BMW Motorsport has announced that BMW Team Schnitzer will play a key role in development and testing of the new BMW M4 GT3 in 2020 in addition to making race appearances.

Team Schnitzer’s program in 2020 includes race outings with the BMW M6 GT3 at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, where the team will contest the Nürburgring Endurance Series as well as the 24-hour race.

“As part of the project, the team will oversee the test drives with the new race car and will provide valuable feedback for the further development steps,” explained BMW Group motorsport director Jens Marquardt.

“At the same time, BMW Team Schnitzer will be in racing action in their ‘home from home’ at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. We are confident that the team will enjoy success there with the BMW M6 GT3.”

Planned for delivery ahead of the 2022 season, the BMW M4 GT3 will be the new number one car in the BMW M Motorsport customer program. Initial test drives with the M4 GT3 are planned for the 2020 season as part of the development stage.

Team principal Herbert Schnitzer Jr added, “It’s great that BMW Motorsport is entrusting us with working with the new GT3 car, and we will give everything to play our part in successful development.”
