IndyCar Drivers

Graham Rahal 2014

Graham Rahal

Graham Rahal grew up attending race events around the world with his father, 1986 Indi­anapolis 500 winner and three-time Indy car cham­pion Bobby Rahal, and cut his teeth in karting and moved up through feeder series to Indy car racing. In 2008, a victory at St. Peters­burg — in his IndyCar Series debut — made him the youngest winner in a major auto race at 19, 93 days old. He also co-drove the winning car in the 2011 Rolex 24 at Daytona sports car race.

Bill Auberlen

The combi­na­tion of BMW and Bill Auberlen is a recipe for success. Regard­less of which model the Amer­ican takes out onto the track: the driver and car work in perfect harmony. The expe­ri­enced Auberlen is a true all-rounder. As well as being bril­liant in the latest BMW models, such as the BMW M3 GT or the BMW Z4 GT3, he can also look back on expe­ri­ence with historic cars like the BMW V12 LMR, McLaren BMW and the BMW M3 GTR.

Dirk Müller

Dirk Müller is a real GT specialist, and he’s got a run of success in the disci­pline to match. He first sat behind the wheel of a sports car on a race­track in 1997 and received noto­riety in the Porsche Carrera Cup – a series he won a year later. He caused quite a sensa­tion by finishing high up in the classic endurance races in Daytona (1998 and 1999) and Le Mans (1999). He didn’t have to wait long for his first big title: Müller won the GT class of the Amer­ican Le Mans Series in 2000 and became a BMW works driver the following year.

Joey Hand

BMW and Joey Hand have enjoyed a prof­itable part­ner­ship for several years and will continue to work together in 2011. The Amer­ican lines up along­side his German team­mate Dirk Müller for BMW Team RLL in the Amer­ican Le Mans Series. Their goal is clear: to launch an attack on the Drivers’ title.

Maxime Martin

The man from Belgium has that certain some­thing. He has an ability that not many racing drivers in the world possess. He is regarded as a “rain god.” Maxime has risen to being a BMW Works Driver in the 2013 season.
