Mike Renner is a professional driver for BMW and is responsible for corporate sales at the BMW Performance Center in Greer, South Carolina. Mike began racing in 1983 and has competed in a variety of classes, including GT, showroom stock, improved touring and sports racers over the past 27 years. He started instructing at the BMW Performance Center just after it opened in the fall of 1999. His list of trainees includes new drivers, racers, F.B.I. agents and Secret Service members who are assigned the task of presidential protection. Mike received international instructor certification in basic, advanced, advanced M vehicles, intensive, perfection, and racetrack. Included in Mike’s duties as a driver for BMW is the opportunity to drive BMW racecars from their historic fleet.
Bill Auberlen is one of BMW’s most prestigious drivers, having raced (and won) more BMW races than any other driver. He is widely considered the most successful driver in BMW's history. Auberlen's racing career started in IMSA GTU. He's won several world championships with Turner Motorsports, competed in the 24 Hours of LeMans, and helped elevate the BMW Motorsport's PTG team in Grand-Am GT and ALMS. 2017 was a banner year in IMSA GTLM for Auberlen and Team RLL, as they won four races, including the season finale at Petit LeMans. That marked Bill's 400th race with BMW and his 151st victory with ///M Power. Bill has won six professional racing championships, has the most poles and the second most wins ever of any driver in American sports car history.
