Munich (DE), 20th May 2016. The BMW M6 GT3 will receive an extra boost of energy at the 24-hour races at the Nürburgring (DE) and Spa-Francorchamps (BE), as well as at the end-of-year FIA GT World Cup in Macau (MO): Chinese company CATL will support BMW Motorsport as Official Partner at these highlights of the GT season. From 27th to 29th May, the logo of one of the world’s leading manufacturers of energy storage systems will adorn the BMW M6 GT3s of the ROWE Racing and Schubert Motorsport teams at the Nürburgring 24 Hours.

 

The endurance classic at Spa-Francorchamps takes place on 30th/31st July, while the streets of Macau host the spectacular finale of the GT year on 19th/20th November. ROWE Racing will contest both events with the BMW M6 GT3.

 

“It is nice to have CATL on our side as Official Partner of BMW Motorsport at these important outings with the BMW M6 GT3,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “Performance, reliability and efficiency are key factors in any success in GT and endurance racing.
