BMW Group España’s official team has moved into the lead after round 3 of the BMW M2 CS Racing Winter Series held in Jerez last weekend. Martí and De los Milagros stepped onto the top spot of the podium twice with their BMW España Motorsport’s BMW M2 CS Racing that, once again, performed excellently throughout the weekend

 

BMW España Motorsport justified their status as hot favourites for the BMW M2 CS Racing Winter Series Cup, which hosted its third round of the 2021/22 season at Circuito de Jerez.



The BMW España Motorsport-run BMW M2 CS Racing delivered another strong performance and, driven accordingly by José Manuel De los Milagros and Nerea Martí, the Spanish team brought two wins and second-place finish home. As a result, both drivers sit first in the drivers’ standings with just one round left.



With Saturday devoted to private testing, BMW España Motorsport and their drivers focused on a good set up for the BMW M2 CS Racing in Jerez, whose technical and fast layout is always tough, both in qualifying and race conditions.


Martí, who hadn’t raced in Jerez since three years ago during her F4 Spain season, and De los Milagros perfectly knew how difficult to beat German drivers Michael Sander and Marcel Marchewicz would be. So, every small detail could tip the scales in favour of one or another.



On Sunday morning, Martí took qualifying duties in Q1 and secured a valuable 2nd place in the BMW M2 CS Racing Winter Series Cup clocking a lap time of 1m55.346s, just a few tenths slower than Marchewicz’s pole time and it showed how quickly the Spaniard is improving.



In Q2, De los Milagros stormed to pole position with a lap time of 1m54.376s, the fastest time set by any BMW M2 CS Racing this weekend, and managed to beat Sander.



Martí kept in the Marchewicz’s slipstream in race 1 and their pace was very much the same finally crossing the finish line in second place. De los Milagros had a dominant role in race 2 and, after 25 minutes, he took the chequered flag more than fifty seconds ahead of Sander.


In the final race, with a different endurance format, De los Milagros took the lead ahead of Sander and, after just 7 laps, the Spaniard had built a 10-second lead and was running in the overall top-ten.




The German team made its mandatory pit stop early, on lap 9, with BMW España Motorsport choosing to stop later. It played a key role as a safety car gave a huge lead to Martí who brought the BMW home winning the class and finishing an impressive 6th place overall.

 

“We are extremely happy. We knew that Jerez was home turf for us but it was something to prove it on track. We had a perfect set-up after Saturday testing but we need to underline how fantastic the BMW M2 CS Racing was once again. Such a perfect weapon. We ran in fifth place overall fighting with much more powerful cars”, said the Spanish duo.


They explained that “pit strategy was also the right call. On the whole, a fantastic weekend for us with two more wins and a second place finish. We are now leading the BMW M2 CS Racing Winter Series Cup and the championship. Title fight will go down to the wire in Barcelona next month. We will keep pushing to clinch the title there!”
