It doesn’t get any tougher than this.
Germany’s most successful motorsport-series has featured a wide range of cars and exciting races, since 1977. Today 28 classes and over 200 cars regularly compete for class rankings and of course the overall victory. The long-distance race format demands the ultimate concentration from both the drivers and teams. Four to six hours, man and machine are forced to perform at their best.
It’s not surprising that the track is known as the Green Holle, The Green Hell!
Purple Dot have our own NLS race team, racing the brand new BMW M2 CS.
With it’s impressive performance figures, the BMW M2 Cs Racing – a production-based coupé – meets all the basic requirements of a successful entry-level racing car. The M2 CS competes in the NLS Championship and the iconic Nürburgring 24 Hours.
Technical Data BMW M2 CS Racing
Max. width: 1,854mm (without mirrors)

The Purple Dot BMW is run by Walkenhorst Racing, a family-run business with years of experience in the NLS Championship. Walkenhorst are a factory supported team, running test and race programmes on behalf of BMW. They prepare the BMW M2 CS and two of the amazing M6 Cars in the top SP9 category.
The team regularly have factory contracted drivers, driving both types of car. This makes sure the BMW factory engineers are always working closely with us, and of course means anyone in our Purple Dot car gets to have an excellent comparison with the factory drivers.
Purple Dot at the Nürburgring
The structure of the team is excellent as you would expect, the Purple Dot car has a full-time engineer, and two dedicated technicians who maintain the car during the events. The Walkenhorst team has an overall team manager who oversees the car alongside our team mates.
Of course, one major benefit to Walkenhorst and its BMW links is that any driver who impresses in the Purple Dot car can easily attract the attention of Walkenhorst for their other M6 and European GT programmes.
For 2021 we will focus all our attention on the new BMW M2 CS, with a real push to win the Championship.
