MK-Motorsport is closely connected with motor racing enthusiasm of the director of the company Michael Krankenberg. 29 years' experience in motor racing, including his victory in the Group B Racing in "24-hour Le Mans 1986", successful participation in the Sports Car World Championships in 1983-1986 and in the spectacular German Racing Championships of 1978 and 1979. In 1986 Michael Krankenberg finished his own racing driver career for the moment, therefore MK-Motorsport took part as a "team". 3 rd overall in 24-hour race Nurburgring over 200 vehicles, the only victory of a private team over the company teams of BMW, Mercedes, Opel and Ford in the German Touring Championship. In 1992 it was the most successful team in the German Touring Car Trophy till 2,500 ccm. Since 1991 Michael Krankenberg has been active as a driver again. To date he has got 21 first places in sprint and long-distance racing.

There is no doubt that this fact has played its significant role for the extraordinary status achieved by the Otigheim company in the whole tuner scene. Besides this the experience gathered by Michael Krankenberg's team is for the benefit of customers. Alongside with the classical engine performance the peculiarities of the expanding enterprise are also turbo kits for 4- cylinder-model and compressor versions for V8 engines, as well as exhaust systems and KAT-systems, excellent suspensions, the famous MK-wheel-programme, discreet aerodynamics, interior in precious wood, leather, chrome and carbon. All MK-products are exclusively own developments and constructions, which underline BMW automobile individuality. MK-Motorsport is one of the three worldwide-certified BMW tuners. The sale emphasis of MK-products lies firstly on delivery to the BMW dealer association as well as to direct customers. In addition to German customers the foreign market is of great importance and the role of export in the total turnover is ever growing.

Being always represented in all important automobile fairs, thanks to its BMW improving programme the company MK-Motorsport has its own clientele, who alongside with the optimal customer service attach importance to the special know-how.
