When considering BMW brand from the sport point of view, it is necessary to differentiate two things. First, there was a field of cars and motorcycles. Moreover, the sport department of Munich automaker fundamentally differed from the main concern and from early 60s had its own department. Since the beginning of the 30s BMW has played a significant role in motorcycle sport. Motorsport, on the contrary, got the green light from the central government concern much later. They started to perform BMW tuning quite early, and parts for the tuning very quickly appeared on free sale.
BMW motorsports started with the motor cars, when the company could apply tuning for each model and successfully launched different models in different classes. Powerful and safe engines were a ticket to success in motorsport. In Formula-2 the brand was represented with varied success. Due to BMW tuning spare parts, regular races introduced by Formula BMW on the Norisring motorway, took place. Hans-Joachim Stuck, multiple champion racing driver, also competed there.
In due course BMW bought place in Sauber team (Switzerland) to organize its own Formula-1 team. However, they had no great achievements. So, BMW was forced to give up the idea about the team and started to supply multiple teams with safe engines. Customers, who know these facts, profit from this. BMW parts that clients can also find in our store are constantly improved.
