Racetrack tests for V2021 mappings at Slovakiaring + Daytime running lights

During our closing phase, we again worked intensively on the V2021 mappings. There was also another test at the Slovakiaring, where we were able to work primarily on the wheelie control. Unexpectedly, we were able to collect further data in wet conditions that we can incorporate into the development.

The photos also show the enabling of the automatic daytime running lights on the S1000RR 2019 (K67).

Success proceeds in BMW S1000RR Cup 2020

 

Nils Meiners celebrated an almost perfect weekend in the BMW S1000RR Cup in Most from September 4th to 6th with 2x P2. Since his 2012 RR did not yet have the option of fine-tuning the DTC using the handlebar switch, we supported Nils in advance to optimize some DTC parameters via RCK2.

Feedback Nils Meiners (BMW S1000RR 2012): "I have now done your original mapping but with the adapted slip maps for race and slick. The race mode now fits perfectly."

Congratulations to Nils and good luck, also to our many other customers in the RR Cup, for the final races on September 25-27, 2020 in Brno!

 

 

IDM continues at Sachsenring and Eurospeedway Lausitz

An intense week is behind us. The International German Motorcycle Championship (IDM) had its 2nd and 3rd race weekend at the Sachsen- and Lausitzring. Especially on Friday, our customers had to struggle with technical problems at their S1000RR almost at the same time. Even if that meant a little loss of training time, we were able to help get all the machines back to work quickly. For us, this is valuable input for the further development of our BMW Motorrad electronic solutions.

Results from Sachsenring:

Results from Eurospeedway Lausitz:

Succesful in endurance with LWR Endurance, Part 2

Last weekend, the endurance cups went into the next 8h race of the season at the Nürburgring. The LWR Endurance team around Marco Klohocker impressively secured first place in the German Endurance Championship (DLC), Endurance class, and is now also leading the championship table.

We are pleased that our electronic solutions also work so well in endurance races, because in addition to rideability, low fuel consumption and tire wear are very important here.

We congratulate on this excellent result and already keep our fingers crossed for the next race.

Customer feedback on Race Mapping for BMW S1000RR

 

Another feedback on our Race Mapping which we are very happy about. Translated from German:

"I've been in Most for three days with the new modifications (control unit programming and Akrapovic complete system) and I really have to praise you. The bike works much better than before, especially the new DTC control is very good, even in the wet the electronics control works softly and absolutely controllable. The throttle response is optimal and the motor does exactly what you expect when you turn the handle. The money in your electronics was well invested and I can only recommend it to everyone. "

We had our hands full, but ultimately our supported customers were all very satisfied and there were no technical defects in races. For us at last the opportunity together with Marc Neumann to put our electronic solutions for the S1000RR 2019 to the acid test in racing and to work on further development. The results:

IDM Superbike: Marc Neumann, # 36, P15 + P17 | Stefan Kerschbaumer, # 89, P11 + P16

Pro Superstock Cup: Nico Thöni, 36 #, P1 + P1

IDM Sidecar 1000ccm: Mike Roscher & Anna Burkhard, # 66, P1 + P1

Development work / racetrack tests for V2021 mappings

Finally race track operations have been released again. But because championship races will start a little later, we were more busy testing ourselves then usual. We worked on numerous improvements for the 2021 mappings. In addition to Brno and Grobnik with a racing exhaust system, we were also at the Sachsenring to test the performance and compatibility to noise restrictions of our mappings with the stock exhaust system.

Now we can evaluate the data and make the improvements in racing available to our development drivers.
