The BMW M2 CS Racing Winter Cup starts

The BMW M2 CS Racing Winter Cup starts soon – show your talent, even in winter!

With the BMW M2 CS Racing Winter Cup, you are part of the BMW Motorsport Racing community. At four events on the best tracks in Spain and Portugal, you can put your talent to the test. And on one of the best racing machines – the BMW M2 CS Racing with 450 hp.

Optimum complement to the national BMW M2 CS Racing Cups

The Winter Cup sees itself as a logical complement to the cups held in various countries during the summer. Markus Gedlich, Managing Director of Cup promoter Gedlich Racing explains: „We see ourselves as a complement to the Cups of Germany, Benelux and Italy, as well as other countries that will be added in the future. When the wheels come to a standstill in Central Europe, we offer races and test days on the best tracks in the very south of Europe – in Spain and Portugal.“

The Cup will be held as part of the established „GT Winter Series“ racing series, which is already entering its third season and provides professional and sunny racing during the winter in cooperation with the Portuguese and Spanish authorities. The regulations are largely adapted to the country cups. There will be one qualifying and two sprint races per event.

Points for the worldwide Sports Trophy

Year after year, many private teams around the globe enter the competition for the highly endowed BMW Sports Trophy prize. In the BMW M2 CS Racing Winter Cup, teams and drivers collect the same points as in the national cups.

Tyre partner Goodyear supports with best material

Goodyear is an established supplier to the BMW one-make cups. So it is only logical that the experts from Hanau also equip the M2 Winter Cup. Goodyear Motorsport boss Alexander Kühn explains: „We have a top product for the cups. The M2 Winter Cup is ideally suited for beginners, amateurs and aspiring professionals who want to prove their talent. We at Goodyear support this idea with our Cup tyres and on-site support at all races.“

Fabulous calendar

By being integrated into the GT Winter Series schedule, the M2 Winter Cup can already look forward to a particularly desirable calendar in its inaugural season in 2021/2022. All of the tracks are current or former Formula 1 circuits on which numerous international races are currently being held.
