BMW M Motorsport’s new customer car based on the BMW M2 Competition has completed its first test in race conditions at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.

The car completed 28 laps on the German racetrack and provided BMW M Motorsport engineers with valuable insights for further developments in the coming months.

BMW Motorsport drivers Beitske Visser and Jörg Weidinger took it in turns at the wheel of the new BMW entry-level model, due to be delivered to customers from the second quarter of 2020.

“From my perspective, the test went very well,” said Weidinger. “During this kind of test drive in race conditions, you gain experience that you can’t get in private tests. Driving in traffic, starting, overtaking, yellow flags – you can only experience all that in a real race. The new car made a very good impression in terms of both performance and durability.”
