BMW lands GT3

THE first BMW M6 GT3 has touched down in Australia, with BMW Team SRM (Steven Richards Motorsport) having now officially taken delivery of the brand new twin-turbo V8-powered racing car.

The new-generation GT3 car is the first of its kind to land in Australia, and will compete as a factory-supported entry in the Australian GT Championship under the BMW Team SRM banner this season.

The reigning Bathurst 1000 winners SRM squad will also provide on-track support and parts supply when other M6 GT3s join the Australian GT field in the future.

“These GT3 cars have the same technical innovations as modern road cars, so to have things like anti-lock braking and traction control, not to mention the aerodynamics – that makes them as exciting to drive as you can get,” Richards said.

Richards will have his first taste of the BMW Team SRM M6 GT3 at the car’s debut test session at Winton next week. The all-new BMW M6 GT3 is powered by a BMW 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower turbo technology, and replaces the successful BMW Z4 GT3 as the brand’s top-level GT3-specification racer.

The new model made its international racing debut at the gruelling 24 Hours of Daytona recently, with Michael Marsal, Markus Palttala, Maxime Martin, and Jesse Krohn teaming up to finish an impressive sixth in the GTD class.
