BMW M follows MotoGP into new decade

BMW M follows MotoGP into new decade

The manufacturer will continue as the Official Car Supplier to MotoGP, with a new range of models on show and another enthralling battle for the BMW M Award in 2010.

For the 12th year BMW M will supply the Official Car of MotoGP with an exquisite line-up of cars fresh from BMW's M Power division in Munich. An M6 Coupe V10 will again be at the forefront of all on-track activities for the all-important Race Control work, enabling speedy track inspections and intervention at all of the 18 rounds on the 2010 calendar. The equally powerful X6 M will be the second Safety Car as it starts its second year reinforcing BMW's support of MotoGP. Race Director Paul Butler will have an M3 Sedan at his disposal while the Safety Officer and Stewards at each meeting will have an M5 Touring and 5 Series GT at hand. The Medical car will be the new X1.

Some lucky fans will get up close to the action with some exclusive VIP trips around the service roads as guests of the VIP Village when they get aboard a fleet of X5 cars. All the MotoGP Official BMWs will be liveried in BMW Motorsport design using the traditional BMW M colours.

At the head of every 125cc, Moto2 and MotoGP grids will be two bikes, with a BMW R1000SS and a BMW HP2 Sport closing the track off before the lights go out and the frenzied action begins in each race.

The BMW M Award will once more provide an added twist to MotoGP qualifying with points being given to each rider after the qualifying session at every round. Come the season finale in Valencia in November, the winner will drive home a brand new M3 Coupe, the two-door version of the superb BMW car Valentino Rossi took home in 2009. Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa will all have eyed up the World Champion as he received the keys, and will be making efforts to get their hands on a set of M3 keys at the end of the 2010 season.
