BMA Group confirms return to Ligier European Series for 2021!

Following a very successful maiden season, BMA Group once more decided to sponsor Mathieu Martins who will return to the Ligier European Series for 2021. At the controls of the Orhès Racing Ligier JS2 R, Mathieu set this year target on winning the title in the JS2 R category.

In 2020, Mathieu Martins was one of the first drivers to join the Filière Endurance created by Jean-Bernard Bouvet, with the main goal of becoming a professional race car driver. He then moved on to the Ligier European Series in the #86 M Racing Ligier JS2 R, sponsored by BMA Group, and his performance was immediately a success. In Heat 2 of the season, at the very demanding Spa-Francorchamps track, he won one of the two poles and finished second in the first race before conquering his first win on the second race. In Heat 4 at Monza, he took his second victory of the season and repeated this amazing performance at the final meeting in Portimão. Overall, he finished third in the Ligier JS2 R category, with four pole positions, three victories and two second places, which made BMA Group extremely happy and proud with the result!

“This is an opportunity to strengthen our awareness, consolidate our positioning and support junior drivers with strong potential! To sponsor Mathieu was an easy decision, also because he has dual nationality – Portuguese and French – so for BMA Group Paris and Lisboa it makes even more sense! We just wish Mathieu the best 2021 racing experience, expecting to reflect our values in what SPEED & RESISTANCE concerns” said Carlos Martins.

For 2021, Mathieu Martins returns to the Ligier European Series with the JS2 R title as his one and only goal. Considering the excellent results of 2020, and sure that this year will be even better, BMA Group will to support Mathieu Martins in his conquer for the title and sponsor his car: Orhès Racing Ligier JS2 R.

“My coach told me that it takes one year to learn and one year to win. So, after a first year of learning, my objective is clear: continue to learn my job and go for the victory in  the championship in the Ligier JS2 R category. I’m really very happy to be back at Orhès Racing. They taught me the basics of driving. I know everyone in the team, it’s like my second family. I can’t wait to start this second season with them!”, said Mathieu Martins. At BMA Group, we too share this confidence and are very enthusiastic to see how this year’s amazing journey will be!
