The Triumph Triple Trophy Competition returns for 2022 and will be awarded to the top points earner in the Moto2 class.
The prize of the Triumph Triple Trophy Competition is a custom Triumph Street Triple RS. In prior years, the accolade was awarded to Marco Bezzecchi in 2020 and Raul Fernandez in 2021. It’s an interesting point-based competition, set aside from the Moto2 championship and constructors titles.
The Triumph Triple Trophy Competition is a performance-driven contest with the following points structure:
• 7 points – Best race progression from start to finish: 7 points for the rider or riders making up the most positions from race start to checkered flag
• 6 points – Pole position: 6 points for the rider who qualifies on pole
• 5 points – Fastest race lap: 5 points for the fastest rider/riders in case of an equal fastest lap
The Triumph Triple Trophy Competition is already underway and after the season opener in Qatar at the Losail Circuit, Celestino Vietti is topping the leaderboard. The winner of the competition will be the rider that has earned the highest number of points, tallied at the end of the 2022 season.
“The Moto2 World Championship is incredibly close and in 2021 the category was redefined again with a total of 16 lap records falling, beating many of those already set using Triumph 765cc power. The 2022 season looks set to follow suit with some modifications to the engine helping to improve performance, as demonstrated by lap records being smashed in pre-season testing. To highlight the closeness and intensity of racing the Triumph Triple Trophy scoring has been changed this year to reward the rider who makes the biggest improvement from their qualifying performance to their final position in the race. This will help to highlight some great performances from riders who may not be at the front and will really show how competitive Moto2 is throughout the whole field. I am really looking forward to see which riders bring their A-Game to the track on a Sunday and I am sure the winner of the Triumph Triple Trophy will thoroughly deserve their one-off special Street Triple RS.” – Steve Sargent, Triumph’s Chief Product Officer.
“We’re very happy to join Triumph in celebrating the close competition in Moto2. The Triumph Triple Trophy is a great way to reward riders who have put in an impressive Sunday, and the Street Triple RS is an impressive prize. We couldn’t be happier with the way Moto2 has evolved over the last few seasons with Triumph powering the class. The collaboration has created fantastic racing in Moto2, and I don’t think riders who progress to MotoGP have ever been better prepared to make the step. We look forward to many more seasons of high caliber racing with Triumph!” – Carlos Ezpeleta, Dorna Sports Managing Director.
