Yesterday Prince Leopold “Poldi” of Bavaria attended the BMW presentation of the new Z4 Roadster at the BMW Pavillon in Munich, Germany. The prince is known for his passion for cars and racing, something he developped in his youth already.

He started his career with rallying and in 1969 he moved to touring car racing, winning the North American Championships for Porsche in 1972. In 1984 he also took part in the legendary sports car endurance race 24 Hours of Le Man together with Walter Brun and Bob Akin, finishing fourth. In 1986, Leopold became a factory driver for the Munich based car manufacturer BMW and although he retired from competitive racing in 1998, he remains involved with the BMW racing team as an adviser.
