With the 12 Hours of Sebring USC (United SportsCar Championship) race set to take place tomorrow, BMW has posted a video providing a lap through time, which flips through photos of its Motorsport history.
The newest model to join BMW Motorsports will be the BMW M4 DTM car which did not make it into this video, but will begin racing in this year’s DTM race series. The M4 DTM will make its first public appearances at the official ITR tests in Budapest (HU, 31st March – 3rd April) and then at the final test in Hockenheim (DE, 14th – 17th April). The 2014 DTM season starts on May 4, 2014 at Hockenheim.

In a recent BMW M235i commercial [see all], the M235i is seen performing a spin maneuver while backing away from and then leading a BMW 2002 (symbolizing a passing of the proverbial torch).

From BMW Magazine comes a set of white BMW M4 Coupe photos, featuring BMW DTM driver Bruno Spengler.
