Munich. The test phase for the BMW M4 GT3 drew to a close in December with the final tests in Daytona (USA). The new GT flagship is now ready for its first races in the hands of BMW M Motorsport teams. First up are the endurance highlights in Dubai (UAE) and Daytona in January 2022. BMW Team RLL, Turner Motorsport, Schubert Motorsport and ST Racing have already received their cars ahead of their starts in the two 24-hour races. Meanwhile, delivery of the BMW M4 GT3 continues.

 

“After all the testing, we can hardly wait for our BMW M Motorsport teams and drivers to finally go head to head with quality opposition on the racetrack,” said Mike Krack, Head of BMW M Motorsport. “So far, everyone who has driven the BMW M4 GT3 has been extremely positive about it. As such, we are confident that we will be competitive from the word go and in a position to challenge for top results. The extremely high demand for the BMW M4 GT3 has exceeded our expectations. We are very pleased and honoured by this trust. We are now looking forward to seeing how our new car fares in the hands of many different drivers and teams at racetracks and in racing series all over the world.”

 

First up, on 14th/15th January, is the 24h Dubai, for which Schubert Motorsport has already registered BMW M works driver Nick Yelloly (GBR), Jordan Witt (GBR), Marcel Lenerz and Jens Liebhauser (both GER) for the #30 BMW M4 GT3. ST Racing lines up with two cars. Jon Miller, Chandler Hull (both USA), Nick Wittmer and Louis-Philippe Montour (both CAN) will be at the wheel of the #28 BMW M4 GT3, which, like Schubert Motorsport, is registered for the top GT3 class. In the Pro-Am class, Samantha Tan (CAN), Bryson Morris, Anthony Lazzaro, Harry Gottsacker and Tyler Maxson (all USA) will share the driving duties in the number 1 car.

 

Two weeks later, BMW Team RLL and Turner Motorsport will start with a total of three BMW M4 GT3s at the “Rolex 24” in Daytona. At the wheel for Turner Motorsport in the GTD class will be BMW M works driver Jens Klingmann (GER), together with the US trio of Bill Auberlen, Robby Foley and Michael Dinan. The drivers for the two BMW M4 GT3s in the GTD-PRO class will be announced in January.

 

The season kicks off in February for Walkenhorst Motorsport. The team from Melle (GER) plans to run two BMW M4 GT3s in the Asian Le Mans Series. The #34 car will be driven by Nick Catsburg (NED), Jon Miller and Chandler Hull, the #35 by team principal Henry Walkenhorst, Jörg Breuer, Friedrich and Mario von Bohlen (all GER). The very compact season consists of two 4-hour races in Dubai on 11th/12th February, and two 4-hour races in Abu Dhabi (UAE) on 19th/20th February. All the other teams will receive their cars in good time ahead of the start of the season in their respective racing series. It is already confirmed that the BMW M4 GT3 will race in the most prestigious GT series in Europe, North America and Asia, as well as highlights like the 24-hour races at the Nürburgring (GER) and Spa-Francorchamps (BEL).

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle- specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the following web site www.dat.de.
