By adding an Evo package to their M235i race car, BMW Motorsport is ready to send a more capable track contender into the world, to the delight of their customer teams.
The BMW M240i Racing Evo package features optimized engine software, new end plates for the rear wing, an optional driver’s seat for enhanced comfort and other mods.
“As a production-based, and thus affordable, entry-level model for the motorsport scene, the BMW M235i Racing has been a great success from the word go,” said BMW Motorsport boss Jens Marquardt. “You can see this from the fact that the corresponding class has for years been the strongest Cup class in the VLN, with a field of roughly 20 cars.”
“I am pleased that we are now able to offer our customer teams planning security for a further two years, and to reward them for their loyalty. With the introduction of the BMW M240i Racing Evo package as of the 2019 season, we are taking numerous customer requests into account.”
Aside from the contract extension, BMW Motorsport has also raised the prize money for the newly-named BMW M240i Racing Cup, where next season’s most successful teams will receive 100,000 euros ($117,600) in prize money, 25,000 euros ($29,400) more than before.
As before, the Racing Cup class will continue to receive full support from BMW Motorsport, as the latter will supply teams with spare parts at the track, as well as offer them full customer support and engineering support.
