Öhlins Racing UK has launched a reward scheme with a difference to help support British Superbike championship riders.

British Supersport and Superstock riders who choose Öhlins products for the 2013 season and have registered their details with Öhlins Racing UK will be entered into the league and their results monitored.

Points will be awarded to the three riders that have improved their race finish position the most compared to their qualification position.

The three riders in each series that have accumulated the most points at the end of the season will be entitled to an Öhlins product voucher to a retail value of £2500, £1000 and £500 giving a complete prize fund of £16,000.

Chris Witter, Öhlins Racing UK’s Business Development Manager, commented, “We really want to reach out and support riders throughout the British Superbike paddock with the best equipment, expert advice and now a scheme to pay back those riders who invest in Öhlins and prove themselves throughout the season.

"After much discussion we decided upon this system to reward riders who select the best set-up for full race distance rather than just achieve a fast qualifying lap. We all understand that budgets have never been tighter across all motorsport and we believe this is a small way of helping riders who need it most.”
