BMW are celebrating 50 years of their Motorsport ‘M’ division this year and they have quite an itinerary planned for the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed. They will have a feature outside the Goodwood House which will display significant models from the sub-brand’s history.
The Bavarian giant will also be marketing the historic event with a world premiere of the new BMW M3 Touring and a UK premiere of the M4 CSL. It’s not just the petrol power too, the iX1 and i7 will also be on display with the iX M60, i4 and iX3 all available for test drives as well. That’s very cool but all eyes will be on the M3 Touring undoubtedly.
This is the first time the M3 range will include a wagon option and to prove the car’s sporting pedigree, the new Touring will take on the hillclimb in the ‘First Glance’ category! Throughout the event, famous BMW M cars will be driven by the likes of Pedro Piquet (Nelson Piquet’s son), Markus Flasch (ex CEO OF BMW M) and HRH Leopold, the Prince of Bavaria! Come the end of June, all eyes will be on the BMW stand at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
