About

Closing racing, passion, camaraderie and adrenaline; this is what makes the BMW Race Driver Series so successful. Started in 2006 by a group of enthusiastic members of the BMW Car Club of NZ, the idea was to organise and promote a series that was relatively low in cost and would result in fast, action packed door-to-door racing.
With a mandate to have vehicles running with close performance similarities, that were fund to drive and remained as close to standard configuration as possible, the “Open Class” was born.

Fast forward 12 years and it’s no longer one class with a handful of cars. The BMW Race Driver Series is now the largest single make series in New Zealand, often enticing over 100 competitors to enter their machines. 

From road legal E30s to full-blown track dedicated M3 machines, the series now caters to multiple classes.
