Expansion of the partnership with alpha Racing for the STK 1000 European Championship and the International German Motorcycle Championship (IDM).

Team Principal Werner Daemen and the alpha Racing Managing Directors Josef Hofmann and Josef Meier are intensifying their cooperation from the 2018 season.

For the involvement of Daemen in the IDM and the Superstock 1000 European Championship, the racing specialist from Stephanskirchen secured a part of the naming rights. In addition to the long-time partner Horeca Van Zon, the wholesaler from Belgium, alpha Racing enters the team name.

Werner Daemen’s alpha Racing-Van Zon-BMW Team has been relying on performance parts of alpha Racing since the start of the racing activities with BMW Motorrad. With the extended cooperation, the team around the two Superstock pilots Markus Reiterberger and Jan Bühn not only secures the know-how for racing-specific equipment and spare parts, but also the suspension service known from the IDM. Even the soon to be presented IDM riders, can continue to build on the best alpha racing support.


Werner Daemen:

„I am very happy to continue working with alpha Racing in the IDM and entering the Superstock 1000 European Championship. So far, we are working together very closely in IDM, as well as in our wildcard projects, and we have a lot in mind for the future. We appreciate very much what alpha Racing has already done on our journey and are looking forward to the upcoming tasks. In order to be at the top in both series we have to be able to rely 100% on our partners. With alpha Racing, we have optimal conditions, both on the side of technology and on a personal level.“

„Motorcycle racing has always been our passion and our drive for many of our business activities, which is why we have been supporting the team around Werner Daemen and its pilots for many years with our know-how and products from our Performance Parts department. We are looking forward to further intensify this collaboration in the coming season in IDM, as well as taking the next step into international racing. An excellent team structure and talented riders provide the perfect basis for our common racing project. All this makes us confident to show up with very good results.“
