Munich. In the closing stages of the 2023 FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK), BMW Motorrad Motorsport is gearing up for a double-header in Spain and Portugal. The tenth season event will take place at MotorLand Aragón (ESP) next weekend (22nd to 24th September), followed directly by round eleven at Portimão (POR) one week later.
BMW Motorrad Motorsport and the two BMW teams, ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team and Bonovo action BMW Racing Team, are well-prepared for the race weekend at MotorLand Aragón. At the end of August, they conducted a highly productive two-day test with all four BMW Motorrad factory riders at the venue.
Michael van der Mark (NED) aims to continue to improve his feel for the bike after his injury break.
Michael van der Mark, #60 BMW M 1000 RR, ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team: “It’s nice to be back racing again. Obviously, Magny-Cours didn’t go as I had expected and also wanted but I’m still working on my return. The only thing I can do right now is to do as many races as possible so it’s nice to have two rounds back to back. We had a good test at Aragón so it’s nice to go there with a good base and the weather looks similar to test so that always good. Let’s see how it goes and then I’m really looking forward to the Portimão round. It’s one of my favourite tracks on the calender. I love being back there and it’s nice to have back and back races. With the progression that BMW made over last rounds I cannot wait to do the same.”
