WSB: Schumacher helps BMW develop new superbike

Formula One guru tests new S1000RR at Albacete

SEVEN-TIME Formula One champ Michael Schumacher is helping in the development of BMW's S1000RR superbike.

The German ace, who's recently been trying his hand at superbike racing with varying degrees of success, was spotted testing the new BMW S1000RR at Albacete circuit.

BMW have entered the bike in next year's World Superbike series and have secured Australian ace Troy Corser and Spaniard Rubens Xaus to pilot the 200bhp inline four machine.
