MotoGP™ "Champions Tower" Replica
The Trophy documents the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship's illustrious history, whilst identifying with the vibrant image of the modern day series. A carbon fiber base supports a "Champions Tower" of silver plaques for each of the 70 winners of the past seasons in the oldest World Championship in motorsports.
The Trophy expresses the MotoGP™ values of innovation, youth, dynamism, excitement, technology, passion and heritage.
Each year the newly crowned MotoGP™ World Champion adds the current plaque bearing his name at the FIM MotoGP™ Awards Ceremony, and takes home a smaller replica of the Trophy.
The replica that is given to the winners is made of nickel plated brass for the plaques and carbon fiber for the base as the original one.
The Trophy is designed to be an emblem of the MotoGP™ World Championship for years to come, and as such space has been dedicated for each future FIM MotoGP™ World Champion to leave their mark.
"The trophy project for the MotoGP™ World Championship is unique and was a challenge for me because of its symbolism. Not only did need to have a visual impact, but it also had to represent the values of the oldest motorcycle championship in the world.
Making this trophy, I was inspired by the Tower of Babel. The motorcycle World Championship is made up of riders from every continent and of different nationalities, brought together with a single objective: win and have their name written on the highest part of the trophy".
Marc Garcia, MotoGP™ Trophy designer
