Away from the track too, members of the large BMW Motorsport family around the world are also creating headlines.
Three questions for… Thomas Biagi, BMW sports trophy winner.
Thomas, congratulations on winning the 2012 BMW Sports Trophy. What does this award mean to you?
To what extent does the support received from BMW within the framework of the Sports Trophy help you as a privateer?
Biagi: BMW has come up with a very special reward for its ambassadors around the world, in the form of the Sports Trophy. It is hard to explain to an outsider what it means to be a member of the BMW family.
BMW does so much for its privateers – it is a huge help to us. It is a privilege to feel part of one of the top brands in the world.
You received a very special main prize as reward for winning this year’s Sports Trophy – a drive in the BMW M3 DTM…
Biagi: Ever since I started preparing for last season it has been my dream to drive this BMW M3 DTM. I can hardly believe that my dream is now coming true.
