BMW TEAM MTEK QUALIFIES IN THE TOP-FIVE ON WEC DEBUT

BMW Team MTEK kick-started the BMW M8 GTE’s FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) campaign at “The Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps” in Belgium with a fifth place qualifying position.

BMW works team drivers Tom Blomqvist (GBR) and António Félix da Costa (POR) piloted the #82 BMW M8 GTE to its promising debut WEC starting position with team-mates Nick Catsburg (NED) and Martin Tomczyk (GER) ready to line up on the grid in ninth in the GTE Pro class.

 Reactions on The Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps:

Tom Blomqvist: (#82 BMW M8 GTE, 5th place):

“We’re happy to be inside the top-five in the GTE Pro class for the WEC Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. It’s a competitive class and the four cars ahead of us are Championship stalwarts. I was super happy with my fastest lap and feel I got the most out of the M8 GTE.”

Nick Catsburg (#81 BMW M8 GTE, 9th place):

“More importantly than our starting positions, we are pleased to report that we’ve had three trouble-free practice sessions – yes, pace will play a significant role tomorrow but reliability is imperative to success.”
