Munich. From the 2021 season onwards, BMW M Motorsport will be collaborating with tolimit to introduce a BMW M2 Cup in the support programme for the DTM. The BMW M2 CS Racing, as new entry-level model in the BMW M Motorsport product portfolio for customer racing, is intended to give young drivers the chance to compete against one another on the great DTM stage and prove how talented they are.

 

“With the BMW M2 Cup, we want to provide an attractive, affordable platform for talented drivers, allowing them to prove their driving skills in the DTM environment and to allow them to make the step up if they are successful,” said Thomas Felbermair, Vice President Sales and Marketing BMW M GmbH. “I am delighted that we have been able to choose tolimit as our partner for the execution of the one-make cup, as they will provide total support for our focus on driver development and also boast decades of experience in motorsport.”

 

At six DTM race events, the BMW M2 Cup will feature a total of twelve races on the following circuits: the Norisring (GER), the Lausitzring (GER), the Nürburgring (GER), the Red Bull Ring (AUT), at Assen (NED) and Hockenheim (GER). The most successful drivers will receive support and get the chance to make competitive appearances in other BMW race cars in subsequent years. This can apply to the customer racing area but they would also potentially be within striking distance of the BMW Junior Team that was rebooted in 2020. This additional platform broadens the range of candidates from which the BMW Motorsport management can select new members of future BMW Junior Teams.

 

The concept for the BMW M2 Cup is absolutely focused on equal opportunities and transparency. Centralised preparation and the inclusion of technical skills from dealers certified by BMW M Motorsport, and the allocation of cars before each event, clearly show that the priorities for this one-make cup are driver training and honing individual skills.

 

The role of main contractor is taken by the team of experts from tolimit GmbH, a company that has made a name for itself in various areas of customer racing and talent development over the past 25 years.

 

More details about the race series and the registration process will be published shortly on the website https://bmwm2cup.com.

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: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
