A year of outstanding events supported by BMW
The BMW Season gets the green light this weekend with the BMW Power Festival, the first in a year-long line up of sporting and cultural events supported by BMW UK.
With sporting events as diverse as the British Grand Prix and Formula BMW races, the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Revival meetings, the BMW Golf Championship at Wentworth and the Louis Vuitton Sailing Regatta, the BMW Season promises to get the adrenaline running. For those appreciating the all-together finer points of life, BMW FineArt Driving Experiences offer discerning customers a tailor-made opportunity to drive a BMW 6 Series Convertible or Z4 roadster through some of Europe’s most enchanting and cultured regions.
The BMW Season kicks off this weekend at The BMW Performance Centre at Rockingham, which hosts an unprecedented line-up of recent BMW-powered racing cars such as the race-winning Williams-BMW FW26, the Le Mans-winning BMW V12-LMR and the BMW 320i World Touring Car. All cars will be driven by reigning European Touring Car Champion and recent Nürburgring 24-Hour race winner, Andy Priaulx. It will also host rounds five and six of the Formula BMW UK Championship, a race series offering young, aspiring drivers the opportunity of competing around 10 of the UK’s most demanding race circuits, culminating with a world final in Bahrain in December.
Andy Priaulx said: "The BMW Power Festival is a fantastic way of showcasing BMW’s recent racing success, of which I am proud to be involved. Bringing these pinnacle cars together alongside the Formula BMW UK Championship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for BMW enthusiasts and spectators. I am sure that the BMW Power Festival will make an excellent opening to the BMW Season."Published 19 May 2005
