Szoke Takes the Lead in International BMW Race Trophy
It was another perfect season for Jordan Szoke (CA) in the Canadian Superbike Championship (CSBK). As he did in 2015, he again took seven wins in seven races on his BMW S 1000 RR. The Mopar Express Lane BMW Superbike Team rider completed his clean sweep at last weekend’s season finale held at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville (CA). Szoke remained unbeatable in the final two races of the year and was crowned champion for the second time in a row and the 11th time overall.
After just one week, the 2016 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy has a new leader again. Jordan Szoke (CA) ended his season in the Canadian Superbike Championship (CSBK) with another double win at Bowmanville (CA) and took the top position in the standings with 410.00 Race Trophy points. New in second place is Vincent Lonbois (BE) with 362.45 points after claiming a win and a second place at the Finnish round of the International Road Racing Championship (IRRC) in Imatra. The previous leader, road racer Michael Dunlop (GB / BMW RRC), is now third with 332.30 points (see full standings below).
The 2016 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy is comprised of 20 championships with 27 different classes, staging 280 races on 84 circuits in 24 countries on six continents.
“I couldn't claim any more points.” says Szoke. “We won every race, every pole, earned our championship, Team of the Year, and broke track records. Here’s hoping it will earn us, and our country, a BMW Motorrad Race Trophy.”
