The Same Guy Has Won A New BMW M Car Every Year For The Past Six Now

Imagine winning a contest for a new BMW. Make it an M car, while you’re at it. Now multiply that feeling by six, and you can just start to imagine Marc Marquez‘s elation.

Marquez, for those of us who don’t follow, is motorcycle racer. And not just any motorcycle racer. He’s the top rider in the series, and has been positively dominating MotoGP for the past six years now – winning the title each year (save for 2015 when he placed third).

In the process, he’s also won the BMW M Award – given to the top qualifier in the motorcycle racing series – for the past six seasons. And that’s netted him a new car each year.

In 2013, he won an M6 coupe. In 2014, an M4 coupe. 2015, an M6 convertible. 2016, an M2 coupe. Last year (2017) he added an M4 CS to his stable. And now he’s taking home a new M3 CS. Not a bad haul, if you ask us, and can only stand to make his title winning streak that much sweeter.

Marquez has ridden for Honda every year since joining the top league in 2013, on the back of his Moto2 title the year before and the 125cc category two seasons prior. We doubt that BMW minds that he rides for another manufacturer, though, since its Motorrad division doesn’t compete in MotoGP – just in the rival Superbike World Championship and events like the Isle of Man TT and the Dakar Rally. But the M division provides the “official car” of the MotoGP series, providing its safety car (and other support vehicles), and hands out the qualifying award and its accompanying prize each year.
