Most. It is less than two weeks since BMW Motorrad Motorsport, Scott Redding (GBR) and BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team celebrated their first podium of the season at Donington Park (GBR). Next up is the sixth round of the FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK) at Most, Czech Republic, where both BMW teams are eager to build on their achievements and head off into the WorldSBK summer break of several weeks on a high.
At Most, Peter Hickman (GBR) will compete for the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team alongside Redding. He is standing in for the injured Michael van der Mark (NED) who is planning to return after the summer break. Ilya Mikhalchik (UKR), who filled in for van der Mark at three events, is preparing for his appearance as a regular rider in the BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team at the third round of the FIM Endurance World Championship (FIM EWC) at Suzuka (JPN). This will be Hickman’s first race at Autodrom Most.
The sixth round at Most draws the first half of the season to a close, after which there will be a summer break lasting several weeks, until early September.
