ELKHART Lake, Wis. — The Weir Everywhere Racing BMW squad has one goal as it heads into the Dunlop Championship at Road America: continue their winning ways. The team has won the first two 2018 MotoAmerica Stock 1000 Class races and leads the class championship by 10 points heading into the weekend’s action.
Team rider Travis Wyman has posted successful results at Road America during his 10-year professional racing career. Two of Wyman’s five career professional motorcycle road racing wins were recorded at the Elkhart Lake, Wis. circuit. Wyman also considers Road America one of his favorite circuits on the MotoAmerica calendar.
Wyman’s experience will hopefully help the team get up to speed quickly in its third MotoAmerica event. Road America’s iconic long straights should suit the BMW S 1000 RR package the team is campaigning this season. The team is to use the coming weekend to further develop the already strong chemistry between Wyman, crew chief Steve Weir, mechanic Alex Torres, and suspension tuner Lenny Albin from K-Tech, as well as take another step toward being the first team to win a MotoAmerica championship on a BMW.

“Our goal this coming weekend at Road America is to continue working well together as a team and maintain our positive momentum in the MotoAmerica Stock 1000 championship. The team and I are in this great position at the top of the championship, and we need to maintain our focus as we head to Road America. It’s a track that I have a bit of experience on, and there are parts of it that really suit my riding style. I am not sure exactly how well the BMW will do there, but the team has really come together and put a great motorcycle under me for the first two rounds this season. Every race weekend is still a learning experience for me, as it is the first time I am racing a 1000cc motorcycle at all of the tracks on the MotoAmerica calendar. MotoAmerica is also giving the Stock 1000 class some additional track time this weekend, so that should help us get out BMW S 1000 RR dialed in for Sunday afternoon’s race.”

“Things are going really well for BMW on the track right now. I just got back from working with a BMW team in Canada. That team scored a second-place finish, and we are looking carry that successful momentum into this weekend. Dunlop is introducing a new tire this weekend, and the new tire’s profile looks like it will work really well with our BMW S 1000 RR package. I know Travis has been training hard to get ready for this weekend, and we are all looking forward to getting back out on track at Road America.”
