Woodcliff Lake, NJ – BMW Motorrad USA has announced the addition of Steve Weir, a BMW trained and authorized race support engineer, to its HP Race Support Team in the U.S.

“Steve is an independent consultant to BMW Motorrad USA, but is also available for hire to support privateer teams competing on the BMW S 1000 RR or BMW HP4 in races around the country,” commented Michael Hernandez, Manager, Parts and Accessories, for BMW Motorrad USA. “He has considerable experience as a race support engineer and racing BMW’s himself. We are thrilled to offer him as a resource to teams and riders on the S 1000 RR and using HP Race Parts with set-up and analysis.”

A former 2003-2004 CCS Unlimited Supersport Regional Champion and Speedscreen Unlimited Grand Prix Champion, Weir has multiple years of experience working with BMW Motorrad engine management systems, race data analytics, electronics, suspension and geometry.

Weir is available to offer racers daily, face-to-face hands-on support at racetracks around the country and custom optimization of the HP Race Calibration Kit (available at authorized BMW Motorrad retailers) for the bike and rider (a suitable data logging system is required).
