She had it in the past two years yes, but I ignore if she continues having this support.

I've heard Ravaglia presented new BMW at last. But the first opportunity to see that car in battle is only in the very end of summer,isn't it?
Besides,the colour scheme for the car was designed at BMW Motorsport,if I understand to it right. Maybe,not only the colour scheme?

08/07/2008 - The BMW M3 sedan developed by ROAL Motorsport for the Superstars Championship made today its first laps on track at Adria. Luca Rangoni, in 26 laps, completed shakedown of the car that will take to its debut on the 31st of August on the track of Varano de´Melegari. Some laps scored by Kristian Ghedina too, he will drive the car in the last two races of the season.
The testing programme, particularly focused on the verification of all mechanical and electric components, has been completed without any particular problem. The type of work, involving frequent stops in the pits for the necessary modifications, made the lap times almost meaningless.
The new BMW M3 will be involved during the next two months in an intense development programme on track in preparation of the first racing weekend.

Roberto Ravaglia (Team principal):
"I am extremely satisfied by the way the BMW M3 Superstars debuted on track. This is the first racing car built by ROAL Motorsport and after today I can satisfactorily say that the project is born in the right way, thanks to the commitment and the optimum work of all my guys".

Roberto Trevisan (Technical director):
"I think that the fact that the car did not have critical problems is very positive. The only small issue we had involved the braking system but we will certainly solve it during the next tests ".

Great looking car. I am surprised BMW Motorsport came with this livery because it's different as their WTCC and F1 design. The car is inhouse developed by ROAL.

I REALLY like this new M3 V8, a handy little maschine instead of the M5 V10

New M5 will have V8 twin turbo, and new RS4 will have V6 twin turbo.
Does it means, that we'll see E-classe sedans instead of nowdays partly D-classe?
