Werner Daemen

Team Manager

Team principal Werner Daemen was once a racer himself, reaching the podium in the World Endurance Championship. The Belgian rider also claimed the first international win for the BMW S 1000 RR, in the IDM race at the Salzburgring in 2009. After he retired from racing, Daemen became the full-time team principal at his MRP Racing organisation - celebrating wins in several championships. He and his team have so far secured nine titles with BMW in the IDM and the European Stock 1000 Championship. The extensive experience of Daemen and his team are the key to the successful performances in the FIM EWC.
