In 2020 there will be no overall ranking for the BMW customer sport competition. Because of the numerous postponements and cancellations in individual racing series, that would make no sense.
The Race Trophy has been an essential pillar of BMW Motorsport activities since 2014. All private BMW racing drivers who compete in one of the racing series rated for the Race Trophy are eligible to participate. In 2020, 25 racing classes would have been classified in 21 international and national championships.
Points in the Race Trophy are awarded according to a complex evaluation key for the results of the respective racing events. Since the corona crisis affects the different classes differently, a fair distribution of points cannot be guaranteed.
BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director Marc Bongers: “Working with our private BMW riders and teams in the international and national championships is very important to us. The Race Trophy brings together the entire BMW Motorrad Motorsport family from all over the world, and this community is very important to us.
With the Race Trophy, we honor the successes that our private racers celebrate around the world. However, the Corona crisis is currently having an immense impact on racing worldwide. In many series in which BMW private drivers are involved, races have already been postponed or canceled. It is currently not foreseeable when the racing season can begin in the respective countries, how many races can actually be held and what the individual calendars will ultimately look like.
Against this background, a fair distribution of points and thus equal opportunities for the Race Trophy overall ranking would not be possible this year. We therefore decided that there will be no overall ranking this season. We think that the international BMW Race Trophy family understands this step and still remain connected to our many private drivers around the world as a community. ”
