Rowe Racing Set for Switch to BMW

Rowe Racing set for switch to BMW M6 GT3s for 2016…


After several years in collaboration with Mercedes, Rowe Racing is set to make a switch to the new BMW M6 GT3 for 2016. (En Français)

The German squad, led by Hans-Peter Naundorf, is understood to be finalizing a deal with the Bavarian manufacturer to compete in the Blancpain GT Series and Nurburgring 24 with multiple M6 GT3 cars, and likely with factory support.

Rowe made its full-season Blancpain Endurance debut this year with a pair of Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3s and remained in contention for the championship until the final round of the season at the Nurburgring.

A formal announcement is expected to come this weekend at BMW’s end-of-year awards ceremony, which is being held in Munich.

They would join the previously announced M6 GT3 effort from ROAL Motorsport in the Blancpain GT Series.
