Dunlop launch new overtaking league in Moto2™ and Moto3™

Dunlop launch new overtaking league in Moto2™ and Moto3™

The FIM Moto2™ and Moto3™ World Championships are globally renowned as the showcase for the best young motorcycle racing talent.

There’s another reason why the championships are so popular with fans; the sheer amount of action and overtaking.

Dunlop, the Official Tyre Supplier to the two championships, has launched a new overtaking league table that will focus on the battles that take place throughout the field, to determine who are the best riders in wheel-to-wheel combat.

The #ForeverForward league table will be published after each race on www.motogp.com and will show which riders have made the biggest improvement from their starting position to where they finish. At the end of the year, the rider (from either championship) who has made the most progress during the season will receive the prestigious new Dunlop #ForeverForward trophy.

“In recent seasons, Moto2™ and Moto3™  has provided compelling viewing for spectators and thrilling action for TV viewers. We asked fans why they love these championships and they told us it was the overtaking, the battles and the fighting throughout the field. In a world where many racing championships get criticised for providing processional races we believe this award, and the debate it will create on social media, will attract new audiences to the excitement of these championships.” stated James Bailey, Director, Motorsport PR and Communications.

The #ForeverForward hashtag will be used on the @DunlopMoto Twitter feed to create conversations around the best overtaking moves at each race.  A video highlighting the best overtaking moves will be released on www.motogp.com on the Monday afternoon following each race event.
