BMW M GmbH has celebrated their 40th anniversary by holding a special event at the AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix, Germany's largest classic car race, at the Nürburgring.
A crowd of approximately 60,000 people gathered to watch the M Jubiläumsrennen (anniversary races) which had a "full gamut" of 1972 and newer BMW racing cars.
BMW Classic brought five models: two M1 Group 4 racers, a 320 Group 5 car, an M3 Group A (1987) and a 320i STW (1995). They were piloted by BMW touring car drivers Dieter Quester, Marc Surer, Marc Hessel and Prince Leopold of Bavaria as well as design guru Adrian van Hooydonk.
Besides the race, visitors were treated to demonstration drives of various M models.
