TRIUMPH have run the Triumph Triple Trophy for the past two seasons in Moto2, the 2022 season of which is the fourth with Triumph engines. 

The Trophy has a renewed point structure for 2022, with seven points being awarded for the rider who makes up the most positions during the race; six points being awarded to the rider who takes pole position; and five points awarded to the rider who sets the fastest lap in the race.

In a statement from Triumph, their Chief Product Officer, Steve Sargent, said, “To highlight the closeness and intensity of [Moto2] racing the Triumph Triple Trophy scoring has been changed this year to reward the rider who makes the biggest improvement from their qualifying performance to their final position in the race.” He continued, “This will help to highlight some great performances from riders who may not be at the front and will really show how competitive Moto2 is throughout the whole field.”

Carlos Ezpeleta, Managing Director of Dorna Sports, added, “We couldn’t be happier with the way Moto2 has evolved over the last few seasons with Triumph powering the class.” 

Ezpeleta continued, “The collaboration has created fantastic racing in Moto2, and I don’t think riders who progress to MotoGP have ever been better prepared to make the step.”

The prize for the winner of the Triumph Triple Trophy at the end of the season is a custom-liveried Triumph Street Triple RS motorcycle, which is powered by the 765cc three-cylinder motor from which the spec Moto2 engine is derived.

After round one of the series, Celestino Vietti leads the Triumph Triple Trophy standings with 11 points, after setting both pole position and the fastest race lap on his way to taking a dominant first win in the intermediate Grand Prix class by over six seconds.
