BMW Motorsport - 100 years of racing
BMW motor racing began in January 1924, when designer Rudolf Schleicher took off in a BMW R 32 for a cross-country drive from Munich to Garmisch. Since 1929, BMW has also been represented in international automobile motorsport in a wide variety of racing series. At times, the focus was on Formula 1, where BMW was mainly active as an engine supplier and for a short time with its own team.
In addition, BMW is involved in touring car racing, endurance racing and Formula E. The company also ran Formula BMW as an entry-level class of Formula racing and a precursor to Formula 3. BMW also traditionally competes in various racing classes in motorbike racing, from 2009 to 2013 in the Superbike World Championship.
In addition to classic fan apparel in BMW Motorsport design, Paddock Legends also offers a large selection of BMW model cars from a wide range of racing series.
