PRADO WRITES HIS NAME ONTO THE PRESTIGIOUS MXGP CHAMPIONS TROPHY

MONACO (Principality of Monaco) 29 September 2023 –The MXGP of Great Britain hosted the final round of the 2023 MXGP Championship which saw the newly crowned World Champion Jorge Prado being presented with the remarkable MXGP Trophy by Infront Moto Racing CEO David Luongo during the podium ceremony.

The MXGP Trophy was introduced in 2020, marking the inception of a new tradition within the FIM Motocross World Championship. This prestigious trophy stands as a tribute to the past, present, and future champions of the premier MXGP class.

Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Jorge Prado now engraves his name onto the revered MXGP Champions Trophy for the very first time. His remarkable year unfolded with the acquisition of the Red Plate from the very first race, to never surrender it. Prado's extraordinary season also included 14 Race victories, 11 RAM Qualifying Race wins, 2 Grand Prix triumphs, 16 podium finishes, and an astounding 219 laps led, showcasing unwavering consistency.

Back in 2020, Team HRC's Tim Gajser became the inaugural recipient of this coveted cup as he clinched his fourth world title. In 2021, the trophy changed hands, finding a new home with Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Jeffrey Herlings, who secured his fifth Motocross World Title. Then in 2022, Gajser once again dominated the MXGP scene, earning his fifth MXGP World Title with an impressive tally of 10 Grand Prix victories.

About the trophy: The MXGP trophy is made up of two main materials, aluminium and carbon fibre base is formed by 6 pieces of anodized aluminium in three different shades: red at the bottom, and black and grey in the middle alongside the MXGP logo. In the grey parts we can find some filigrees inspired by motocross such as the starting gates of the tracks, the teeth on the bike sprockets, and more distinctive elements. The top of the trophy is formed by 16 twisted carbon fibre blades shaped into a cup to resemble the championship logo. The 20 stainless steel plaques wrapping the trophy are engraved with all the world champions’ names from 1957 until now in the main class.

The size and weight of the trophy symbolise the rugged nature of the competition, while its sharp, asymmetrical angles aim to encapsulate the precision and expertise of the riders, as well as the exhilaration and velocity of the races.

This exceptional trophy was crafted by the renowned Garcia Rojals Studio, based in Barcelona. The studio boasts an illustrious global reputation for its exceptional work in designing prestigious racing trophies, which includes the Moto GP World Championship Trophy and the World SBK Trophy.
