Since 2014, BMW Motorsport has provided customers with a cost-effective entry level car and an interesting platform in the form of the BMW M235i Racing and its own Cup class. This has become a real model for success and will feature in the next championship in 2018  – once again with the support of tyre partner Dunlop.
“Customer racing is a central pillar in the BMW Motorsport programme – and the BMW M235i Racing has proved to be the perfect entry-level model for motorsport since 2014,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “We are delighted to see the BMW M235i Racing Cup class on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife once again next season and to follow the battles for position that are always top-class and thrilling. The fact that up to 20 cars have regularly lined up on the starting grid in recent years confirms that we made the right decision to introduce this Cup class. The consistently high number of starters in the previous four years proves that the BMW M235i Racing has an optimum cost-benefit ratio. Now, we are looking forward to another year, which we will take on in collaboration with the drivers, teams and our long-standing tyre partner Dunlop.”
The BMW M235i Racing Cup class will compete at all VLN events, as well as at the 24 Hours Nürburgring. Only the VLN results will count towards the overall standings for the drivers, teams, gentleman drivers and juniors.

The best-placed drivers and teams will receive valuable material and cash prizes after each race, and at the end of the season. The BMW M235i Racing now also enjoys success in many other race series around the world.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
