BSK SPEEDWORKS, F1 CLASSIC
After winning BHR BEARS championships in 2013 and 2015 with his BMW K100RS, Ben Kingham of BSK Speedworks took another German shaft-drive four found under a hedge and turned it into an endurance racer to co-ride with Stacey Kilworth. Kingham’s business specialises in performance parts for the Ks and his expertise was rewarded with top spot in the F1 Classic class and 18th overall.
The flying brick has a standard chassis with modified suspension and quick-release wheels. A stainless four-into-one exhaust is a catalogued BSK product, while the fuel injection system was developed for Mini A-series car engines that use a K dohc topend. Ignition is triggered by a rotor in a neat see-through box and powered by a light lithium battery, changed at each pit stop.

Seasoned BSK team’s faith in BMW reliability paid off
