“BMW More Interested In Selling Bikes Than Winning Races” – Scott Redding

Scott Redding is not holding back for his latest statement towards BMW after claiming that the manufacturer focuses too much on selling motorcycles instead of winning in WorldSBK.

The British rider joined BMW at the beginning of the 2022 season, with the team looking adamant about closing the gap of their M 1000 RR with the front row. 

Despite tremendous effort, the BMW M 1000 RR race bike still needs to catch up to the likes of the Yamaha R1M, Ducati Panigale V4 R and Kawasaki ZX-10RR. 

As a result, Redding could not break into the top seven in the championship last season, further increasing the riders’ frustration towards the German manufacturer.

“I signed the contract because I wanted to win and they told me they would do what I wanted to win. 

“And they made changes. The fork and brakes have changed, but some things will never change and you have to accept that.

“I want to win the championship so are they but maybe selling motorcycles interest them more than winning the World Championship,” he said. 

During last week’s two-day test in Jerez, Redding ended the session in 12th place, 1.4s down on Razgatlioglu. He’s currently in Portimao for another round of tests.
