WSBK: Reiterberger has to give way to Laverty

Tom Sykes will remain in the BMW Team in 2020, meaning that Markus Reiterberger will lose his place.

Laverty (33) drove in 2011 to 2014 already in the WorldSBK. In 2013, he took second place in the overall standings. In 2015 he switched to MotoGP, in 2017 he returned to the WSBK and drove for the team of Shaun Muir.

 

Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director: “In Eugene Laverty, we welcome a very experienced rider on board – someone who is also very familiar with Shaun Muir’s team. At the same time, we would like to say a big thank you to Markus Reiterberger. He was closely involved in the development of the racing version of the new RR from the word go, and has thus been instrumental in the success we have enjoyed. We will do everything we can, in the remaining races we have together in the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team, to ensure that we have a successful end to the season with Markus.”
