Munich. After the successful premiere of the BMW M2 Cup in 2021, the one-make cup has now announced its race calendar for the coming season. It once again features twelve races over six weekends as part of the support programme for the DTM. The announcement also marks the start of the registration period for the BMW M2 Cup.

"For us, the debut season of the BMW M2 Cup was a big success", said Thomas Felbermair, Vice President Sales and Marketing BMW M GmbH. "The feedback of the drivers was entirely positive. The BMW M2 CS Racing has racing DNA that is typical for BMW M. I'm really looking forward to the 2022 season and hope for another thrilling title battle."

"We are pleased to be able to announce the dates for the 2022 season," said the head of the BMW M2 Cup, Jörg Michaelis. "With BMW M and the DTM, we have put together an exciting and varied calendar. It is the perfect fit, as there is a lot of international interest in the Cup. At this current time, there is always a certain degree of uncertainty when announcing dates, but we are already looking forward to the start of the season."

The Lausitzring (GER) hosts the opening round of next season's BMW M2 Cup on 21st/22nd May 2022. This is followed by a further three appearances in Germany - at the Norisring, Nürburgring and Hockenheimring.
