Following Mike Krack’s departure to the Aston Martin F1 team, Andreas Roos, formerly project manager for factory racing at Audi, will take over as head of BMW’s motorsport operation.
“We would like to thank Mike Krack for his passion and dedication across the motorsport portfolio of BMW and BMW M,” said Franciscus van Meel, CEO of BMW M. “He has demonstrated his wholehearted commitment to motorsport in various roles within our company. As head of BMW M Motorsport, he took some important decisions over the past year aimed at securing a successful future for our motorsport projects. He has now been given the chance to fulfill a career dream and we do not want to stand in his way. We would like to wish Mike every success in his future endeavors.
“At the same time, we are delighted to welcome Andreas Roos as our new head of BMW M Motorsport,” continued van Meel. “He has also held senior management positions in international motorsport for many years, and his vast experience makes him the ideal appointment at the helm of our racing involvement. With Andreas on board, we are in the best possible shape to enjoy an exciting future pursuing ambitious goals with our new BMW M4 GT3 and LMDh project.
