1998 European Season Ended
Our European season ended with a very nice 21yr old German lady named Katja Poensgen winning the championship riding a BMR-Suzuki. She achieved this by winning 4 out of seven races with one second place & 2 DNFs.

The BMR-Suzuki she rode is a very interesting tool. It may have started life as a DR800 motor but that was long ago & far away! It's creator is Rupert Bainzel, and apart from a lot of bottom-end work, the motor features a machined-from-the-solid top end, with an Apfelbeck type of cylinder head where the valves are arranged radially, with exhaust & inlet ports placed diagonally. As you can imagine, this calls for some hairy machining of cams, they are conically ground. It's watercooled and fuel-injected & gives over 90BHP from 741cc at 8000 & peaks at something like 9300rpm. Since this represents a BMEP figure of something in the order of 215psi it is a considerable achievement.
Of course, this didn't happen overnight, it's taken some years to develop it to the present pitch and I know that Rupert won't even think about how much it's cost!
