BMW just began delivering the M235i Racing to customer racing teams on March 26th but one has already been involved in an accident on the Nürburgring.
Details are limited but the accident apparently occurred at last weekend's VLN race on the Nordschleife. There's no word on what caused the incident but the M235i Racing collided with a Porsche 911.
Motorsport Magazin is reporting the Porsche driver was unhurt while the driver of the M235i Racing was taken to the hospital, by ambulance, where it was discovered they had received arm and shoulder injuries. The video seems to contradict the report, so perhaps the M235i Racing driver was unhurt while the Porsche driver was injured.
As a refresher, the M235i Racing is billed as an entry-level race car for newcomers and professionals alike. It features an aerodynamic body kit, a sport-tuned suspension and an FIA-certified safety cell. The model also has a mechanical limited-slip rear differential and a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that develops 333 HP (245 kW) and 450 Nm (331 lb-ft) of torque.
