ASBK gets BMW Motorrad Race Trophy status


The curtain raises for the next round of the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy: 2016 marks the third season for this unique competition for privateer BMW racers worldwide.

For this year BMW Motorrad Motorsport has expanded the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy. The number of racing series has been increased and a further bonus prize for successful participants has been introduced.

Among the newly added series is the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK).

As part of its long-term strategy in motorsport, BMW Motorrad introduced the Race Trophy in 2014. This project forms a major pillar of the comprehensive worldwide customer sports programme of BMW Motorrad. Any BMW S 1000 RR rider competing in one of the listed championships can take part free of charge in the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy, and battle it out with other BMW racers from different series, nations and continents to be crowned the best BMW Motorrad privateer in the world.

According to their results in their respective championships, the participants receive Race Trophy points for a joint ranking. The rider who collects the highest number of Race Trophy points over the scoring period wins the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy.

In its first two years, the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy has grown to be a global success. In the inaugural 2014 season, 69 BMW riders registered. Last season, this number increased by over 50 per cent to a total of 104 participants from 22 different nations and six continents. The aim for the future is to continuously grow the international family of BMW Motorrad race riders.

The Details

Within these 21 racing series, Race Trophy points can be scored in a total of 28 different championship classes. The complex and balancing points system that was introduced last year has proven its worth and will also be used in 2016. The scoring period starts on Friday, 19th February 2016 and ends on Sunday, 4th December 2016. Once again, the participants can compete in more than one championship.

The points they score in the different championships are calculated separately for each individual series. Only the points from the race series in which the participant has scored the greatest number of Race Trophy points at this point in time are included in the overall standings.

The best BMW Motorrad riders and teams will be given their prizes at the 2016 BMW Motorrad Motorsport Season Finale in December. The 2016 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy features a total prize purse of 100,000 Euros. This prize money is divided between the top 15 participants. The winner receives a cheque for 20,000 Euros.

In addition to the prize money, BMW Motorrad Motorsport rewards its successful customers with bonus payments: the ‰ÛÏChampionship Bonus‰Û
