In order for the BMW M4 GT3 2022 to be competitive right from the start, the Schnitzer Motorsport team will take over a large part of the development and test work over the next month. The experienced team under the leadership of Herbert Schnitzer jr. undertake the first test drives on the racetrack and thus lay the foundation for the hot phase of development in the 2021 season.
Parallel to the development of the new BMW M4 GT3, Schnitzer Motorsport will be on the road with the M6 GT3 on the Nurburgring Nordschleife. The current GT3 racing car will be used in the new Nurburgring endurance series NLS (from March 21) — previously known as VLN — and will also be used by Schnitzer in the 24-hour race on the Nurburgring Nordschleife (May 23/24, 2020 ) used.
Jens Marquardt (BMW Group Motorsport Director): “We are delighted to be able to build on the experience of BMW Team Schnitzer in the upcoming race track development and testing of our new GT flagship BMW M4 GT3. Among other things, the team will oversee the test drives with the new racing car and can provide valuable feedback for the further development steps. At the same time, the BMW Team Schnitzer is racing in its ‘second living room’ on the Nurburgring-Nordschleife. We are convinced that the team will be successful there with the BMW M6 GT3. ”
Herbert Schnitzer Jr. (Team Principal): “On the one hand the development and test work with the new BMW M4 GT3, on the other hand the races with the BMW M6 GT3 on the Nordschleife — this is an exciting and varied program for our team for the 2020 season. It’s nice that BMW Motorsport has placed its trust in us when working with the new GT3 racing car, and we will do everything we can to make our contribution to its successful development. The project with the BMW M4 GT3 is very important to us and we look forward to working closely with BMW Motorsport in development and on the test track. In addition, we are already looking forward to the races in the ‘Green Hell’. The Nurburgring-Nordschleife is closely linked to the history of BMW Team Schnitzer, and of course we would like to expand our track record there. "
