BWM 1 Series M to be Moto GP Safety Car
The engine remains the same as the standard 1 Series M, set to be released later this year for £38,000, but the safety car version gets a roll cage, a new carbon fibre body, no rear seats, six point racing harnesses, and a “special lightweight titanium race exhaust system that not only saves weight but also delivers a captivating sound for the benefit of the spectators”.
The safety car will also be joined on track by two safety bikes, one a BMW S 1000 RR and the other a BMW HP2 Sport.
And if that wasn’t enough BMW for you, there will be two backup safety cars, an X6 M and an M3, an X5 M for the safety officer, an ActiveHybrid X6 for the stewards, and a 535i Touring for the medical team.
