Ralf Schumacher to demo BMW Williams F1 car at Portimao

Two sporting worlds come together as MotoGP™ prepares for its biggest season yet, with the season opener set to feature a very special guest

Tags MotoGP, 2023

At the 2023 MotoGP™ season opener, a new era is set to begin and the weekend is already guaranteed to go down in MotoGP™ history. There’s an action-packed programme as the sport takes back to the track for the biggest season yet, and that will include a very special VIP appearance during the event – not once, but twice!

By special invitation, multiple F1 race winner Ralf Schumacher will do demo laps in his 2003 BMW Williams Formula 1 car, with one stint on Saturday at 11:45 and another on Sunday between the Moto2™ race and the MotoGP™ race. The car is the chassis driven by Schumacher to victory at the Nurburgring and Magny-Cours in 2003, one of the most successful seasons of his decade long career in the top flight of four-wheeled motorsport.

The Williams FW25 is part of the VES Formula 1 collection and is the original chassis with a rebuilt original 2003 BMW V10 P83 engine. Reaching up to 19,300 RPM and producing over 900 horsepower, the car will only add to the spectacle as MotoGP™ prepares to showcase our own 22 heroes set to do battle in 2023.

If you feel the need for speed, make sure to tune in for the Grande Premio TISSOT de Portugal from the 24th to the 26th of March, with more MotoGP™ than ever – and some very special guests!
