2011 Triumph Triple Challenge Details Announced

This year, the Triumph Triple Challenge (TCC) will compete entirely within the British Superbikes (BSB) series. The TTC is backed by the Triumph factory and run in close co-operation with Motorsport Vision Racing (MSVR). All entrants compete on race tuned Daytona 675s and this year riders will benefit from a full training package provided by T3 Racing, the series' organiser.

The 2011 champion will move up for 2012 to either the Metzeler National Superstock 600 class if under 26 or the Fuchs-Silkolene British Supersport championship if aged 26-32, with a funded race package from T3 Racing for the 2012 season.

The supported ride will include a fully prepared bike, entry fees, tires/spares package, all delivered by a newly formed factory backed race team run by T3 Racing. If the winning rider is aged over 32, they will receive a Triumph Daytona 675R.

A second, part-funded ride will also be awarded in 2011. Based on each rider’s Academy results, professionalism and potential, an expert panel from Triumph, MSVR and T3 will choose the most deserving entrant to benefit from a supported ride with the T3 Racing Team in 2012.

The registration fee for the Triple Challenge series is £14,300 + VAT, which includes a race-prepared Triumph Daytona 675, entry fees for all nine races, tyres, support on suspension set-up and assistance from a race engineer, two races per weekend supporting nine rounds, media coverage and the benefits of the Triple Challenge Academy.

All riders in the championship will be housed in the new Triumph Village – where riders will prepare their bikes, undertake maintenance and benefit from the hospitality facilities, each race weekend.
