Peter Hickman (GBR) has completed the hat-trick with his BMW M 1000 RR at this year’s Isle of Man TT. After winning the Superbike and Superstock races at the beginning of race week, the Gas Monkey Garage by FHO Racing rider was also victorious in the prestigious Senior TT that closed the event. Three races, three wins is the summary for Hickman and the BMW M 1000 RR on the IoMTT debut for the bike.
‘Hicky’s’ success in the opening RST Superbike race last Saturday, which he won in commanding style, marked the first ever Isle of Man victory for the BMW M 1000 RR. On Monday, he repeated that success in the Superstock race. In the final Senior TT, that had been postponed from Friday to Saturday, Hickman was again the winner. Ian Hutchinson (GBR), in action with the BMW M 1000 RR of the Milwaukee BMW Motorrad team, finished all three races with strong results. He was fourth in the Superbike race and seventh each in the Superstock race and the Senior TT.
“Three victories at the Isle of Man TT are a great result for us as a manufacturer,” said BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director Marc Bongers. The last time we achieved that was quite a while ago. These were also the first victories for the BMW M 1000 RR on the Isle of Man after the event could not take place in the past two years due to the Corona pandemic. The two weeks on the Isle of Man have not been completely trouble-free for us but we were able to solve the issues on site with support from Munich and to bring the BMW M 1000 RR to its performance. Peter transferred this brilliantly into three victories in the Superbike race, the Superstock race and the Senior TT. As BMW Motorrad Motorsport, we can be satisfied. A big thank you goes to the BMW teams, especially to FHO Racing and Peter Hickman.”
