BMW Z4 GTE Programme Confirmed

We’re hearing that the expected confirmation, at the end of year BMW party, of a 2013 programme in the ALMS for a new GT class (GTE spec) Z4, has indeed come to pass.

Jens Marquardt confirmed that all GT programmes will focus on the Z4 as a single platform – “The BMW Z4 GT3 has been very successful GT3 on the scene in recent years and has proven its ability to win races. I am convinced that this car will play an important role in the ALMS.”

That marks the end of a successful career for the BMW M3 GT2, and whilst its replacement is confirmed for a racing campaign in the ALMS, there is no news yet of  any commitment to race the new Z4 GTE elsewhere.
