Southern 100 on the Isle of Man.

One month after the Tourist Trophy, road racers reunited on the Isle of Man for the Southern 100. A total of five races were on the schedule for the BMW S 1000 RR racers: the two Corlett’s Trophies races on Tuesday, the Ellan Vanin Fuels Senior Race on Wednesday, and the Island Aggregates Superbike Race and the Hunts Motorcycles Solo Championship Race on Thursday. The Southern 100 is part of the BMW Combined Road Race Challenge (BMW RRC), meaning that the results will be classified for the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy.

The very first race saw BMW racers secure a win and another podium. Rob Hodson (GBR) won the Corlett’s Trophies Race 1A while Michael Evans (GBR) finished in third place. In the following Corlett’s Trophies Race 1B, Dennis Booth (GBR) finished on the podium in third place. Also finishing in the top eight, Eric Wilson (GBR) crossed the finish line in sixth place with Jean-Pierre Polet (BEL) in eighth.

In the Ellan Vanin Fuels Senior Race, Hodson was the best BMW finisher in sixth place. He was followed by Ryan Kneen (GBR) and Mark Parrett (GBR) in seventh and eighth places. Hodson was also the best RR rider in the Island Aggregates Superbike Race, this time finishing fourth. Evans crossed the finish line in fifth place, while Sam West (GBR) and Kneen finished in seventh and eighth place. In the last of the 1000cc races, the Hunts Motorcycles Solo Championship Race, Evans, in fifth, was the best-placed BMW rider. This time, Kneen finished in sixth and West was eighth.

The Southern 100 was overshadowed by a tragic death: Britain’s James Cowton was fatally injured in a serious accident in the 600cc Challenge Race. The BMW Motorrad Motorsport Community would like to extend their heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and team.
