Having experienced what many would consider a semi-successful season (on both sides of the Atlantic) thus far, BMW Motorsport has signaled it’s intention to participate in the inaugural running of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup.
BMW Motorsport’s efforts will utilise the services of both US and European factory-supported teams. With Schnitzer coordinating efforts for the Bavarian marque at both Silverstone and Zuhai events. Driving duties will be handled by Dirk Werner and Jörg Müller.
The Petit Le Mans event will be coordinated by the US factory outfit, Rahal Letterman. Standard series driver lineups of Milner/Auberlen and Hand/Müller will apply with additional driver support in the form of works drivers Werner/Priaulx.
The announcement makes BMW the first of many GT marques to provide an official commitment to the ILMC manufacturers title.
