New regulations add to the attraction of the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy in 2015.Second season: new points system, more racing series and extra prize money.Munich, 19th February 2015. The BMW Motorrad Race Trophy is entering its second season – and is now even more attractive, thanks to new regulations. The competition, the only one of its kind in the world, for privateer BMW Motorrad riders, was launched in 2014. This innovative project allows BMW Motorrad Motorsport to offer its racing customers around the world the opportunity to compete for the title of the top BMW Motorrad privateer in the world, despite competing in completely different championships. In the competition’s inaugural season in 2014, 69 privateer riders took part in the BMW Race Trophy, contesting a total of 206 races across 19 countries in six continents. Victory in 2014 went to Markus Reiterberger (DE), who was rewarded with a winner’s cheque for 20,000 Euros.Certain areas of the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy regulations have been revised for the 2015 season. Among the most important of these is a new points system. Among other things, this makes it possible to react to changes to individual race calendars. Additional championships have also been included in the list of racing series, and more prize money will be distributed come the end of the season – not just to the riders, but also to successful privateer BMW Motorrad teams.“We were delighted that the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy attracted so much interest around the world in its inaugural season, and that we received such positive feedback,” said Berthold Hauser, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Technical Director. “This project has brought our global BMW Motorrad Motorsport family even closer together. It was great to see the enthusiasm with which our riders committed to the Race Trophy, and the ambition with which they followed the overall standings every week. We are confident that the new regulations will make the 2015 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy even bigger and more exciting.”“The BMW Motorrad Race Trophy was a great success in its first year,” added Udo Mark, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Marketing Director. “Based on the experience gained in 2014, we put our heads together over the winter and looked into ways to further optimise the concept and make the Race Trophy even more attractive for the competitors. Therefore, we have introduced a new points system, additional championships, more prize money for successful riders and teams, and a number of other new features to the regulations. We have further developed the Race Trophy and are now looking forward to an exciting battle for the title of the world’s top BMW Motorrad privateer in 2015.”The best BMW Motorrad riders and teams will be given their prizes in the Award Ceremony at the end of the season.
