In both of these one-make cups and the BMW M2 CS Racing Cup NLS, the teams will have a choice of various performance levels for the BMW M2 CS Racing for the first time. As well as the variant with the 365-hp six-cylinder inline engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology, there is also a 450-hp version for more ambitious drivers. As the new ‘Technical Partner of BMW M Motorsport M2 CS Racing’, RECARO Automotive is supplying the race seats for this more powerful car, which is used in the one-make cups.
“The way the BMW M2 CS Racing has been received by teams and drivers is really impressive and shows that we have really hit the spot with the development of our new entry-level motorsport model,” says Thomas Felbermair, Vice President Sales and Marketing BMW M GmbH. “As well as the BMW M2 Cup in the DTM and the three one-make cups in Benelux, Italy and within the Nürburgring Endurance Series, the car will also compete in many other race series around the world. I am particularly pleased that we have found an equally fantastic partner for this fantastic car. I would like to extend a warm welcome to RECARO as ‘Technical Partner of BMW M Motorsport M2 CS Racing’.”
