The BMW 3.0 CSL debuted in the European Touring Car Championship in 1973 sporting the three characteristic BMW Motorsport colours: blue, purple and red on a snow-white background. The updated Motorsport colors today are blue, dark blue and red.

From the Isle of Man to Dakar – BMW Motorrad and Motorsport

Racing success was not the exclusive domain of BMW four-wheelers, however. Innovation stems from motorsport and this was especially true in the early decades. Legendary names from those early years include Ernst Jakob Henne who set no less than 76 world land speed records between 1929 and 1937 on supercharged BMW motorcycles and Georg “Schorsch” Meier who won the 1939 Senior Tourist Trophy on the island. de Man on his supercharged 500cc. BMW.

In 1976, exactly 37 years later, Helmut Dähn and Hans Otto Butenuth celebrated fifth place in the Isle of Man Production TT class. They had actually set the fastest time on their BMW R 90 S but due to handicap rules they were seeded in fifth place behind two 250cc and two 500cc bikes. Nevertheless, given the fastest time, this fifth place was celebrated as a victory.

74 years after “Schorsch” Meier’s success in the Senior TT, Michael Dunlop rode his BMW S 1000 RR to victory in the 2014 Isle of Man TT Superbike race. In the following years, the RR would leave its unmistakable mark on the TT with more victories.

BMW M colors would also be represented in off-road conditions such as the Paris-Dakar rallies of the early 1980s which were dominated by BMW GS factory drivers Hubert Auriol and Gaston Rahier.
