#ForeverForward: Philipp Oettl named 2015’s top overtaker

#ForeverForward: Philipp Oettl named 2015’s top overtaker

Germany’s Philipp Oettl wins Dunlop’s #ForeverForward league, performing the most overtakes in 2016.

German Moto3 ™ star, Philipp Oettl, has been presented with the Dunlop #ForeverForward Trophy for the top overtaker from the 2015 FIM Moto2™ and Moto3™ World Championships.

Dunlop, the Official Tyre Supplier to the two championships, launched the #ForeverForward league last year to highlight the intuition, commitment and determination of the World’s best young riders in these incredibly competitive championships.

In an action packed 2015 season, Oettl gained an impressive 132 positions during the 18 races. His season included some particularly impressive charges through the field, including him optimising his tyre choice in changeable conditions at Indianapolis to make rapid progress from 34th to 3rd. This was the race that the Schedl GP KTM rider described as his most memorable of the year.

James Bailey, Director, Motorsport PR and Communications: “We are delighted to recognise Philipp’s fightbacks with the inaugural Dunlop #ForeverForward trophy. There are very few other championships in the world that have so much overtaking and such intense battles. The #ForeverForward league brings another talking point to these fantastic championships and helps showcase their deep level of talent and racecraft.”

Dunlop has announced that the #ForeverForward league will continue into 2016. At the end of the year, the rider (from either the Moto2™ or Moto3™ championship) who has made the most progress from grid position to race result during the season will be crowned as the second Dunlop #ForeverForward trophy winner.
