Casey Stoner will leave Spain on Wednesday with a brand new sports car in his possession, having been presented with the BMW M Award this afternoon. The prize is given for combined qualifying times over the course of the 18 race MotoGP World Championship season, in addition to that of the 30 minute ‘shootout' in the MotoGP Official Test.

BMW M Head of Sponsoring and Cooperations Axel Zimmermann handed over the keys of the BMW M coupe to the 2007 World Champion. Stoner has been on the front row on twelve occasions this season, including five pole positions, and had been leading Valentino Rossi by half a second heading to Valencia. The early withdrawal of the Italian from proceedings after fracturing his hand in a crash, combined with Stoner's qualifying second on the grid for tomorrow's Gran Premio bwin.com de la Comunitat Valenciana, confirmed the prize for the Ducati rider.
