The German team will leave WorldSBK at the end of the 2024 season after four years in the Championship.

The Bonovo Action BMW Team will depart from the FIM Superbike World Championship at the end of the 2024 season. This news means that the German team will end their four year long journey in WorldSBK.

Throughout their time in WorldSBK the team have had big name riders on their books. The team started out with Jonas Folger, a German rider, on a German bike, in a German team.

The team have also had the likes of Eugene Laverty and Loris Baz in their ranks after, two established Superbike riders in the World Superbike paddock. Most recently the team have had the Texan, Garrett Gerloff and former WorldSBK Championship challenger, Scott Redding.

The team owner, Jurgen Roder, explained his reasons for the team leaving at the end of the season by saying: “I will be leaving for personal reasons from 2025 and Bonovo action is therefore withdrawing as a factory team from BMW. I would like to personally thank all the fans who have stuck with us so loyally, who have been happy with us but also suffered with us. Thank you very much, because without the enthusiasm of the spectators and fans such a commitment would not be possible.

“We hope that we can make a difference this year too. We are doing everything we can to move forward, and we hope that we can still show some strong signs of life from our side this season. My thanks also go to BMW. BMW has always been a fair and very reliable partner who has supported us in everything, including this year, when we are receiving the same material as our colleagues at SMR, so we are actually equipped accordingly.”
