BMW Race Trophy
The fifth season of the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy kicked off in February at the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship (WSBK) and the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) at Phillip Island in Australia.
This year, BMW is distributing more than 100,000 euro in total prize money for the top participants, with a range of additional prizes. The “Season Finale Race” is also planned as a new highlight to round off the season.
In the 2018 season, points will be scored for the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy in 25 different team classes, in 20 international and domestic race series – from the WSBK to national championships on all continents. The Italian National Trophy 1000 (INT) is a new addition this year. The scoring period ends on 18th November.
As in the previous season, the 30 best riders in the final standings will be rewarded with prize money and trophies. There will also be prizes for the riders and teams that claim the title in their championship, as well as in the “Best BMW Rider in the Class”, “Race Finishers” and “Newcomer of the Year” categories.
The top participants in this year’s Race Trophy can also compete directly with one another on the racetrack. At the end of the season, the 15 best-placed participants in the Race Trophy ranking list and the “Best BMW Riders in the Class” will be invited to the “Season Finale Race”, a race weekend that will feature them competing against one another. More prize money is up for grabs there too.
Last season there were 159 registered participants from 26 nations. In the 2018 season, the BMW customer teams will once again be able to count on comprehensive support from BMW Motorrad Motorsport experts. Registration is open until 30th June 2018.
