BMW M1 Procar Series

Awesome video footage of the old BMW M1 Procar Series that used to be a support race during the F1 weekend. In addition to the M1 drivers, the top four F1 drivers from free practice would also race in the series. Too bad that would never happen now. 😦

In this particular clip, they are racing at Monaco.

The cars themselves are powered by a 3.4L mid-engined inline-6 motor making 277hp. They weighed just over 3100lbs. Details on the car can be found here.

The racing series will be re-incarnated for this year’s German Grand Prix at Hockenheim, but don’t expect any of the current F1 drivers to participate.
