The BMW Motorrad Motorsport racing family is a large, worldwide community that is united by a passion for motor racing. In addition to the works entries in the FIM Superbike World Championship and the FIM Endurance World Championship, there are countless privateer teams and riders competing around the globe, aiming to claim wins and titles with BMW motorbikes in a range of race series. The motto for this great community is: one passion, one family.

The 2022 season is underway and the last races of the year have not yet been held in all championships. And yet the BMW Motorrad Motorsport family can already celebrate six champions. Markus Reiterberger and Ben Young made the start in August. At Assen, Reiterberger and his BCC-alpha-Van Zon-BMW team celebrated the early title win in the International German Motorcycle Championship (IDM). With two more rounds to go, Reiterberger had such a big lead that he couldn’t be caught – it’s Reiterberger’s fourth IDM title. At the same time, BMW was already champion of the IDM manufacturers’ standings. That same weekend in August, Ben Young (Van Dolder’s Home Team) was crowned champion in the Canadian Superbike Championship (CSBK) for the second time. In addition, the constructors’ title went to BMW also in Canada.
In September, championship honours followed in MotoAmerica. Corey Alexander from team Tytlers Cycle RideHVMC became champion in the Stock 1000 class. It was Alexander’s first season on the BMW M 1000 RR - which he crowned by winning his first title in this class. Two titles were then won in France on the last weekend in September. Kenny Foray became champion in the French Superbike Championship (FSBK) for the second time on his BMW M 1000 RR from the Tecmas Racing Team. At the same time, Ludovic Hauser became champion of the French European Bikes Championship for the first time on his BMW S 1000 RR. Gabriele Giannini followed in October: as a rookie, he was crowned champion in the Italian National Trophy 1000.
There are already six BMW champions this season - and more could follow in the remaining races in the various championships. In our gallery, we offer an overview of the 2022 champions.

They have been collecting wins and titles for over ten years – firstly with the BMW S 1000 RR and then with the BMW M 1000 RR as well since 2021.

Unifying the many privateer BMW riders and teams from all over the world and providing them with an international stage has long been a key goal for BMW Motorrad Motorsport. The BMW Motorrad Race Trophy was the ideal platform for this between 2014 and 2021. This unique competition brought together BMW racers from the various championships in a collecting ranking system – crowning the best of them at the end of each season. Up to 160 BMW riders from all over the world took part in the Race Trophy.
As of 2022, we are striking out in a new direction with the aim of communicatively connecting the BMW Motorrad Motorsport family and providing them with a significantly larger international stage. We are now integrating our privateer riders and teams closely in the communication on our social media channels Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, on our website and in our newsletters. The successes of our racers – always up-to-date online.
