The anniversary week of BMW M is in full swing and the center piece will be the 24h Nurburgring. The best part is that we will be there to take it all in and bring it to you.
BMW M was founded on 24th May 1972, and this week it celebrates its 50th birthday at the 50th staging of the Nürburgring 24 Hours. The focus will be on the BMW M4 GT3, which is set for its race debut at the endurance classic, which BMW M Motorsport teams have won 20 times in the past. However, the 24h Nurburgring is just part of the weekend. BMW M has a full support program including the BMW M Race of Legends, the M Korso, and M Town.
In the 24-hour race, a total of seven BMW M4 GT3s will be looking to battle for overall victory. Recent wins for ROWE Racing and the BMW Junior Team in the Nürburgring Endurance Series and the 24h Qualifiers have demonstrated the great potential of the new M4. It now faces the ultimate test on the most demanding racetrack in the world.
As well as the BMW M4 GT3, many other BMW M Motorsport cars will also line up on the grid; the BMW M4 GT4, the BMW M2 CS Racing, the BMW M240i Racing, and other race cars assembled by private teams take the total number to roughly 30 BMWs, which will take on the challenge of the 24-hour race.
