Back at the Qatar MotoGP, BMW introduced for the first time, the X6 M Safety Car, which will be used along with other M vehicles at the MotoGP European races this year. Today, BMW used the Jerez MotoGP motorbike race to show off the entire official MotoGP safety Car fleet.
Prior to the race today, the starting grid at Jerez showcased the assembly of the full BMW Safety Car. Along with the safety cars, twelve X6 M shuttles will be serving special VIP guests.
As you might recall, the BMW X6 M was unveiled last month at the New York Auto Show and it is powered by a V8 M Twin-Turbo engine producing 555 horsepower. Alongside it on each MotoGP grid continues to be the still amazing BMW M6 which outputs 507 horsepower from its V10 engine.
On related news, the Race Director Paul Butler now has a BMW M5 Touring at his disposal for official duties, with the Medical Car a 330i Touring. A brand new M3 Sedan has been given to the Safety Officer Claude Danis.
The Race Stewards have the use of an X5 4.8i, but that is not the end of the mouthwatering BMW presence at the track. The front of each Grand Prix grid will feature a brand new BMW S 1000 RR and a BMW HP 2 Sport as Safety Bikes.
Talk about great PR for BMW!
