Milwaukee BMW launches at Phillip Island
Ahead of their racing debut in the 2016 FIM World Superbike Championship in this weekend’s event, the team unveiled the bikes’ liveries and new teamwear in the Paddock Show tent at the Phillip Island circuit.
Speaking at the launch, team principal Shaun Muir added:
“It’s a proud moment for the team and our sponsors to unveil the bikes and riders to the wider public here at Phillip Island. The build up to this point in time has been tremendous. My team and riders have faced every possible challenge in such a short period of time. Logistically and technically we have ticked every box. In fourteen weeks we have gone from a domestic championship winning team to World Superbike contenders. With just six problematic test days behind us, we hit the track here at Round 1 in Australia. It’s clear and obvious we are on the back foot in terms of on track performance, however I have every faith in the team and especially Karel and Josh that they will start to get the feel and understanding of the Milwaukee BMW 1000RR and results will follow. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors for their support in this new exciting project.”
A full gallery of images from the launch will be available on the Milwaukee BMW website at 10:30 am.
