In 2016 127 BMW racers from 25 different nations registered for the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy. The results of each individual are scored according to a scale that is meant to level the field in a sport with many different series formats. This years event saw participants from 83 different teams in 27 different championship series.
In 2015, Jordan Szoke stood on the same stage as the runner up to this award. In 2016, he scored his second perfect season in CSBK competition, vaulting him to the top of the podium at the BMW Museum in Germany, and garnered him and his team a healthy cheque for their efforts.
“To be the winner of the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy really means a lot to me,” said Szoke. “Last year I stood here on the stage as runner-up, and it is just a fantastic feeling to now have secured the first place. It makes me very proud to successfully represent Canada in this unique worldwide competition. The Race Trophy helps to bring international awareness to our series and also shows how good the racing is in Canada. The Race Trophy is a great concept that unites us BMW racers all around the world. It is great to be a part of it. And the extra support through the prize money and the bonuses is an awesome help for us riders.”
