Goodyear and BTR Transportlogistik GmbH are also remaining loyal to the one-make trophy. As in the previous year, the tyre manufacturer will exclusively equip the BMW M2 CS Racing with racing tyres – thus contributing its years of experience in motorsport. When it comes to logistics, the cup continues to place its trust in Bruno Boes and his BTR team, who, as experts in event logistics, are up to the challenges of racing in the best possible way.
“As a support series of the DTM, the Cup again offers a strong marketing platform for drivers and partners this year. The Trophy and GT3 teams are also represented there – this also underscores the great importance of the championship for BMW M,” explains Franciscus van Meel, CEO of BMW M GmbH.
Additionally, 2022 is a special season for the Bavarian manufacturer: it is celebrating 50 years of BMW M. To honour this milestone, the anniversary is commemorated on the BMW M2 CS Racing in the one-make cup. “Of course, being part of the rich history of BMW M makes us very proud,” explains Michaelis. “It quickly became clear to us that we should celebrate accordingly during the season. We are all the more looking forward to the season opener and the BMW home round at the Norisring.”
The Cup’s BMW M2 CS Racing will also be back at the legendary Nürburgring – and not just as part of the DTM support programme. In the run-up to the 24-hour race at the end of May, the cars will be driven by BMW racing legends in the “BMW M Race of Legends” on the Grand Prix circuit.
