Munich. Both riders for the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team, Eugene Laverty (IRL) and Tom Sykes (GBR), are normally at home on race tracks around the world. Now they have had the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the many facets of the BMW Group during a visit to Munich (GER). They were accompanied by a camera crew during their visit. The result is a series of three short films that show the riders from a different perspective and provide some exclusive behind-the-scenes insights at BMW Group in Munich.


Part 3: Experience BMW M.


In the third and final part of the video series, it’s all about M, the most powerful letter in the world: Laverty und Sykes immerse themselves in the high-performance world of BMW M. Markus Flasch, CEO of BMW M GmbH, takes the duo on an exclusive tour through the M Studio and the workshop, showing them the current and upcoming high-performance BMW M automobiles. In addition to the production cars, this includes the BMW M2 CS Racing, a racing car with which the BMW M Customer Racing teams compete for example at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife (GER).


After the theory, it’s on to the practical: Everyone knows that Sykes and Laverty can drift perfectly on two wheels. At BMW Driving Experience in Maisach (GER), also part of BMW M GmbH, now they do it on four wheels – it’s donut time! So, plenty of action for the two WorldSBK riders to round off their trip to Munich.


The film “Experience BMW M” is available online on the BMW Motorrad YouTube channel:

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:
