The excitement of the Mandalika 2022 MotoGP cannot be forgotten. Especially with the presence of the official car of MotoGP, namely the BMW M3 as a safety car at the Mandalika Pertamina Grand Prix Indonesia.

This is the second collaboration between BMW Indonesia and the Mandalika Grand Prix Association (MGPA), which is the promoter of MotoGP Indonesia. The BMW M3 Competition has stolen the attention. This car was highlighted by a lot of cameras when MotoGP live broadcast on television.

Safety car
The BMW M3 safety car was the busiest vehicle to check the condition of the circuit which was flooded with rainwater to ensure safety for MotoGP racers before the main race resumed. With a 2.0L gasoline engine and an electric motor, the vehicle may produce up to 252 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque.

The sports car has sufficient ammunition to cross the Mandalika track as far as 4.31 km with 17 bends. This happens because of the support of a 6-cylinder with dual-turbo engine that is capable of producing 503 hp.

In order to fulfill its role as a safety car, BMW Indonesia worked with Pertamina to use Pertamax Turbo fuel, which has the highest RON of 98. This fuel was chosen because it can match the demands of high-tech sports automobiles.

Specification
The BMW M3 Competition Safety Car at the Mandalika MotoGP came with a more masculine color, namely using a full matte black color, with gold-colored graphic accents that can give an elegant impression. The BMW M3 has specifications of 4,633 mm in length, 2,031 mm in width including mirrors, and 1,429 mm in height as a 2022 MotoGP safety car at the Mandalika Circuit. With four doors, the vehicle can accommodate five passengers.

This car is the ideal option for delivering satisfaction on both sides, in terms of driving enjoyment and efficiency. BMW Indonesia cooperated with Pertamina on this occasion, to keep the MGPA Safety Car for MotoGP in the best performance by using Pertamax Turbo gasoline. This is Pertamina's product with the highest RON of 98 that meets the support of sports vehicles with high technology such as BMW.

BMW Indonesia's dedication to support the development of racing in Indonesia is demonstrated through this relationship. BMW has been the Official Partner of MotoGP for more than 20 years since 1999 and has been involved and providing numerous BMW M vehicle models as Safety Cars for MotoGP races all over the world.
