Munich. This weekend, the Intercontinental GT Challenge kicks off the new season with the Bathurst 12 Hour (AUS). In the thick of the action will be two BMW M6 GT3s, run by BMW Team Schnitzer and Walkenhorst Motorsport. In addition, the RHC-Jorgensen/Strom by Marc GT team will field the BMW M4 GT4 in Class B.

 

For BMW Team Schnitzer, this is the first race since the sudden loss of long-time team principal Charly Lamm. He will be buried this week in a private ceremony with close family members. The date for a memorial service in Charly’s honour will be announced at a later time. Under the circumstances, the sporting preview of the race at “Mount Panorama” is of little significance. BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt will, contrary to his original plans, travel to Bathurst to support BMW Team Schnitzer at this difficult time.

 

Jens Marquardt said: “After the remarkable race at Daytona, which we won for Charly Lamm, we now move on to the next classic on the other side the world. I want to stand at BMW Team Schnitzer’s side at Bathurst. We will be made all the more aware of how deeply we miss Charly this weekend. We will endeavour to honour him with a good result again at Mount Panorama.” 

 

Daytona winner Augusto Farfus (BRA), Martin Tomczyk (GER) and local favourite Chaz Mostert (AUS) will drive the #42 BMW M6 GT3 for BMW Team Schnitzer. For Walkenhorst Motorsport, BMW works drivers Nick Catsburg (NED) and Mikkel Jensen (DEN) will be joined at the wheel of the #34 car by Christian Krognes (NOR).

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/.
