Racing Bart Mampaey (formerly Juma Racing) is a racing team based in Mechelen, Belgium that runs the BMW Team RBM operation in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters.

History[edit]

The team was formed as Juma Racing in 1974 by Julien Mampaey, the father of current team principal Bart Mampaey. Among their achievements were three wins with BMW in the Spa 24 Hours, in 1977, 1982 and 1983.

Bart Mampaey went on to create his own RBM team in 1994 which started competing in the BMW Compact Cup. They finished first and second in the Group N Spa 24 Hours in 1997, and ran the BMW Fina Bastos Team to overall victory in 1998, with Marc Duez, Eric van de Poele and Alain Cudini.

European Touring Car Championship[edit]

Team RBM started racing in the European Touring Car Championship in 2002, fielding a BMW 320i for Swede Fredrik Ekblom under the name BMW Team Belgium, who scored three podiums and finished sixth in the standings. Andy Priaulx joined the team for 2003 and the team claimed three race wins under the new banner of BMW Team UK. Priaulx went on to win the drivers title the following year, when it ran a second 320i for Kurt Mollekens under the BMW Team Belgium-Luxembourg banner.

World Touring Car Championship[edit]

The ETCC became the WTCC in 2005 and Priaulx became world champion, before successfully defending his crown again in 2006 and 2007. Occasionally the team has run a second car, once for Dutchman Duncan Huisman at Macau in 2005, for Dane Jan Magnussen at Macau in 2006 and for Swede Fredrik Ekblom at Anderstorp, Monza and Macau in 2007. In 2010, BMW scaled down to a two car effort, with Andy Priaulx and Augusto Farfus driving.

RBM is also responsible for assembling the cars that compete in the Belgian Mini Challenge.
