Formula BMW Talent Cup –
Welcome Event in Munich: 2013 training season officially opened
Munich, April 25, 2013. The 2013 Formula BMW Talent Cup season is officially underway. The talented young drivers, who BMW is preparing comprehensively for a successful career in professional motorsport, can now look forward to their first on-track event: BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt welcomed this year’s drivers to the Welcome Event at BMW Motorsport in Munich (DE). In doing so, he gave the official starting signal for the 2013 season. Between now and autumn of this year, the participants will take to the track at renowned European racetracks, where they will face a multitude of driving challenges at the wheel of the BMW FB02 single-seater racing car. The talented youngsters will also receive comprehensive theoretical training.
As well as the on-track events, which include a large number of test races, the training schedule also includes extensive sessions in the race simulator, as well as modules on fitness, performance and media skills. The class of 2013 will meet up at the end of the week for the first on-track event of the season in Calafat, Spain. The complete field will take to the track for the first time in the BMW FB02 single-seater racing car, which has proven itself to be a reliable and safe training car for the Formula BMW Cup and this year features a new matt-black design. The “Grand Final”, which consists of two races and shares the bill with the DTM in September, forms the highlight of the 2013 Formula BMW Talent Cup. BMW will then finance the winner of the final for a complete season in a higher-level racing series.
