Canada's Szoke Finishes 2nd in the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy Challenge

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

In the second season of this special customer racing project a total of 104 BMW racers from 22 different nations and six continents took part. They raced for 73 different teams in 24 individual championship classes. The best of them were given their awards at the 2015 BMW Motorrad Motorsport Season Finale in the Double Cone in the BMW Welt in Munich (DE) on Saturday. At this event, the international BMW Motorrad Motorsport family met up to bid farewell to the 2015 season. One of the highlights of the evening was the tribute to the most successful participants in the 2015 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy. The top 15 were recognized with trophies and a total prize purse of 100,000 Euros.

First place went to Matthieu Lussiana (FR) who claimed the Brazilian Moto 1000 GP championship where he picked up a total of 436.69 Race Trophy points.
Second place went to Jordan Szoke (CA), the 2015 champion in the Canadian Superbike Championship (CSBK), with 429.67 points. Third was Roland Resch (AT), the 2015 champion in the Superbike class of the Alpe Adria Road Racing Championship (AARR SBK), with 414.73 points.

“What an achievement.” says Szoke when asked about his second place finish. “Not only for us, but for Canada to finish so high in the points. We of course would have liked to take home the #1 and it is what we will definitely aim for next season. We of course are overjoyed to represent not only Canada, but our respective sponsors that allow us to represent them during this prestigious event.”

“We can look back on a great second season for the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy,” said Heiner Faust, BMW Motorrad Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing. “The number of over 100 participants is impressive and shows how this project is appreciated among the BMW racers around the globe. The fact that our top three finishers race in championships on three different continents, and that the top 15 riders come from 11 different countries and ten racing series, is undoubtedly the proof that the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy really is a global success model. But it is not only that that makes us proud. In 2015, our BMW Motorrad Motorsport customers have continued their streak of success on the race tracks all around the world.”
