Did you catch the electrifying MotoGP™ 2023 that roared into India last weekend? Well, here’s a cool tidbit – BMW M cars and bikes took the spotlight as the official safety vehicles of the first ever MotoGP™ Bharat in India, held at the Buddh International Circuit from 22 to 24 September, 2023.
Picture this: four brand new safety vehicles revved up the excitement – three slick safety cars and one mean safety bike. The lineup included the BMW M2, BMW M3 Touring, BMW M5 CS, and the adrenaline-pumping BMW M 1000 RR. Each one ensuring that the race took off and ended with clock work precision.
BMW M Safety Vehicles have been leading the pack for over 25 years as the world’s best motorcycle riders compete at MotoGP™. With MotoGP™ debuting in India, it was an unparalleled chance for motorsport fans to witness these incredible BMW M Safety Vehicles in action, alongside their favourite riders on the racetrack.
The excitement doesn’t stop there for those who were a part of the BMW Excellence Club. Members were in the heart of all the action – from behind-the-scenes action to running into MotoGP™ riders and motorsports legends, the experience was next level.
Let’s talk cars now. The new BMW M2, a compact powerhouse with a 460 hp TwinPower turbo in-line 6-cylinder engine, was all decked out as a BMW M Safety Car. Safety features like a roll bar, RECARO seats, and a fire extinguisher were in place, ensuring safety on the track.
Next up, was the first-ever BMW M3 Touring MotoGP™ Safety Car. Imagine the perfect blend of performance and practicality in a five-door touring model. That’s exactly what this safety car offers – a tribute to 50 years of BMW M and their enduring partnership with MotoGP™.
And finally, the BMW M5 CS. A beast in special Frozen Deep Green metallic paint, it hits 0-100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds, with a top speed of 305 km/h. Pops and bangs are on the house.
Last but definitely not least, was the BMW M 1000 RR MotoGP™ Safety Bike – a super bike homologated for racing and a pure adrenaline rush on the racetrack.
BMW M and MotoGP™ have forged a deep partnership that’s revved up for over two decades, celebrating 25 incredible seasons. They share the same passion for high performance, adrenaline, and motorsports, and the Safety Cars are the epitome of driving dynamics and speed – just what you need for the ultimate race experience.
