Spa-Francorchamps. BMW Team MTEK kick-started the BMW M8 GTE’s FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) campaign at “The Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps” in Belgium with a fifth place qualifying position. BMW works team drivers Tom Blomqvist (GBR) and António Félix da Costa (POR) piloted the #82 BMW M8 GTE to its promising debut WEC starting position with team-mates Nick Catsburg (NED) and Martin Tomczyk (GER) ready to line up on the grid in ninth in the GTE Pro class.

 

Reactions on The Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps:

 

Tom Blomqvist: (#82 BMW M8 GTE, 5th place):

“We’re happy to be inside the top-five in the GTE Pro class for the WEC Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. It’s a competitive class and the four cars ahead of us are Championship stalwarts. I was super happy with my fastest lap and feel I got the most out of the M8 GTE.”

 

Nick Catsburg (#81 BMW M8 GTE, 9th place):

“More importantly than our starting positions, we are pleased to report that we’ve had three trouble-free practice sessions – yes, pace will play a significant role tomorrow but reliability is imperative to success.”

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
