For example, the additional “Superpole Race” with its own points system in the WorldSBK and the scoring system in the Superstock class of the British Superbike Championship. The Race Trophy bonus points system has been simplified. The number of void results has also been adjusted in some championships.

There will also be prizes for the riders and teams who win the title in their championship, and in the categories of “Best BMW Rider in Class” and “Newcomer of the Year”.
