The whole BMW Motorrad GoldBet SBK Team sends its sincere condolences to the family and the team of Italian rider Andrea Antonelli, who died this afternoon in a tragic crash.

Our thoughts and prayers are with them in these difficult times.

This devastating news has made the sporting aspects secondary. After the incident, it was decided to cancel the activities scheduled for the rest of the day.

In the first scheduled race of the Superbike class, which was held before, BMW factory riders Marco Melandri (ITA) and Chaz Davies (GBR) had finished first and second.
