BMW teams took their first deliveries of the new M4 GT3 last week, as the competitive debut of the new racer is set to take place at the 24 Hours of Dubai race on January 13–15. Both ST Racing and Schubert Motorsport will be competing in that race and took delivery of their new cars at the BMW Welt in Munich.
The pair of ST Racing M4 GT3s were delivered to Team Principal Ken Tan and daughter (and driver) Samantha Tan with their unique livery wrap that is reminiscent of BMW’s Art Cars. Both ST Racing cars will compete at Dubai, with Samantha Tan, Bryson Morris, Anthony Lazzaro, Harry Gottsacker, and Tyler Maxson in one car, and Jon Miller, Chandler Hull, Nick Wittmer, and Louis-Philippe Montour in the other. ST Racing will campaign one M4 GT3 in the full 24H season and another in the SRO GT World Challenge America season.
Schubert Motorsport team principal Torsten Schubert picked up his M4 GT3 on the same day as ST Racing and will enter the car in the Dubai race with works driver Nick Yelloly along with Jordan Witt, Marcel Lenerz, and Jens Liebhauser. Torsten Schubert himself will also compete in the race in one of the team’s M2 CS Racing cars. The Schubert team will compete in the ADAC GT Masters series in Europe with the new car. Fellow German team Walkenhorst Motorsport also received their new cars and have already confirmed they will race in the Asian Le Mans Series in 2022.
Turner Motorsport also received their first M4 GT3 in preparation for an upcoming test, which we’ll give an update on next time. —David Haueter
