The BMW racing story is a fascinating tale of persistence and reward. Though initially unsuccessful in competition, the flat-twin-powered BMW motorcycle was steadily developed until it became a machine to be reckoned with. In 1939 the ultimate was achieved when Georg Meir won the Senior TT.

After the War BMW maintained a high profile on the Grand Prix scene, winning no fewer than nineteen world titles from the mid-1950s to the mid-1970s in sidecar racing. But BMW: The Racing Story covers much more, including the American scene, the K-series four-cylinder, the four valve twins of the early 1990s and, finally, the great successes gained by the F650-based single in the European and British Supermono series.
