BSB Superstock champion Taylor Mackenzie: “It is an unbelievable feeling when the dream comes true.”
Buildbase BMW Motorrad rider Taylor Mackenzie celebrated an early title win in the Superstock class of the British Superbike Championship. In an interview, he speaks about his successful season and the dominance of the BMW S 1000 RR in the series.
Munich (DE), 26th September 2016. It was the biggest success in his career so far: at the penultimate round of the 2016 British Superbike Championship (BSB) at Donington (GB), Taylor Mackenzie (GB) celebrated an early title win in the Superstock class (BSB STK).
In this closely fought series, Mackenzie claimed six wins on his Buildbase BMW Motorrad BMW S 1000 RR. He now has an advantage of 32 points over second placed Ian Hutchinson (GB / Tyco BMW).
The BMW S 1000 RR is the dominant bike in the BSB STK this season. In the 11 races contested so far, victory went to a BMW Motorrad Motorsport racer on nine occasions.
Six times it was Mackenzie who stepped onto the top step of the podium, Hutchinson won twice and Joshua Elliott (GB / Tyco BMW) once. In addition, the BMW riders shared most podium places among them and claimed two top-five-lockouts and two one-two-three results for the RR.
Champion Mackenzie comes from a racing family. His father Niall Mackenzie (GB) was crowned British Superbike champion three times, raced in the Motorcycle World Championship and in the Superbike World Championship.
Twenty-three-year old Taylor competed in the British Supersport Championship, and contested one season in the BSB Superbike class before joining Buildbase BMW Motorrad for the 2016 season in the Superstock class.
In an interview, Mackenzie speaks about his title win and his successful season. He explains why the BMW S 1000 RR is his most favourite motorcycle and talks about the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy.
