The BMW XM Label Red will have a leading role on the track in the upcoming season: as the new MotoGP™ safety car. For the first time, a high-performance automobile with an electrified drive, the performance-enhanced M HYBRID system, will lead the field in the premier class of motorcycle racing. "It is a logical step that the most powerful BMW M car we have ever brought to market will be the new spearhead of our safety car fleet in MotoGP," said BMW M CEO Franciscus van Meel. Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of MotoGP™ rights holder Dorna Sports, is also looking forward to the new addition: "With the BMW XM Label Red Safety Car, the fleet of high-performance cars in use in MotoGP will be strengthened by another real highlight. We are already looking forward to seeing it on the track in Qatar."
