BMW recently announced it will be racing not one, not two, but three BMWUSA Classic race cars at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. The classics include the No. 25 BMW 3.0 CSL, the BMW M1 IMSA Group 4 endurance racer and the BMW M5 IMSA Bridgestone Supercar Championship 1994-95 winner.
In the mid-70s, BMW created racing cars that would stack up and compete alongside the other competitors like Ferrari, Lotus and Porsche. They even have a now-classic championship ad and poster that reads, “The 1994 IMSA Supercar Champion Has Something Exotic Ferrari, Lotus and Porsche Competitors Don’t. Four Doors.” A little friendly or not so friendly jab to the competition, as they traditionally sport two doors.
Nothing beats a classic, as far as history and legacy goes, but will these historic speedsters be able to make it to the finish line on top once again? The race takes place at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, August 13-16 in Salinas, CA. Which BMWUSA Classic do you have set to win it all?
