Week after week, BMW teams and drivers around the world do battle for points, victories and titles. Away from the track too, members of the large BMW Motorsport family around the world are also creating headlines. The “BMW Motorsport News” allows us to regularly summarise all the action for you in a compact and informative manner. This way, you are always up to speed.


Italian GT: GT4 title win for BMW Team Italia.
The big winners of the season finale of the Italian GT Sprint Championship in Vallelunga (ITA) are Francesco Guerra and Simone Riccitelli (both ITA). The BMW Team Italia duo won the final race of the season in their BMW M4 GT4 and this victory saw them move up into first place in the GT4 Pro Am standings. Guerra and Riccitelli started the race in second place in the overall rankings, but were able to turn the tables in the final spurt and celebrate winning the title. In the GT3 category, Marius Zug (GER) and Stefano Comandini (ITA) in the BMW M6 GT3 finished on the podium in third place in the first of the two sprint races in Vallelunga. They finished 13th in the second race. In the overall rankings for GT3, Zug and Comandini are in sixth place.

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:
