BMW Entered Three Great Cars Into Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion

After the announcement that BMW would race an Alpina 2002ti at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the company has added two more of its classic cars – including a very special M1.

BMW says in addition to the Alpina 2002ti, it has entered the No. 2 BMW M1 IMSA Group 4 car seen at the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1981. The M1 is already an oddity among classic BMWs, and this particular car was spawned from the ProCar M1s that the company made as it searched for a form of motorsport to enter the car in.

David Hobbs, Mark Surer, and Dieter Quester were all associated with that car. Pro driver Randy Probst from Motor Trend will be driving it in Monterey on August 16.

The other car is No. 25 3.0CSL Group 4 that won the 1975 12 Hours of Sebring, one of five cars BMW North America commissioned back then for racing. It’ll be driven at Laguna Seca by the head of BMW North America, Ludwig Willisch.

August 16 and 17 will be a pretty good weekend for classic BMW fans in Monterey.
