Only the best car companies have their own race series. Maserati, Porsche, Ferrari, and Mclaren have their own for their customers. Trouble is though, most of these sorts of race series are either too exclusive or too expensive. Usually both.
Enter the BMW Race Drivers Series. BMW are proud of their success at motor racing and it shows with their current range of cars. The BMW RDS is a great opportunity to experience this history as well as participating in a race series for a lot less than it’d usually cost.
If, like me, you’ve always wanted to get behind the wheel of a proper race car then this new and exciting program launched by BMW RDS could just be for you.
BMW RDS have set up its very own E30 Scholarship Program where one very lucky budding racing driver will be given the chance to race a fully race-ready BMW E30 for the whole 2014/2015 season.
The E30 provided by BMW RDS has a 2.0-litre straight 6 engine. Racing upgrades include a set of Toyo R888 race tyres, race brakes, Castrol oils, BMW car club membership, sponsor and race signage, and even your very own mechanical engineer.
Finalists will get a chance to show their skills in front of V8 Supercars legend Greg Murphy and Touring car champ Mike Eady at the hallowed Hampton Downs track on August 30.
This would be a great opportunity for anyone who’d want a crack at motorsport and would like to pursue a future in racing. These sorts of opportunities don’t come by very often and it’d be a great way of getting known on the racing circuit. Schnell schnell!
