PODIUM FOR THE BMW M4 GT4 ON ITS USA DEBUT

The new BMW M4 GT4 enjoyed an outstanding race debut in North America this weekend. The number 82 car finished runner-up in the BMW Endurance Challenge, the four-hour race that forms the opening round of the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (CTSC) at Daytona (USA).

James Clay and Tyler Cook (both USA) fought back brilliantly from 19th place on the grid to climb into second place over the final few laps. This meant an acclaimed podium finish for the BimmerWorld Racing team. The second BMW M4 GT4 in the race also made good progress through the field. Toby Grahovec, Jason Hart and Mike Vess (all USA) from the Classic BMW team started the race from 34th place, but produced a fantastic performance to finish fourth and narrowly miss out on another podium for BMW. BimmerWorld Racing had two reasons to celebrate.

In the Street Tuner class, Devin Jones and Nick Galante (both USA) converted pole position to a dominant class victory in their BMW 328i. The BMW Endurance Challenge was opened by BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt with the words “Drivers, please start your engines.” Frank van Meel, President of BMW M GmbH, started the race with the green flag. The new BMW M5 Safety Car led the field on the formation lap.
