Mille Miglia, motorcycle racing or Formula One: from the outset, BMW was one of the most active and successful brands in motorsport – on two, three and four wheels. BMW Group Classic’s Historic Motorsport division has set itself the task of providing maintenance and restoration for historic racing cars and bikes and returning them to the race track. Repeatedly, the Historic Motorsport division furnishes incontrovertible proof that speed is like riding a bicycle: once learnt, never forgotten.
There are other spectacular racing classics with which we bring the glory days of BMW Motorsport back to life. As an example, a BMW E30 M3 and an M1 were on hand as race taxis at all 10 DTM races as part of the support programme. Select models are also actively deployed at the Oldtimer Grand Prix, the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Goodwood Revival, the Ennstal Race Car Trophy, the Zandvoort Historic Grand Prix, the Rossfeld Bergrennen, the Baiersbronn Classic, the DTM Track Test Hockenheim and the Techno Classica Essen. Among the highlights: the BMW R 50 Kaczor was completely assembled as a replica and unveiled before a delighted crowd at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival.
