Gare e vittorie

gareCon le vetture da corsa su base M3, BMW si aggiudica numerose vittorie e titoli internazionali in un arco di tempo di soli 5 anni e comunque, anche quando è stata ritirata dal mercato, ha continuato a vincere le corse.

La prima apparizione in pista risale al 22 Marzo 1987 sulla pista di Monza: la BMW M3, una macchina eccezionale il cui motore 2,3cc a quattro cilindri sviluppa una potenza massima di 300 CV (di lì a poco diventeranno 355 con le evoluzioni), ottiene più di 1.500 vittorie e più di 50 titoli internazionali.
