As part of the VLN and Nürburgring 24 Hours, BMW Motorsport provides a separate cup class for the BMW M235i Racing as a platform to promote popular sport. This cup class is not a brand cup, rather with the BMW M235i Racing and its own cup class, BMW is offering customers a cost-effective entry-level model and a stage that is interesting for popular sport.

At the events at the "Green Hell", with equal and state-of-the-art vehicles, BMW customers can put their driving skills to the test against each other on the most difficult race track in the world.

Drivers and teams around the world will continue to compete with the current entry-level model, the BMW M235i Racing, in such competitions as the BMW M235i Racing Cup classes in Belgium and China. A total of 170 examples of the BMW M235i Racing have been built.

With the impressive performance figures, the BMW M235i Racing - a production-based coupé - meets all the basic requirements of a successful entry-level racing car. The car is used in series and events such as the VLN Endurance Championship and the Nürburgring 24 Hours on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. The BMW M235i Racing is also successful on international stages for BMW Sports Trophy drivers.

The motorsport genes are also easily recognisable in the production version of the BMW M235i Coupé, courtesy of the aerodynamically optimised body design. It is propelled by the most powerful petrol engine developed so far for a BMW M Performance Automobile: a six-cylinder in-line engine with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology. With a capacity of 2,979ccm, the racing version is capable of generating 333hp (245kW).

Dunlop is one of the world’s leading tire manufacturer in high and ultra-high performance tires. The tire brand stands for sportiness, emotion and driving pleasure. At the same time, the name also stands for one of the most important and most revolutionary inventions in the history of mobility: the pneumatic tire. It was invented in 1888 by the Scottish veterinarian John Boyd Dunlop.

Motorsport belongs to the genotype of Dunlop, so to speak. From the beginning, Dunlop’s success in nearly all areas of motorsport stretches throughout the company´s history. Whether as an exclusive tire partner or in direct competition, whether in the top-class or newcomers area, whether on two or on four wheels – the incentive is to supply always the best possible tires for top performances.

This not only applies to the race track. Also in public traffic, Dunlop drivers can trust in the fact that their tire provides maximum grip for maximum driving pleasure. This is because the technologies for our street tires derive directly from our motorsport-know-how.

As an official partner of BMW Motorsport, Dunlop supplies racing tires in the size of 265/660 R18 exclusively developed for the premier season of the BMW M235i Racing Cup. In addition, Dunlop also offers professional technical support as well as tire service for all BMW teams at the race track.
