The BMW Motorrad BoxerCup - a racing series with tradition.
Already the first international version of the BMW Motorrad BoxerCup from 2001 to 2004 was a public magnet. Embedded in the program of world championships of the MotoGP as well as international endurance and superbike championships, the participants competed on the same BMW R 1100 S vehicles. Even at that time, the races were very popular all over Europe, not least because of the prominent riders and brand ambassadors like Randy Mamola.
