We are used to see flashy and fast BMW`s in MotoGP competitions, as the organizers and the BMW M Division have formed an ideal combination for almost two decades. Since 1999, BMW M has been a permanent member of the international MotoGP family.
The successful partnership with organiser Dorna Sports has grown over the years. In 2014, Dorna Sports and BMW M Division extended their cooperation up to and including 2020. Partnerships like this, which span decades, are extremely rare in top-class international sport.
The partnership includes the provision of the Safety Car fleet. BMW M implements the latest technology in order to guarantee the safety of the MotoGP riders, whatever the conditions.
The Safety Cars are high-performance BMW M cars, raeady fot the racetrack. The latest example is the BMW M2 MotoGP Safety Car, which makes its debut this season. The Safety Cars are specially modified at the BMW M factory for their use as lead cars on the motorcycle racing scene. The same goes for all the other vehicles in the fleet.
BMW M Division’s commitment to MotoGP also includes numerous other activities. Since 2003, the BMW M Award has been presented at the end of the season to the best MotoGP qualifier.
