Marc Marquez has won the BMW M Award for the third season running as MotoGP’s best qualifier and this year, he has walked away with the keys to a BMW M6 Convertible. It adds to the BMW M4 he won last year and the M6 Coupe he walked away with in 2013.
This particular 2016 BMW M6 Convertible has been painted in Frozen Blue Metallic and includes 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels alongside piano black trim throughout the interior courtesy of BMW Individual as well as a selection of unspecified BMW M Performante Parts.
Throughout the 2015 MotoGP season, the young Spaniard picked up more qualifying points than any other rider; 365 in total thanks largely to his eight pole positions during the season. The presentation ceremony for the M6 Convertible was held on Saturday at the final round of the MotoGP season in Valencia.
Discussing the car, Marquez said “I am really happy to have won the BMW M Award for third time in a row. For us riders, this award is always something special. The BMW M6 is a great car and I like the acceleration and the handling. The fact that it is the BMW M6 Convertible makes this prize even more special. It is the first time that I won a convertible car and for me living in Spain, this is just perfect. I can’t wait to get in the car and drive it!”
According to president of the BMW M Division Frank van Meel, “Marc Marquez already wrote history two years ago when he became the first rookie to win the BMW M Award. Now he is the first rider to be entered in the list of winners three times in a row. Many congratulations on this impressive achievement.”
