Gabriele Piana and Hofor Racing are the winners of the Drivers’ and Team competitions in this year’s BMW Sports Trophy. BMW Motorsport traditionally honours the most successful privateers from the previous season at the end of the year. The ‘Night of Trophies’ at BMW Group Classic in Munich on Friday saw the coveted trophies presented at a joint evening with BMW Motorrad Motorsport for the first time. Furthermore, the new BMW M2 CS Racing was also presented live to the customer teams and drivers from around the world.
With 844 points to his name, Piana was top dog in the Drivers’ Competition during the 2018/19 scoring period. He was rewarded for his efforts with a winner’s cheque for € 30,000. His team-mate, 16-year-old Marius Zug, also picked up the trophy for the best young driver. In the Team Competition, Hofor Racing took victory for the first time. The 25 most successful drivers and the top ten teams shared a total prize purse of € 350,000. This season, 339 drivers and 71 teams were registered for the BMW Sports Trophy competitions.
