IBPM: License-free motor sport for everyone
The IBPM (International Bike Promotion Championship) is a license-free race series for hobby racing riders. The IBPM events include a lot of driving time and the classes Superbike Open - SBKopen, Supersport Open - SSPopen / Superbike 750 - SBK750 (class explanation below) and the BMW S 1000 RR Cup. So everyone gets their money's worth, the race drivers and the training drivers. A lot of stretching time, maximum fun under high safety with a lot of family!
Where is IBPM going?
At most of the events there are 4 to 6 training turns per day with a length of 15 to 20 minutes. The sprint races run over a distance of 12 minutes plus one lap (race 1) and 17 minutes plus one lap (race 2). Points are awarded differently for race 1 and race 2. The SBK750 class is integrated into the Superbike (SBKopen) or Supersport (SSPopen) races. In any case, there is a separate rating for each of the three classes. For more information, see below.
The IBPM is currently being held on racetracks in Germany, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands. Seven runs are planned in the calendar for 2022.

Titles, prizes, fame and honor!
The overall championship is expected to have seven dates, high prizes and the title “Master of Class XX of the IBPM”.
Most of the IBPM appointments are set up as 3-day appointments and contain a lot of driving time and 2 races each. Some dates are set up as classic racing dates. You can find out more in the description of the respective event and from the schedule stored there.
For each race there is an award ceremony with the handover of trophies. In the SBKopen and SSPopen classes, at least the first five of each class will receive at least the first three trophies in the SBK750 class.
The prerequisite for receiving the prizes in the overall annual ranking is enrollment in the respective class and appearing at the championship ceremony at the end of the season. It is possible to enroll in several classes.
The championship award is given in the classes in which at least 10 drivers are registered.
Our Ladies Challenge is new in 2022! Across all classes, the best woman in the races of the IBPM and the BMW S 1000 RR Cup is determined using a formula that relates the placement to the number of starters. Ladies- the battle is open!
How do the IBPM events work?
The starting grid for the respective races will be determined in the free practice sessions on Friday and the separate timed practice on Saturday. The fastest training time from all times marked as qualification turns is used to determine the starting line-up. We start with 3 drivers per row. The starting grid applies to all races in the class on the respective weekend. The starting place of participants who do not take part in the second race will remain empty.
Preparation for the race / start procedure
A sighting lap will be driven, after which each participant will take his or her starting position. Bike Promotion staff is on the grid to help you find the right place to start. It is advisable to get an overview of the starting position at the start / finish straight before the race (markings on the lane) so as not to lose any time in finding the starting position.
As soon as all drivers have occupied their starting positions, the race begins. If the weather conditions are difficult, warm-up rounds can be carried out. The determination is made at least 10 minutes before the start of the race and this will be announced by an announcement
Start: The starter (standing in front of the starting line-up) leaves the runway as soon as all drivers are in their place and shows the start light with the red flag. The start release is then given by means of the traffic light signal. The traffic light initially jumps to RED and after 2-5 seconds it is switched OFF, which is the signal to start. In exceptional cases - for example if the traffic light is defective - the start can also be released by a flag signal (green flag).
Caution! The first turn is a key point in any standing start. It is to be avoided to approach this bend all the way inside at the start. Since in this part of the track nobody drives in training and the track is therefore not clean, the braking distance is extended accordingly. This in turn can lead to the driver in question no longer being able to turn and possibly driving straight ahead into the field that is just turning. Serious accidents are inevitable.
In the race
Most of the tracks have a digital display of the start / finish, which shows the remaining racing time or laps to be completed. If this display is not available, at least the last lap will be displayed manually on the starter tower.
End of the race
The race is over when the black and white checkered flag is waved to the start / finish.
