It’s becoming a tradition now for BMW to host an yearly event with their Sauber F1 Team fans. Just last November, BMW in collaboration with Formula One put together a fan day event at the BMW branch in Munich-Fröttmaning. That weekend, over 1,000 BMW Sauber fans had a chance to see their idols live: Nick Heidfeld, Robert Kubica.
Moving forward to 2009 and this past Monday, another fan event took place at the Nurburgring track in Germany. For the first team the team was founded, the event took place at a race circuit, a far more exciting adventure and once again, BMW’s pilots along with BMW Motorsport Director Mario Theissen were present at the ‘Ring.
The BMW Sauber F1 Team Race Club also hosted a raffle where the winners had the opportunity to take an M3 and even a Formula 1 BMW race car on the track. To make things even more exciting, BMW Sauber’s drivers, Kubica and Heidfeld, swapped places with the BMW Superbike Two-times World Champion Time Corser.
Others watched from the co-driver seats as professional race drivers went about their tasks in a BMW 320si WTCC or BMW M5. Germancarzone’s member, BMW M Power, attended the event and beside its amazing experience behind the M3, he took the time to take some photos and share them with the BMW world.
Of course, after seeing them, we kinda wish we were there also, but hey…we’ll make sure we’ll be there next year or maybe even at a future F1 race.
