Gas Gas confirmed as Manufacturers Champions.
Having been in a tight contest with Beta in the early rounds, Gas Gas edged clear from the mid season onwards and in the end won the important Manufacturers Championship by a comfortable sixty two points. Making a late challenge, TRRS actually edged into second with double wins in the ACU Trial 2 and Trial Expert Classes in rounds seven and eight.
Whilst consistency is key to being at the sharp end when the points are added up, it is important for brands to have riders competing in all three counting classes with ACU Trial GB, Trial 2 and Trial Expert Classes all counting.
The final positions were Gas Gas (466 points) TRRS (404 points) Beta (393), Sherco (359). Scorpa were next followed by Montesa who both suffered events with no riders in various classes.
