BMW replaces Hauser as managing director

Bernhard Gobmeier takes on the role of managing director for BMW Motorrad from the 2011 World Superbike season.
BMW Motorrad has announced further changes to its team structure with the appointment of Bernhard Gobmeier in place of Berthold Hauser.

Gobmeier takes on the role of managing director for BMW's World Superbike efforts, as well as all other BMW Motorrad Motorsport activities.

It is the latest phase of a restructuring among BMW Motorrad's top ranks following the confirmation that team principal Davide Tardozzi had left by 'mutual consent'.

"I'm looking forward to taking on this new challenge in a top-class race series with a professional racing team and two strong riders,” Gobmeier, who has overseen the chassis development of the BMW S1000RR since 2008, said.

“Our aim is clear: to build consistently on the positive foundations which Berthold Hauser and his team have put in place over recent years, so that we can be in a position to win races on merit as soon as possible."

Leon Haslam joins Troy Corser at BMW next season.

Patrick, alstare is part of the suzuki family , don't forget it ! Leave the germans making all their changes , which hopefully will be in the positive way for both riders Corser and Haslam. This team is moving in a strange way but not convinced in the right way. What a mess all this year for them...no progress also if they invest a lot of money compare to aprilia who was a real explosion / deserving their title. Would have seen Haslam in Aprlia instead of the still ...slowly progressing BMW.
