Moto Ain win EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy
Moto Ain made a clean sweep in Germany, claiming the €4,000 prize for the winner of the EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy, the Superstock win and the FIM Endurance World Cup. Moto Ain came in ahead of Wójcik Racing Team 2 and BMRT 3D Maccio Racing. The EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy offered a total purse of €20,000 to the 10 fastest Dunlop-shod privateers in this race.
Moto Ain ran their finest race of the season in Germany. Having finished 4th overall and 1st in the Superstock class in the saddle of Moto Ain’s Yamaha, Roberto Rolfo, Robin Mulhauser and Stefan Hill won Moto Ain the FIM Endurance World Cup as well as the €4,000 cash prize awarded to the winner of the EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy. Polish squad Wójcik Racing Team 2 (Marek Szkopek, Kamil Krzemien and Philipp Steinmayr), who finished 6th, took home the €3,000 prize paid out to the Dunlop Trophy runner-up in 8-hour races.
BMRT 3D Maccio Racing rounded off the EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy podium thanks to their riders Anthony Loiseau, Jonathan Hardt and Jimmy Maccio, winning the €2,700 prize awarded to the EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy’s second runner-up.
Seven other privateer teams using Dunlop tyres received prize money at the 8 Hours of Oschersleben, with payouts ranging from €2,300 down to €500 for the team ranked 10th in the EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy.
Renewed for the 4th consecutive season by FIM EWC promoter Eurosport Events, the organizers of individual FIM EWC races, and tyre manufacturer Dunlop, the EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy gives backing to Dunlop-shod privateer teams that do not benefit from direct support from a constructor.
