COLLIER TAKES CONTROL IN R&G ROOKIES’ TROPHY!By R&G in Superbike on on 02 August 2017



 

At the half way point in the season, Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup rider Joe Collier leads the way in the 2017 R&G Rookies’ Trophy having enjoyed a fantastic year to date; winning eight of his ten races so far. KTM rider Brian Hart is second, with fellow Ducati rider Levi Day in third.

With the Santander Consumer Finance KTM Junior Cup riders not in attendance at Brands Hatch last time out, Joe Collier took full advantage to score maximum points in his two Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup races and move ahead in the R&G Rookies’ Trophy standings. Collier now leads KTM rider Brian Hart by 15.75 points, with Hart in turn just six points ahead of Levi Day.

The Rookies’ Trophy is open to all competitors competing in their first full season in their respective class and points are awarded based on the rider’s performance compared to their fellow rookies in the class, irrespective of the overall finishing position. For 2017, the overall winner will receive £500 cash and £500 product support from R&G as well as a top-of-the-range LS2 crash helmet and a set of race tyres from the official tyre supplier to the MCE British Superbike Championship, Pirelli.

UK Moto Marketing Manager at Pirelli, Simon Carter, said “At the half way point in the season, and after six incredible rounds of racing, the 2017 R&G Rookies’ Trophy is looking just as unpredictable as ever! It’s great to see a mix of classes and riders at the top of the standings and I’m looking forward to seeing how the riders progress over the final half of the season. These competitors are the future of racing and Pirelli is pleased to be supporting the Trophy with a set of racing tyres going to the overall winner at the end of the season.”

Each weekend Eurosport commentator James Haydon selects one rider to be his Rookie of the Meeting and after two fantastic top ten finishes in the blue-riband Superbike class, alongside becoming the top Suzuki in the Championship standings, Bradley Ray was nominated the top rookie for Brands Hatch.
