Barcelona. BMW Motorrad Motorsport travels to Spain for the next race weekend in the FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK). Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya hosts round eight of the 2022 season this weekend (23rd to 25th September). After a long summer break, four race events will now be held in a fortnightly cycle in September and October.
In August, the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team and the Bonovo action BMW Racing Team went testing at Barcelona with the four BMW Motorrad factory riders Scott Redding (GBR), Michael van der Mark (NED), Loris Baz (FRA) and Eugene Laverty (IRL). The purpose of the test was to prepare the BMW M 1000 RR for the second half of the season, and the findings could prove to be particularly valuable at the same circuit this weekend.
