HP motor racing, The Iron Road 2

This was another huge success for BMW, as Simo Kirssi won on the HP2 ahead of Werner Muller and Cyril Despres.

Although Kirssi was not able to better his previous day?s time due to the drastic deterioration in conditions (because of rain) his time of 09:05.82 was still 24 seconds faster than nearest challenger Cyril Despres.

Chris Pfeiffer - four-times winner of the Red Bull Hare Scramble - once again finished fourth on his BMW HP2 and Jimmy Lewis was sixth.

In the rain they were also considerably slower than they had been in the first Prologue race, but the HP2 Enduro riders felt more comfortable than most in the difficult conditions due to the bike`s legendary traction, as Chris confirmed: "I used to find the Prologue rather boring as a qualifier for the Hare Scramble, but on the high-speed HP2 it`s really exciting.

Bombing across gravel at over 170 and braking as late as possible on so many hairpin bends really gets the adrenalin going."

Berti Hauser, BMW Motorrad Sports Director summed up another successful weekend for the HP2 Enduro riders: "As expected, the KTM factory team was a very powerful opponent in a "home game".

Nonetheless, the perfect performance of the HP2 and the great team spirit and enormous dedication of our riders gave us this truly wonderful result, of which everyone should be really proud."
