the 2015 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy has changed again: Markus Reiterberger (DE) is back in first position after claiming a win and a second place at the SUPERBIKE*IDM (IDM) races at Hungaroring (HU). His teammate Bastien Mackels (BE) celebrated his first ever podium in the Superbike class of the IDM. In the FIM CEV Repsol Superbike European Championship (CEV), BMW privateers, Daniel Rivas (ES) and Iván Silva (ES), stepped onto the podium, while Eeki Kuparinen (FI) took the win in the privateer class (CEV AM). Michael Laverty (GB) was in contention for the win on his BMW S1000RR in the British Superbike Championship (BSB) last weekend.

SUPERBIKE*IDM at the Hungaroring, Hungary.

Blazing heat welcomed the teams and riders of the International German Championship SUPERBIKE*IDM (IDM) at the Hungaroring near Budapest (HU), the venue for the fifth round of the 2015 season. Van Zon-Remeha-BMW rider Markus Reiterberger (DE) defied the fact that he had to load a BoP-weight of six extra kilos (13.23 lbs.) to his BMW S1000RR and continued his string of success. With a clever tactic, he won the first of the two exciting races, celebrating his eighth win of the season. In race two he was second, crossing the line only 0.1 seconds behind the winner. In the overall standings of the Superbike class (IDM SBK), Reiterberger now leads with 240 points and an advantage of 55 points over his nearest rival.

His Van Zon-Remeha-BMW teammate Bastien Mackels (BE) celebrated his first ever podium in the Superbike class of the IDM, finishing the second race in third. In race one the young Belgian was also fighting for the podium, but crashed in the second to last corner.

In the Superstock class (IDM STK), Michal Filla (CZ) was the best-placed BMW privateer with fourth place (eighth overall) in race two. Dominik Vincon (DE / BMW Stilgenbauer) made a good points haul, finishing both heats in fifth in the class (eighth and ninth overall). Pepijn Bijsterbosch (NL / Van Zon-Remeha-BMW) was eighth and seventh (12th and 11th overall) and guest starter Vincent Lon Bois (BE / Herpigny Motors SA) also achieved a top-ten result, coming home tenth in the first race (15th overall).

Hot temperatures and success for the BMW Motorrad privateers: this also goes for the fourth round of the 2015 FIM CEV Repsol Superbike European Championship (CEV) at MotorLand Aragón in Northern Spain. Daniel Rivas (ES / Easyrace SBK Team) claimed his best result of the season so far by finishing second. He was joined on the podium by Iván Silva (ES / Targobank Motorsport) in third. In the overall rankings, Silva has improved to second. Adrián Bonastre (ES) was fifth on the second BMW S1000RR from the Easyrace SBK Team. Eeki Kuparinen (FI) also finished within the top-six, crossing the line in sixth. In doing so, the Motomarket Racing rider secured victory in the privateer class of the CEV (CEV AM).

The fifth race weekend of the 2015 British Superbike Championship (BSB) was held in Knockhill (GB). In the Superbike class (BSB SBK), Michael Laverty (GB) put in an impressive performance, being in contention for the win on his Tyco BMW S1000RR in both races. In the first race he finished second on the podium. He was, however, later demoted to fourth place after receiving a one second time penalty – for allegedly overtaking in a yellow flag zone. In race two Laverty started from pole position and led for quite a while. Then the race had to be red-flagged due to a rain shower. After the re-start he was struggling with technical issues and finished sixth. His Tyco BMW teammate Tommy Bridewell (GB) was seventh in race one, but retired after a fall in race two. Ryuichi Kiyonari (JP) did not finish the first race but was fourth in race two on his Buildbase BMW Motorrad BMW S1000RR. Peter Hickman (GB / RAF Reserves BMW) crossed the line in the top-ten on both occasions, finishing tenth and ninth. Lee Jackson (GB) was 11th twice on his Buildbase RR, while Billy McConnell (GB / Smiths Racing BMW) was 12th and 21st.

In the Superstock class (BSB STK), the BMW Motorrad privateers experienced an unfortunate day. Alastair Seeley (GB / Tyco BMW) had claimed pole-position but crashed in the race. The best result went to Rob McNealy (GB / McNealy Brown Ltd.), who was 14th.
