IDM @ Schleiz 2022

IDM Superbike 1000: Again we were at the start with Neumann Racing by Tommy Wagner. In the best racing weather, Marc-Reiner Schmidt was once again able to show what he and this small team are capable of with a near-series bike with two top ten results. Especially when you consider that Marc-Reiner was for the first time ever on the Schleizer circuit on the road. The regulators have then also looked very closely and have confirmed the used series electronics as compliant with the rules. The Einsatzbike of Marc-Reiner Schmidt comes, by the way, from the BMW S1000RR Competition Series, which is available depending on the configuration at Tommy Wagner already under 30,000EUR for everyone to buy. The results:

Rider Fastest lap R1 R2
Marc Neumann 1:27.0 P18 P18
Marc-Rainer Schmidt 1:25.6 P7 P9

Pro Superstock Cup: Here there was double reason to celebrate. Philipp Gengelbach was able to impressively underline his title ambitions with a double victory. Marc Neumann was also present this time as a guest starter, held back with aggressive overtaking maneuvers so as not to inadvertently intervene in the championship and showed with P2 and P3 two super races. Race 1 Re-Live here.

Congratulations and thanks to all for a great weekend!

PS: here is a great press article from Speedweek.

IRRC @ Chimay

Last weekend the International Road Racing Championship (IRRC) was held in Chimay, Belgium, and David "Datziii" Datzer arrived as championship leader. With a P2 and P4 result he could again secure valuable points for the championship - especially in race 2 in which his BMW did not want to deliver the usual performace which unfortunately forced Datzii to damage limitation. Also the other BMW drivers with RS2E electronics were again in front. Erno Kostamo was able to confirm his excellent form in the first race with P3 and Markus Karlsson (P4, P2) was also able to achieve a podium result. In addition, Didier Grams, Marcel Elsner and Patrick Hoff were also back in the top 10. The latter captured the ride in the 2nd race on video (here) for all road racing fans.

Congratulations to all, and many thanks to "The Hoff" for the great video!

Report in Bremspunkt regarding Power Plus option

We are always very happy about positive feedback. When it comes from a journalist in professional form, it is of course even nicer. Last week a new report about our Power Plus option appeared in Bremspunkt. Besides this article there are many more interassent and independent reports about motorcycling to discover. Thank you Daniel for your visit and your report and the associated motivation boost! Also thanks to Tommy Wagner Motorrad for the great cooperation during this project.

IRRC @ Imatra

This weekend the International Road Racing Championship (IRRC) was hosted in Imatra, Finland. There the Isle of Men Top 20 finisher David "Datziii" Datzer could secure valuable points in the championship with a P2 and P3 result and prove his co-favorite role. The nose in front this time was his teammate Erno Kostamo, who celebrated a start-finish victory twice in his home race. For Team Penz13 a great weekend and reason to celebrate. In addition to the two were with titleholder Didier Grams, Markus Karlsson, Marcel Elsner and Patrick Hoff 4 other BMW in the top 10 on the road relying on our electronics services - so also for us an extremely successful weekend.

Congratulations to all of them!

RS2E @ IDM Most 2022

IDM Superbike 1000: This year we are at the start together with Neumann Racing by Tommy Wagner. Marc-Reiner Schmidt was already able to put a first exclamation mark in the 2nd free practice at the Autodrom Most with P4 in the rain in a top-class competition. We are happy that together as a small private team we could show that a bike based on series electronics is absolutely competitive in the wet as well as in the dry. The results:

Rider Fastest lap R1 R2
Marc Neumann 1:37.6 P23 DNF (crash on P18)
Marc-Rainer Schmidt 1:35.8 16 10

Pro Superstock Cup: We were especially pleased with the amazing performance of Philipp Gengelbach, who had to start the race from 30th and 29th place after a crash through no fault of his own, but still managed to win the first race and finish the second race in P2. Again an impressive proof that a bike based on series electronics is capable of winning.

We congratulate all athletes to their results and are already looking forward to the next race in Schleiz in July. There we will give everything again to hopefully be able to tie on to this performance.

PS: For all those who would like to have an impression of this great world championship track, here is a video of the May test in which Marc Neumann takes us on a few laps.

Customer feedback about our electronics and the S1000XR on the race track

With great pleasure we have received the following feedback on the use of the BMW S1000XR on the race track. In addition to our Race Mapping S, André has also opted for the Power Plus option as well as short throttle. Thank you André for letting us share your experience here!

"After one season with your programming I am super satisfied. Everything that has been converted has worked perfectly. Thanks to your good advice and recommendations, riding the XR was a dream. ... The performance of the XR on the race track, has surprised a lot of people. Got very great appreciative feedback from the paddock. Rider and bike in perfection, my thanks again to you for that."

RS2E @ Isle of Man TT

Together with Penz13 Racing and David Datzer #55 we have been working for a few days on the perfect set-up of the BMW S1000RR 2022 for the Isle of Man TT. For us, in addition to the new experience, above all a further field of development that we can cover - because in road racing it depends in part on somewhat different things than on the circuit.

For the drivers, it's simply amazing. Datzii is in P18 in the Superbike class after QP4. An excellent performance considering that he is competing in the premier class on the island for the first time. We hope for the necessary bit of luck and wish all teams and drivers a successful and accident-free TT. Now have fun with some videos and don't forget to turn up the speakers.
