The young team finished fifth last year, this is a sensational achievement.

More results: Tyla Rattray/MX2 MOTOREX Racing: 11 world championship/runners-up titles Sven Breugelmann/MX3 Off-road: an array of titles MOTOREX’s strongest performance was in motocross, where Tyla Rattray and Sven Breugelmans won world championship titles in the MX2 and MX3 categories respectively. Tommy Searle picked up the runner-up title in the MX2 class for the second time in succession. Samuli Aro won the world championship title in the Enduro 3 class, while Ivan Cervantes (Enduro 1), Juha Salminen (Enduro 2) and Marko Tarkkala (Enduro 3) brought home three runners-up titles. This is further testimony to the impressive performance of our development partner KTM, because all these riders are members of the KTM factory team. What’s just as impressive is the fact that six of the nine top riders in the MX2 World Champion ship class rely on MOTOREX. Supermoto world champion Bernd Hiemer also lubricates his KTM with MOTOREX, while another KTM rider, Swiss Mat Rebeaud, triumphed in the Freestyle MX category by flying straight to first place in the internationally prestigious Red Bull X- Fighters series. These world-class performances are backed up by a clutch of national championship titles. Mike Lafferty and Russell Bobbitt – both KTM riders – were placed first and second in the US National Enduro series, while Max Nagl of KTM Red Bull became German MX Masters champion. Good results were achieved in Switzerland too, with Arnaud Tonus (MX 125 FMS), Chris Möckli (MX Open SAM), Philippe Dupasquier (Supermoto FMS) and Marcel Götz (Supermoto SAM) all becoming national champions with MOTOREX. Exciting on-road races MOTOREX put in another strong showing in on-road racing. In the US, Ben Spies and Mat Mladin from the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team dominated the AMA Superbike championship, finishing in first and second places in the final rankings. Joshua Brookes of the Hannspree Stiggy Honda team finished third in the final rankings of the Supersport World Championship. The G- Lab Triumph Team caused a furore in the Supersport category of the German international championship, as Arne Tode brought home the championship in the Competitive autosport classes There was good news from the autosport classes too. The highlight was undoubtedly Frédéric Vervisch’s victory in the German ATS Formula 3 Cup in a Zeller-Dallara. Peter Rikli and his fast Honda Accord drove their way to a runner-up title in the highly competitive ADAC Procar class, while in the GP2 European Championship, Sébastien Buemi demonstrated the extent of his talent with victories in Hungary, France and Indonesia. To the limits – and beyond! To the limits – and beyond! This is MOTOREX’s recipe for success in the sporting arena, a more punishing proving ground for competitors and machinery than any test rig. When victory is decided by mere fractions of a second, only absolute perfection will do. But MOTOREX’s involvement in racing is about much more than just titles: it’s about consistently advancing the high-quality products and the benefits they yield for the customers.
