Munich. BMW works driver Alessandro Zanardi (ITA) is getting back behind the wheel of a BMW race car. He will participate in the final endurance race of this season’s Italian GT Championship at Monza (ITA) from 6th to 8th November. Zanardi will again team up with BMW Team Italia with Team Manager Roberto Ravaglia (ITA), and will share the cockpit of a modified BMW M6 GT3 with Stefano Comandini (ITA) and Marius Zug (GER).

 

This will be Zanardi’s third outing with BMW Team Italia and the BMW M6 GT3 in the Italian GT Championship. 2016 was unforgettable, when he made his debut at the wheel of a BMW M6 GT3 in this series at Mugello (ITA) and took victory in the Sunday race.

 

“I am already really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the BMW M6 GT3,” said Zanardi. “It is always nice to take to the track with BMW Team Italia. My old mate Roberto Ravaglia’s team is like a second family to me. I am also looking forward to working with my close friends at BMW M Motorsport again. And I am obviously also looking forward to Monza. This racetrack is a true classic and you can sense the remarkable history as soon as you pass through the gates of the Royal Park. This year, the race in Monza represents much more than just a race because it takes place in the region of Italy that was affected the most by the pandemic. Racing in Monza embodies the desire to start again after the difficult time we have all been through.”
