“Not even two months have passed since we said goodbye to the BMW M8 GTE at Petit Le Mans, and we are already at the first major IMSA event for the new BMW M4 GT3 – said Mike Krack, Head of BMW M Motorsport – our drivers who will compete on the two cars of the BMW M Team RLL we opted for speed and experience, considering both the Daytona and the new car “.
“Almost all of our factory drivers have already participated in the 24 Hours and will work together to find the perfect set-up for the BMW M4 at the International Speedway already during the ‘Roar’ tests. I’m sure we will be very well prepared for the first adventure in GTD PRO series. I’m also curious to see how the Turner Motorsport guys will perform in the GTD Class. “
