BMW in the IMSA series.

Racing in North America.

Breathtaking cars, legendary racetracks, top-class drivers, and passionate fans. The IMSA series combines everything the motorsport heart desires. In the thick of it is the BMW M8 GTE, which competes at the four endurance classics of Daytona, Sebring, Watkins Glen and Road Atlanta in 2021. The Turner Motorsport team also fields the BMW M6 GT3 in the GTD class of the IMSA series. 

BMW M2 Cup / BMW M2 CS Racing Cup.

As well as the BMW M2 CS Racing Cup NLS, which takes place on Nürburgring Endurance Series race weekends, the BMW M2 CS Racing Cup Benelux in the Netherlands and Belgium, and the BMW M2 CS Cup Italy will also be held in 2021. The BMW M2 Cup, which features on the DTM programme, also offers talented youngsters and ambitious amateurs the opportunity to pursue their passion for motor racing, while at the same time presenting the BMW M2 CS Racing with a perfect stage at some of the most iconic racetracks in Europe.

24h Nürburgring.

Marathon through the "Green Hell".

For half a century, BMW has been taking on the biggest challenge in motorsport with great success. No other manufacturer has claimed so many victories in the past 50 years. After the 20th overall win last year, drivers and teams will once again line up with BMW cars in the "Green Hell" in 2021 with the clear objective of creating the next chapter in a unique success story.

AN OVERVIEW OF THE BMW M MOTORSPORT FLEET OF VEHICLES.

BMW M6 GT3.

The top-of-the-range model.

The figurehead on the GT racing scene. Having won the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps at the first attempt in its debut season in 2016, the car has continued its success story around the world and, two years later, claimed a highly-acclaimed one-two at the same venue. Last year, the top GT3 model actually managed to top even that. The 50th staging of the Nürburgring 24 Hours produced overall victory number 20 for BMW. In the Intercontinental GT Challenge, there was a one-two at the Indianapolis 8h and a title win, courtesy of the second victory of the season at the Kyalami 9h, to celebrate. The car is powered by a 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology. The power unit has dry sump lubrication and generates up to 585 hp – in a car weighing less than 1,300 kilograms.

BMW M4 GT4 on the racetrack.

The high-flyer.

In its very first year, in 2018, the BMW M4 GT4 enjoyed an impressive season. In total, it had 33 class wins and just short of 100 podium results to its name, as well as the title in the GT4 category of the British GT Championship. At the end of the season, the car was named "Race Car of the Year" at the Professional MotorSport World Expo Awards, on the back of its impressive successes. It more than lived up to that title over the following years, winning titles in the GT4 European Series in 2019 and GT4 France in 2020.

In 2021, the BMW M4 GT4 receives an evo package. The upgrade, which incorporates know-how from BMW M Motorsport and feedback from customers, will make the BMW M4 GT4 even more competitive and cost-efficient in the future.

BMW M2 CS Racing.

The new entry-level model.

With the BMW M2 CS Racing, BMW M Motorsport is continuing its tradition of production-based cars for the use of private teams and drivers. As with its two predecessors, the BMW M235i Racing and the BMW M240i Racing, the BMW M2 CS Racing allows an affordable route into motor racing. With two different performance levels, BMW M Motorsport also offers ambitious drivers another opportunity to take their ability at the wheel of a thoroughbred race car to a new level. The BMW M2 CS Racing can be used in the NLS as both a "Permit B" car with 365 hp of power, and as a "Permit A" car with 450 hp. For ambitious drivers, the 450-hp version also offers a fluent transition to the BMW M4 GT4. Providing the perfect basis for the new entry-level model is a special car from BMW M GmbH, the BMW M2 CS (fuel consumption combined in l/100km: 10.4 – 9.4 (NEDC); 10.1 – 9.2 (WLTP); CO2 emissions combined in g/km: 238 – 214 (NEDC); 229 – 210 (WLTP)).*

*Official data on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions were determined in accordance with the mandatory measurement procedure and comply with Regulation (EU) 715/2007 valid at the time of type approval. In case of a range, figures in the NEDC take into account differences in the selected wheel and tire size; figures in the WLTP take into account any optional equipment. WLTP values are used for assessing taxes and other vehicle-related charges that are (also) based on CO2 emissions, as well as for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies, if applicable. Where applicable, the NEDC values listed were calculated based on the new WLTP measurement procedure and then converted back to the NEDC measurement procedure for comparability reasons. For more information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures, see www.bmw.de/wltp.
