BMW seek K12 racers

Published: 11 February 2005

BMW is looking for racers to enter the 2005 BMW Motorrad Power-Cup, riding the 163bhp K1200 R.

The Power-Cup is the successor the the BMW BoxerCup which saw boxer twins racing as a support to European MotoGP rounds. In 2004 the championship was won by Thomas Hinterreiter with British rider Richard Cooper wining the 'YoungStar' award.

This season seven rounds are planned beginning with Le Mans in May, and the machines are fitted with carbon fibre bodywork and a Laser end can. Prizes include a BMW 630i coupe, BMW X3 car and a BMW motorcycle for the series winner, plus 1,250 Euros for each race win.

"The complete race bike costs just 18,000 euroes and the majority of a rider's entry fees will be covered by BMW Motorrad GB," said BMW's Tony Jakeman. "Race paddock hospitality is included in the entry fees, as is an extremely generous prize structure, including a special award for young riders keen to establish themselves on the international stage."

Series dates:

May 15, Le Mans

June 4, Mugello

June 25, Assen

July 24, Donington

July 30, Sachsenring

August 28, Brno

November 6, Valencia
