<H2>La informacion esta en la pagina BMW Motorsport y me la ha pasado un socio del Club M. Yo creo que el M3 puede ser el coche mas laureado de toda la historia, con esas mas de 1500 carreras ganadas entre el 86 y 92. Me imagino que esas 1500 carreras seran conocidas no carreras en "chiquitistan" como decia algun forero en otro post; esas carreras supongo yo que BMW Motorsport no las habra contabilizado. Seguramente puedo parecer poco objetivo, pero son los datos y los numeros. Los que se acordaban del renault 5 turbo, lancia delta y demas coches deportivos me parece que no estan en disposicion de alcanzar esa cifra aunque me gustaria comparar los palmares Saludos BMW M3. The BMW M3 is considered the “typical winner” among the BMW touring cars. In its racing version the 2.3-litre 4-valve 4-cylinder high-performance engine delivers up to 300 bhp. The debut year of the slim-line, robust BMW M3 turns into a march of triumph straight away. The BMW factory cars with their liveries sporting the well-known racing colours win the three most important titles. Roberto Ravaglia becomes the first World Touring Car Champion, Winfried Vogt European and Eric van de Poele German Champion. More than 1500 single victories, 60 national championships in street and hillclimb races as well as in rally sport, plus seven European hillclimb championships, five Mitropa Rally Cup wins and eight victories in the 24-hour races at the Nürburgring and at Spa make the BMW M3 the world’s most successful touring car. </H2>Success story M3. The debut year of the BMW M3 in touring car racing turns out to be a truly triumphal parade, with the works car winning the three most significant titles: Roberto Ravaglia secures the maiden Word Touring Car Championship, with Winfried Vogt and Eric van de Poele clinching the European and German titles respectively. In 1988, Ravaglia prevails in the European Championship, in 1989 he wins the title in the German Championship – and in 1990, he adds the title in his native Italy to his tally, thus becoming the most successful BMW M3 driver of all time. Having secured over 60 national championship titles worldwide, in street racing, hill climbing and rallying, seven European Hill-Climb Championships, five Rally Cups and numerous wins in the 24-hour races at the Nürburgring and Spa-Francorchamps, the BMW M3 clearly is the world’s most successful touring car. series of triumphs. Following remarkable successes in the 1960s, BMW continues its touring car success story in the following decade, the 1970s. From 1973 to 1979, the BMW 3.0 CSL secures another six European Touring Car Championship titles for the manufacturer, and Harald Ertl clinches the 1978 German Motor Racing Championship, with a BMW 320 entered by the Schnitzer Team. In the mid 1980s, the commanding BMW 635 CSi Coupe is the car to beat in the European Touring Car Championship. Following race wins in 1985, Roberto Ravaglia secures the 1986 European Championship title. In 1987, BMW enters the slim but meaty successor to the 6 Series coupe – the BMW M3: a true driving machine with a 355bhp 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine. It turns out to be almost invincible, whether contesting the Asian Pacific Championship, the European Hill Climb Championship or rallies. Furthermore, Roberto Ravaglia clinches the World Touring Car Championship with the M3. For a new, closer to production, touring car series – called Class 2 or 2-litre class, and subsequently, Super Touring Cars – BMW designs a new superior touring car: the BMW 320i. From 1993 to 1998, this car secures 29 international championships for BMW, three of them in Germany. Thus far, BMW has amassed a total of 24 European Championship titles, with Andy Priaulx being the driver to secure the last of these – at the wheel of a BMW 320i, in 2004. In 2005, the Briton also prevails in the second World Touring Car Championship.
