Blancpain GT Series: Four BMW M6 GT3s for the 2017 season.

19.03.2017: During the official test drives in Le Castellet (FRA), the organisers of the Blancpain GT Series took the opportunity to publish the lists

During the official test drives in Le Castellet (FRA), the organisers of the Blancpain GT Series took the opportunity to publish the lists of starters for the coming season.

The 30 cars that will be competing in the Sprint and Endurance Cups, battling for overall victory in the Blancpain GT Series, include two BMW M6 GT3s from the ROWE Racing team. Walkenhorst Motorsport is joining the series this year.

The team led by Henry Walkenhorst (GER) is competing in the Endurance Cup with two BMW M6 GT3s. BMW Motorsport Juniors Ricky Collard (GBR) and Nico Menzel (GER) will be sharing a cockpit with Christian Krognes (NOR).

It is the perfect opportunity for Collard and Menzel to gain experience at the top level of international GT racing.

 The second car from Walkenhorst Motorsport is competing in the AM Cup. Team principal Walkenhorst will be sharing driving duties with Stefan van Campenhoudt (BEL) and David Schiwietz (GER).

The season starts on 2nd April in Misano (ITA) with the first race weekend in the Sprint Cup.
