From racetrack to road.
The BMW M8 GTE is the first BMW Motorsport race car to see action before its production counterpart. The GT sports car took part in its first race back in January, at the 24 Hours of Daytona. The BMW 8 Series Coupé’s big moment will come at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which takes place in June. It is here that the new BMW sports car for the luxury sector will be unveiled – an event that also represents a highlight within MISSION8 for BMW and BMW Motorsport. BMW Motorsport will accompany the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the unveiling of the BMW 8 Series Coupé with a magazine special and a dedicated online offering.
The race schedule once again takes BMW Motorsport on a world tour in 2019. From the BMW M8 GTE in Le Mans to the BMW M240i Racing at the Nürburgring – the entire BMW Motorsport fleet is in action, taking on the challenges encountered at racetracks all over the world. With the exception of Antarctica, there is no continent on the planet, on which BMW racing cars are not in action. From America to Asia, Europe to Australia: BMW Power in use globally and throughout the entire season.
