Not too long ago we were telling you that the guys from Stereoscreen were working on probably the most extensive documentary about the motorsport history of the BMW brand. Called Adrenalin - The BMW Touring Car Story, the documentary is finally done and can be purchased online on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Its creators took a long look at the 50 years BMW’s work in various motorsport venues, and came up with 123 minutes of film that include interviews with over 30 people directly involved in the events that took place.

Amongst them you’ll find names such as Johnny Cecotto (VE), Roberto Ravaglia (IT), Steve Soper (GB), Hans-Joachim Stuck (DE), Marc Surer (CH), Joachim Winkelhock (DE) and Alex Zanardi (IT).

At the same time, three-time World Touring Car Champion, Andy Priaulx (GB), current BMW Motorsport DTM drivers – Bruno Spengler (CA), Augusto Farfus (BR) and DTM champion Marco Wittmann (DE) – Charly Lamm (DE), team principal of BMW Team Schnitzer, and BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt reveal their personal experiences with BMW in touring car racing.

This is the ultimate documentation on the history of BMW in touring car racing,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “The film had me captivated right from the first minute. The clips show emphatically what a magnificent history BMW has enjoyed on the touring car scene. I find the footage from the 1960s and 1970s particularly fascinating, when the drivers courageously hurled their cars round the racetracks, sometimes drifting wildly. Many of these drivers are heroes, whose success has made them legends.

When Johnny Cecotto, Roberto Ravaglia and ‘Strietzel’ Stuck wax lyrical about the good old days and tell their stories from the paddock, I cannot help but chuckle. And I get goosebumps when Bruno Spengler lifts the glass trophy in the air as the DTM champion,” he added.

The movie begins with the maiden lap of the BMW M4 DTM at the Hockenheimring this year and ends with the same scene, in between the opening and closing shots over 50 years of pedigree being poured into our collective minds.

As Jens Marquardt said, “I can only recommend any BMW fan to watch this film.” You can order it on Amazon for €23.90 ($29.67).
