BMW Motorrad is giving back to owners of the 2014 and 2015 S1000RR superbikes by offering a $1 million in contingency money to any rider who races his or her S1000RR in a handful of 2015 national race series.
The program is being launched in collaboration with XTRM Performance Network, which BMW tapped to provide real time distribution and management of the aforementioned contingency money payouts, as well as results tracking, and social media marketing.
Eligibility is an important requirement to avail of this money drop and BMW’s making it as strict as possible. Factory-supported teams, for example, are disqualified from entering the program. Only independent riders need apply and even then, BMW Motorrad has laid out a handful of aesthetic and technical rules, including the use of just one bike. Basically, you can qualify for the contingency funds if you’re going to race either a 2014 or 2015 S1000RR superbike. Any other bike and you’re out of luck.
If you do own any one of the two bikes, you can enroll to the program by going to XTRM’s dedicated page.
For now, BMW Motorrad’s umbrella funds covers only riders competing in MotoAmerica, CCS, and the Were National Challenge. Eligibility for other racing series have yet to be announced.
