ROWE Racing will continue to compete in the Blancpain GT Series with a pair of BMW M6 GT3s, with the German squad aiming to defend its win at the Total 24 Hours of Spa in July.

The team has not yet confirmed its drivers for the ten-round championship this season, although the lineups are expected to include a combination of ROWE regulars and BMW Motorsport factory drivers.

ROWE scored just one Blancpain GT race win last year, at Spa, and came sixth in the Pro Cup teams’ championship at the end of the season.

“We are really looking forward to racing in the Blancpain GT Series for the third year in a row,” said team principal Hans-Peter Naundorf.

“The series is the benchmark for GT3 racing in Europe. It is brilliantly organised and littered with cars from strong manufacturers and the best drivers in the sport.

“Our big goal for 2017 is obviously to defend our title at the Spa 24 Hours. It would be a dream come true for us to repeat last year’s win.

“We are still in the process of finalizing the driver line-ups for our two BMW M6 GT3s, however, we are very confident that we will once again be able to field very fast and experienced teams of drivers, just as we did last year.”
