On 21st March, BMW Team RLL will contest the 63rd staging of the legendary 12-hour race of Sebring. BMW Motorsport and BMW of North America celebrate a special anniversary on their return to Sebring this season: 40 years ago, BMW Motorsport got its first Sebring victory, with the BMW 3.0 CSL.
In honour of that success, the two BMW Z4 GTLMs of BMW Team RLL will sport special designs as they compete on the Sebring International Raceway. Car number 25 will carry the colours of the winning BMW 3.0 CSL of 1975. At an unveiling ceremony, which was part of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in northern Florida, BMW of North America presented the anniversary design of the vehicles to the public for the first time.
1975 was a significant year in the history of BMW in North America: BMW of North America was founded, and just a few days later came the historic first victory with the BMW 3.0 CSL in Sebring.
