RaceRoom - BMW Pack And Portimao Circuit Update Released

KW Studios released a new update for RaceRoom Racing Experience and added the new BMW Pack 2024 DLC to the car portfolio.

The BMW Pack brings us the BMW M2 CS Racing, BMW M4 GT4 (G82), and the somewhat older BMW M8 GTE. Furthermore, the deployed update also includes a free full rebuild of the already available Portimao Circuit. The track is revised from the ground up, featuring big improvements on the circuit layout and the visual fidelity of the track.

The BMW Pack 2024 pack, including the BMW M2 CS, BMW M4 GT4 (G82), the BMW M8 GTE, and 56 liveries is available via the RaceRoom Store for €10.79.

BMW M2 CS Racing

BMW M2 CS Racing

The BMW M2 CS Racing is a track-focused car purpose-built for various racing series around the world, including the BMW M2 CS Racing Cup Benelux and the one-make BMW M2 Cup that runs alongside the German DTM Series. The Clubsport variant caters to privateer racing teams with new and experienced drivers.

The M2 CS (Competition Sport) is powered by a Front, longitudinally mounted S55 inline-six-cylinder engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology that delivers up to 450 horsepower to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

BMW M4 GT4 (G82)

BMW M4 GT4 (G82)

The lightweight (1400Kg) BMW M4 GT4 (G82) is a track-focused race car built for the GT4 category of motorsport. It’s the latest iteration of the M4 GT4 series, based on the G82 generation of the M4 car.

The M4 GT4 is powered by a six-cylinder inline engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology, which is able to deploy up to 550 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque.



The BMW M8 GTE is an endurance grand tourer (GT) car developed in late 2016. The car made its debut in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the FIA World Endurance Championship for the 2018 season. The M8 GTE replaced the BMW M6 GTLM and marked BMW Motorsport’s return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans after a six-year hiatus. The car is based on the road-going BMW M8.

The M8 GTE is powered by a front-mid mounted BMW n63/1 turbocharged V8 engine, the motorsport variant of the S63 motor found in roadgoing BMW models such as the F90 M5 and the BMW 8 Series (G15). The engine’s capacity was reduced from 4.4 liters to 4 liters to comply with regulations for the GTE class.

The car competed until the end of the 2021 season and BMW retired it from competition. BMW North America sold two of the five chassis owned for display and historical racing purposes.

Autodromo Internacional do Algarve (Portimão)

The Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, better known as Portimao, is a 4.653 km (2.891 mi) race circuit located in Portimão, Algarve region, of Portugal. The track has been in use since 2008. It features a good mix of corners, including fast-flowing ones and tight hairpins, that provide a thrilling experience for both drivers and spectators.

The track returned to the Formula 1 calendar for the 2020 and 2021 seasons as part of the revised F1 schedule. Besides the Portuguese GP, the MotoGP, World SBK, ELMS, DTM, TCR Europe, and the Lamborghini Super Trofeo World Finals were part of the Portimao event calendar. Alongside the main circuit, the venue boasts modern facilities designed to cater to various motorsport needs, including a karting track, an off-road track, and a technology park.
