Szoke slips down Motorrad Trophy rankings

Jordan Szoke’s bad luck before the Canadian Superbike season finale means he’s slipped down the BMW Motorrad Trophy rankings.

The BMW Motorrad Trophy is a prize given to the world’s top privateer who pilots a BMW; contestants are able to rack up points in race series from around the world, including national superbike races as well as high-profile races like the Isle of Man series.

The current Motorrad trophy leader is German racer Markus Reiterberger, who’s racked up wins in his country’s national superbike series and in FIM Endurance World Championship. He has 20,375 points to Michael Dunlop’s 19,938 points (garnered in Isle of Man and British Superbike racing). Third place now belongs to Frenchman Emilien Jaillet, who has been racking up points in the European Bikes class of his country’s superbike series. He’s currently sitting on 19,300 points.

Jordan Szoke looked like he had the potential to finish quite high in the standings this year, reaching as high as third at one point. However, missing the two CSBK races at Mosport means he’s now down to seventh place, with 15,350 points, with no potential to earn any more in Canada this year. We haven’t heard any rumours of Waznie Racing heading overseas to other race series BMW has sanctioned for their privateers’ trophy, so we’re guessing that’s the end of this year’s opportunity.
