This year sees us on board the 2017 BMW S1000RR. We are really happy to have joined forces with BMW and their beast of a super bike. Straight out the box the S1000RR feels great and suits my riding style. Since I last raced a BMW HP4, Europe 2013, I have been dying to get back onto a BMW. When the opportunity arose to race the 2017 Season of National Superbikes for BMW Motorrad it felt right. I really couldn’t be happier.
We looked at the first regional race at Killarney as a shakedown test for the first national superbike series round coming up at Killarney on the 25th of March. It turned out to be a huge success. We took pole position and did the double winning both races. RPM Centre has done a great job building and setting up a race winning BMW S1000RR. There was a lot learnt over the weekend and getting to race against a few Kawasaki’s and a Yamaha gives us a good idea of how our bike compares. Our race pace is certainly there. All we need are a few small tweaks here and there and then we ready to take on the challenge of the 2017 Superbike Nationals. We would like to give a huge thank you to all our sponsors who have come on board for our 2017 campaign. Sandton Auto BMW, Stunt SA, MSD Racing, Primi Piatti, RPM Center, Bitubo
