BMW M6 GT3 Delivered To 2016 Race Teams
Many BMW teams have had plenty to be pleased about over the past week, as they received their new BMW M6 GT3s. In Schubert Motorsport, ROWE Racing, Walkenhorst Motorsport, BMW Sports Trophy Team Studie, Team Alnex, BMW Team SRM and Boutsen Ginion Racing, seven BMW customer racing teams can now work on their new cars for the coming GT season in their own workshops.
This heralds the phase, in which they prepare the BMW M6 GT3 for its first tests and race outings.
This was a particularly special moment for Australian outfit BMW Team SRM, as team principal Steven Richards’ (AU) team returns to the Australian GT Championship in March after a 20-year absence. The other teams must wait a little longer for their first races.
Schubert Motorsport, ROWE Racing and Walkenhorst Motorsport are preparing meticulously for their starts in the VLN and at the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring (DE). The first race on the Nordschleife (DE) takes place on 2nd April. For ROWE Racing and Boutsen Ginion Racing, the Blancpain GT Series season gets underway in Misano (IT) from 8th to 10th April.
One week later, Schubert Motorsport takes to the track in Oschersleben (DE) for the first round of the ADAC GT Masters. BMW Sports Trophy Team Studie and Team Alnex will contest the first race of the season in the Japanese GT Championship in Okayama (JP) on 9th/10th April.
