Clubman's Trophy established for Supermoto privateers - May 18th 2005

    In a bid to encourage more privateers into the Vivaldi British Supermoto Championship the organisers have announced the establishment of a Clubman's Trophy for SM1 and SM2 competitors.

    The championship within a championship is open to smaller teams and individual riders who don't have the budget or equipment to mix it with the factory and distributor backed teams vying for outright honours.

    A "classification maxima" will be introduced from the second round of the championship at Warden Law Motorsport Centre in Sunderland that will see riders that don't record a time within a predetermined cut-off automatically "qualify" for the Clubman's Trophy. In certain circumstances teams and riders will also be able to nominate for the Clubman's Trophy when they enter.

    Eddie Nelson said the introduction of the Clubman's Trophy is all about encouraging the grassroots of the sport to have a crack at the British Championship.

    "Many of the smaller privateer teams and riders are not in a position to challenge the factory backed teams so they're at a disadvantage before they start. By running the Clubman's Trophy we are hoping to encourage more competitors at a grassroots level to get involved with the British Championship and also give them recognition for their efforts at the same time."

    The Clubman's Trophy is open to SM1 and SM2 entrants, not qualifying for the British Championship races, with two, 15 minute (plus one lap) races. There will be a podium presentation at the end of each round and points will be awarded as per SM1 and SM2.
