Bonovo Action BMW WorldSBK Team Quits Due to "Personal Reasons"

The Bonovo Action BMW WorldSBK team has announced it will not be on the 2025 grid due to "personal reasons" for its owner, Jurgen Roder.

The Bonovo Action team joined WorldSBK in 2021 with Jonas Folger after two wildcard appearances in 2020. Since its first season, its links with BMW have deepened to the extent that this year it has the same level of factory equipment as the main ROKiT BMW Motorrad team that is currently leading the riders' standings with Toprak Razgatlioglu.

Jurgen Roder, team owner for the Bonovo Action team, said: “I will be stepping down for personal reasons from 2025 on, and consequently, Bonovo action will withdraw as a factory team from BMW. I would like to personally thank all the fans who have remained so loyal to us, who have shared in our joys and our hard times. Many, many thanks, because without the enthusiasm of the spectators and fans, such an endeavour would not be possible.


"You are carried by the euphoria and enthusiasm, which I have enjoyed over the past years, whether in the IDM or the World Championship. It was a wonderful feeling to bring joy to others with our riders and provide entertainment and happy moments.”

Marc Bongers, Sporting Director for BMW Motorrad Motorsport, said: "We regret Jürgen Röder’s decision not to continue his involvement in WorldSBK but understand it at the same time. We thank the entire Bonovo Action BMW Racing Team, Jürgen Röder, and team manager Michael Galinski, who have led the team with great passion and dedication, the riders, technicians, and mechanics, as well as all other involved parties for the excellent and professional collaboration in recent years.

"Now we will continue to give it our all together, in order to achieve success and secure strong results in the remaining races of this season.”

Bonovo Action's withdrawal from the end of 2024 means that its current riders, Scott Redding and Garrett Gerloff, are currently without rides for the 2025 season.
