Arrow BMW M235i Racing Cup - Round 1

BMW M235i Racing Cup - Round 1
Trophée des Fagnes 2015 in Spa-Francorchamps was the scene for the première of the BMW M235i Racing Cup Belgium. In the same starterfield the BMW Clubsport Trophy drivers has their second round of the 2015 championship. One brand, two championships, one mission: sheer driving pleasure. Real racing.



STRONG MOTORSPORT GENES.
BMW Motorsport is expanding its range of cars within the BMW Sports Trophy Customer Racing programme.
From 2014, privateer BMW teams and drivers have the opportunity to line up at events with the new BMW M235i Racing. With the impressive performance figures, the production-based coupé meets all the basic requirements of a successful entry-level racing car.

The car has been used in series and events such as the VLN Endurance Championship and the Nürburgring 24 Hours on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. Looking ahead, the BMW M235i Racing should also be successful on international stages for BMW Sports Trophy drivers.
The motorsport genes are also easily recognisable in the production version of the BMW M235i Coupé, courtesy of the aerodynamically optimised body design. It is propelled by the most powerful petrol engine developed so far for a BMW M Performance Automobile: a six-cylinder in-line engine with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology. With a capacity of 2,979ccm, the racing version is capable of generating 333hp (245kW).

Motorsport-specific driving aids such as ABS, DSC and traction control ensure that the motorsport newcomers can also handle the BMW M235i Racing surely and safely. The car also comes with mechanical limited-slip differential, which is also available for the BMW M235i Coupé in the original BMW Parts range. The racing car is also fitted with features such as the FIA-certified safety cell and the modern safety tank. On top of this come components from the BMW M Performance Parts range, such as the rear and front spoilers, diffusor and carbon wing mirrors.

BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt says:
“The basis our engineers had to start with when developing the racing version of the BMW M235i Coupé was exceptionally good. The production models from the BMW M Performance Automobiles range are already incredibly sporty. Because of this, we did not have to make many modifications in order to get the BMW M235i Coupé up and running as a racing car. BMW Motorsport can look back on a long tradition of allowing ambitious teams and drivers an affordable way into motor racing – and of offering them an absolutely competitive car. While the BMW Z4 GT3 spearheads our range, the new BMW M235i Racing means we are now also excellently positioned for the coming years in the field of production-based racing cars.”

Brings back epic recent memory of last June lapping my F80 at Spa. Can't wait to be back next June 2016 with the M2!
