BMW Team Schnitzer and Walkenhorst Motorsport will each compete with one BMW M6 GT3 in the opening race of the Intercontinental GT Challenge in Bathurst.


The BMW M6 GT3 will be appearing in the upcoming Intercontinental GT Challenge season as part of the BMW Motorsport programme. BMW Team Schnitzer and Walkenhorst Motorsport will each compete with one car in the opening race of the global race series in Bathurst on 3 February 2019. Three BMW drivers will be sharing each cockpit.

Both BMW teams have plenty of momentum as they approach the legendary 'Mount Panorama' in south-eastern Australia. BMW Team Schnitzer claimed victory at the FIA GT World Cup in mid-November - and intends to build on this strong performance at Bathurst. As he was in Macau, Augusto Farfus will be at the wheel of the #42 BMW M6 GT3 in the Intercontinental GT Challenge.

His teammates will be Martin Tomczyk and local hero Chaz Mostert. Last year, BMW Team Schnitzer secured pole position at Bathurst, but the BMW M6 GT3 then had to retire early from the race.
