Munich. The winner of the 2018 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy is: Danny Webb (GBR). The reigning International Road Racing Championship (IRRC) champion picked up a total of 485 out of a possible 500 Race Trophy points. This saw him clinch victory by a hair’s breadth with a thrilling head-to-head race at the top. Michal Filla (CZE) finished in second place with 483.02 points, less than two points behind. Third place went to Ilya Mikhalchik (UKR).

 

BMW Motorrad Motorsport awarded a total prize fund of 100,000 euros this year, which was divided among the 30 best-placed participants. On top of this were bonuses in various categories, for example, for the 11 riders and teams that won the championship title in their series, for the “Best BMW Rider in Class” or for the “Best Newcomer”. The BMW Motorrad Race Trophy, which was launched in 2014, was held for the fifth time this year. 139 riders from 19 different nations registered for the Race Trophy this season. They competed for 85 teams in 25 different championship classes.

 

The BMW Motorrad Race Trophy rankings are calculated using a complex system. A rider can attain a maximum of 500 points, regardless of how many races are held in their respective championship. They consist of race points for results in the races, as well as bonus points, for example, for pole positions and winning the championship title.

 

Race Trophy winner Danny Webb dominated the International Road Racing Championship on his Wepol Racing by Penz13 BMW S 1000 RR. The Brit picked up the full number of championship points in each race and secured the IRRC championship title at the penultimate round of the season in August. This performance also made him one of the favourites in the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy. He ended up bagging 485 points in the Race Trophy and securing the winner’s prize money of 15,000 euros.

 

Webb had a fierce rival, however, in Michal Filla of the Czech Republic, who made an impression in the Alpe Adria Road Racing Championship Superstock class (AARR STK). The BMW Sikora Motorsport rider won the first nine of the twelve races of the season on his RR. It was only in the tenth race that his winning streak came to an end, but by then Filla had already secured the championship title. Filla picked up 483.02 points in the Race Trophy – not even two points behind Webb. He finished the head-to-head race in second place, with a cash prize of 10,000 euros.

 

Third place in the 2018 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy also went to a champion who picked up win after win in his championship, Ilya Mikhalchik of the alpha Racing-Van-Zon-BMW team. The Ukrainian celebrated winning the title in the International German Championship (IDM). In the 14 races of the season, Mikhalchik topped the podium as winner nine times. He picked up a total of 466.18 points in the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy. He received a cash prize of 7,500 euros for finishing third.

 

“Congratulations to the winner Danny Webb and all successful participants of the 2018 Race Trophy,” said BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director Marc Bongers. “We experienced another season packed with thrilling races with victories and triumphs for BMW riders around the world. We are proud of our customers’ successes and thank them for representing the BMW Motorrad colours so impressively all over the world. Once again, they were supported by our extensive network of BMW Motorrad Motorsport experts. And with success, the riders involved in the Race Trophy picked up 100 wins and a total of 383 podiums this season – on the racetrack as well as at major international road races, including the Isle of Man TT and the Macau Grand Prix. This year they celebrated title wins in no fewer than 11 international and national championships. What a result! We look forward to supporting the privateer BMW racers around the world with our proven customer racing programme once again in 2019 – and to further successes for the BMW Motorrad Motorsport community.”

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
