Runner-up in the IDM 2018!

With a victory and a second place in Hockenheim we say goodbye to the very successful IDM Superbike season 2018 with the vice champion title.


Strong first race at Hockenheim:

In a race full of blows between the later IDM champion Ilya Mikhalchik and Wilbers rider Bastien Mackels, the Belgian in our service finally won the race.

However, second place was enough for the Ukrainian to secure the championship, for which we from Team Wilbers-BMW-Racing congratulate him!


BMW also dominates the second race:The picture of the strong BMW machines, which was presented throughout the entire season, was also evident in the second race at the Hockenheimring - the podium was once again exclusively occupied by BMW drivers. The finish line of the two top drivers, Mackels and Mikhalchik, spun in the second race so that Bastien finished second.


The successful season finally gave our driver another week in a grenade BMW car, this time the BMW M5, which he was promised after the first race.


He has already returned the very sporty BMW M4-Coupé after 3 weeks of full driving pleasure.

The team "Wilbers-BMW-Racing" has already finished the contract extension with Bastien Mackels on Saturday and therefore we can start immediately with the preparation for the season 2019.


Since we will be holding the much longed-for BMW Boxer Cup together with BMW in the coming 2019 season as part of the supporting programme of six IDM events, we now have a nice time cushion for the implementation instead of waiting half of the winter, as in the past, to see how things will ultimately go on.


We are already looking forward to the coming IDM season and hope to build on the achievements of this season!


Now it's time for the Intermot in Cologne and we are looking forward to welcoming many of our numerous fans there!
