Turner Motorsport has confirmed that it has ordered a pair of new BMW M6 GT3s, which will make its debut in next year’s WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona.

As previously revealed by Sportscar365, the longtime BMW squad had laid out intentions of moving from its existing championship-winning Z4 GT3s to the new M6 platform for 2016.

“We are super excited for the new GT3 M6,” Will Turner said. “BMW Motorsport has-been extremely busy with testing and development on the new car so I am confident when we get the cars they will be very well sorted out

“The initial testing with the M6 has demonstrated the new car to be very strong so we can not wait to get our hands on these cars.”

Turner said he expects to take delivery of the cars by the end of the year, prior to testing for Daytona and the finalization of driver lineups.

The team also expects to return to Pirelli World Challenge with the M6 GT3 as well.

“Both IMSA and PWC season-long programs for 2016 are shaping up and I hope that we will be able to make an official announcement in the near future,” Turner added.

The above livery and design is not final, per the team.

“Since the M6 has not officially been released by BMW we took our best shot at coming up with an accurate rendering of the new M6 GT3 to show our fans what it may look like in the iconic Turner blue and yellow,” said Turner’s director of marketing, Jay Baier.

“Andy Blackmore did a great job with the artwork based off the images of the camouflage car.”
