The 2017 DTM season is over – but at least three BMW works drivers will meet again on the racetrack in November when they will contest this year’s FIA GT World Cup in Macau (CHN).
Marco Wittmann (GER), Augusto Farfus (BRA) and Tom Blomqvist (GBR) will take on the challenge of the legendary “Guia Circuit”. Wittmann, DTM Champion in 2014 and 2016, will be behind the wheel of one of the BMW M6 GT3s with the FIST Team – AAI Motorsports. “I have been to Macau several times and love this track. It is very demanding and doesn’t allow for even the smallest of mistakes,” said Wittmann. “With its demanding mix of fast and very narrow sections, it really gets the pulse rate of every driver going. I enjoyed great success there in Formula 3 in particular, and made it onto the podium. My GT experience there so far has been in the BMW Z4 GT3. I’m excited to see how the BMW M6 GT3 fares on the narrow streets. I’m really looking forward to my final race of the year and hope that my win at the DTM finale in Hockenheim will spur me on in Macau.” Farfus will take charge of the 18th BMW Art Car, designed by Cao Fei (CHN), in competition for BMW Team Schnitzer. Blomqvist will contest the race in another BMW M6 GT3 for the ROWE Racing team.
