When the 2017 TrialGP season kicks off in Camprodon, Spain on 13/14 May it will bring with it a new and added dimension with the event also marking the start of a new era in the fight to become the FIM Trial Manufacturers World Champion. With the Trial2 class having now gained full FIM World Championship status alongside the TrialGP class, equal weight has been given to both classes in the FIM Trial Manufacturers' World Championship.

Prior to the recent closing date, manufacturers were invited to nominate a maximum of two riders in each class who will be categorised as counting riders in the championship. Only the highest placed nominated rider in each class will score points for their respective manufacturer at each event. With all of this in mind the 2017 FIM Trial Manufacturers' World Championship is set to be one of the most hotly contested for many years.
