BMW to Help Design the Team USA’s Bobsled for 2014

With the 2012 Summer Olympics behind us, it’s hard to believe it’s already time to start thinking about the upcoming Winter Olympics in 2014. Like with this summer’s festivities, BMW plans on being involved with the games.

BMW North America announced it is developing a two-man bobsled for Team USA during the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. It plans to use its expertise in automotive engineering to completely re-engineer the two-man bobsled.

The new bobsled is part of a collaborative effort between BMW North America and the USA Bobsled & Skeleton Federation (USBSF). We look forward to seeing the improvements in the new bobsled in the Winter Games!
