Munich. BMW M Motorsport has signed Robin Frijns (NED) as a works driver. Among other things, the 31-year-old will be involved in BMW M Team WRT’s test work with the BMW M Hybrid V8. The LMDh prototype is being prepared to race in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in the 2024 season. Frijns’ first race outings will be decided at a later date. Frijns is the 22nd works driver in the BMW M Motorsport squad.

 

Robin Frijns was a member of the BMW M Motorsport family early on in his racing driver career. In 2010, he won the Formula BMW Europe title, making him the last champion in the junior racing series. Frijns went on to make a name for himself with success in various series including the DTM, in which he won three races and finished third overall in 2020. Together with the WRT team, Frijns was crowned champion in the LMP2 class in WEC in 2021 and also celebrated a class win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans (FRA). He won the Bathurst 12 Hour (AUS) in 2018, claimed the Blancpain GT Sprint title in 2017 and the Blancpain GT Series Driver’s title in 2015. In 2022, he was victorious at the Nürburgring 24 Hours (GER). The Dutchman has also enjoyed great success in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

 

Andreas Roos (Head of BMW M Motorsport): “With his versatility and wealth of experience in prototype racing, Robin Frijns is a fantastic addition to our squad of works drivers. He will initially be involved in the test programme with the BMW M Hybrid V8 for WEC. He knows the team and the race series very well and can certainly make a valuable contribution to a successful preparation for the 2024 season. A glance at his previous successes shows that Frijns is also an extremely good GT driver. However, we will make a decision regarding any possible race outings at a later date. First of all, we are very pleased to have him with us in the BMW M Motorsport family.”

 

Robin Frijns: “It is fantastic to return to BMW M Motorsport after so many years – the place it all started for me in Formula BMW Europe. I am looking forward to the new challenges, which will include being part of the test programme for the WEC entry in 2024 with the BMW M Hybrid V8. The prospect of driving this car and, in doing so, becoming part of a new golden era of motor racing is great motivation.”

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information are available at www.bmw.de/wltp and at www.dat.de/co2/.
