On May 26 in Brussels, an international jury presented the National Energy Globe Award 2007 to BMW Group designer Stephan Augustin for his invention of the so called Watercone, a device for generating clean drinking water. Guests at the awards ceremony included Mikhail Gorbachev, José Manuel Barroso, and Kofi Annan. The Watercone is a solar-powered cone-shaped desalinator that generates fresh drinking water from salt or brackish water. With i

Although the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal is also labelled a street circuit, one could hardly imagine a greater contrast to the Monaco course. When Formula One gathers for the Canadian Grand Prix on 8th June, there will be no sign of the extra wings that adorned the cars in the Principality. The picturesquely sited island circuit in the mighty St Lawrence River is no permanent race track either, but it is respectably fast. To boost speed along the straights, the aerodynamic set-up is geared towards relativ

“I don’t have to cope with anything.” Munich/Hinwil, 29th May 2008. Six races into the 2008 season BMW Sauber F1 Team driver Robert Kubica lies fourth in the drivers’ world championship with 32 points to his tally.

It was the second race of the German Cross Country Championship 2008 in the Thuringian city of Walldorf, and it was the second victory for Simo Kirssi and the BMW Motorrad team - and it even was a double victory! There was no way past the two BMW factory riders in that Walldorf forest special. The Fin Simo Kirssi and h

This weekend, the BMW national team drivers contest the first street races of the FIA World Touring Car championship season. The “Circuit de Pau Ville“ in France will be the venue of this year’s second European WTCC event. The first two rounds on European soil were held last week at Valencia (ES). Just a fortnight after the Pau races, the season will continue in Brno (CZ). In the second of three events staged within four weeks, BMW Team

Monte Carlo (MC). Both BMW Sauber F1 Team drivers, Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld, had a troublefree second practice session in preparation for the world’s most famous Grand Prix, and they stayed well away from Monte Carlo’s crash barriers. In the first session Heidfeld was forced to park his F1.08 next to the Café de Paris due to an engine failure. For the second session he had a fresh engine, which the regulations allow up to Saturday. Robert Kubica: BMW Sauber F1.08-03 / BMW P86/8 1st Practice: 6th,

No other Formula One race offers quite the same blend of sport and spectacle as the Monaco Grand Prix. To the outside world, this 78-lap race through the streets of Monaco is the highlight of the Formula One calendar, and it commands a huge worldwide audience. Spectators thrill to the sight of drivers rocketing through the city streets and past the harbour at speeds of over 280 km/h. The more well-heeled onlookers even bring their own floating ringside seats, while others pack the trackside apartments that have bee

In 1999 BMW broke the four-wheel-drive mould when it launched the X5 Sports Activity Vehicle. With a bias towards excellent on-road performance combined with a dynamic design and a premium interior, the BMW X5 was an instant success. And it’s a winning formula that has, unlike most other models, led to increasing sales during its lifecycle with the biggest annual UK sales coming in its penultimate year. The timing of the BMW X5 was perfect and it reflected buyers’ lifestyles and their des
