This weekend, the BMW M6 GTLM Art Car designed by US artist John Baldessari enjoyed a much-heralded race outing at the 24 Hours of Daytona (USA). Dr. Thomas Girst, Head of Cultural Engagement BMW Group, and BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt gave a press conference at the event, during which they announced that the 18th BMW Art Car, designed by Chinese artist Cao Fei, will be presented to the public in Beijing (CHN) at the end of May. The BMW M6 GT3 will take to the track at the FIA GT World Cup in Macau (MAC) in November.

Formula E: António Félix da Costa on promotional tour in New York.

BMW works driver António Félix da Costa (PRT) spent two days in New York (USA) last week to promote the debut of the FIA Formula E Championship in the “Big Apple”. Races nine and ten of the season will take place on 15th and 16th July in the district of Brooklyn, which boasts a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline. Félix da Costa took his Formula E powerhouse onto the track for a demonstration – and with big-name support: American Football star Victor Cruz (USA) of the NFL team New York Giants took the opportunity to get a taste of Formula E before the races in July. Félix da Costa continued his promotional tour in New York with a host of media appointments. “We’ve had good experiences so far in Formula E with how we approach new cities,” said Félix da Costa. “I think New York is going to raise the bar on any other city. I can’t wait to race here for real in July.”
