BMW Festival added Esport Lockdown Challenge
Another event has been added to MotorSport New Zealand Esport Lockdown Challenge, this time celebrating the popular BMW Race Driver Series.
Competitors will race the BMW M4 GT4 around the famed Oulton Park International circuit in a festival type format where 62 competitors will be narrowed down over four heats and a consolation race will form the grid for the final race. The BMW Festival will take place on Tuesday night, with official practice commencing at 6:30pm.
The Lockdown Challenge has so far comprised three events, all had bumper prize packs including test days in both a Formula Ford and Toyota 86 as well as a real 2KCUP Shield race car.
The BMW Festival will be no different with the winner receiving a free entry into the BMW Race Driver Series Scholarship.* Entry into the annual scholarship will give the recipient a chance to recieve a fully funded season in the E30 class of the BMW Race Driver Series.
As one of New Zealand’s most popular racing classes, the club-level BMW Race Driver Series’ E30 category is a great way to go racing at an affordable level. Strong grid sizes and a large network of competitors and support make the perfect step into motorsport.
Once again the event will be broadcast live on MotorSport New Zealand’s Facebook, Youtube and Twitch accounts with renowned commentator Craig ‘Sooty’ Lord calling the action.
