BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt announced that the BMW Z4 GTE will replace the successful M3 GT for the upcoming championships of ALMS (Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing).
Also, the Z4 GTE is the successor of Z4 GT3, which was one of the best racing cars last years. We know that E92 BMW M3 GT has won many titles (won 7 races) in the ALMS championships and it will leave the Z4 GTE for the next challenges.
Jens Marquardt said that they are focussing on the BMW Z4 because the Z4 GT3 has been a very good racing car in the ALMS since 2009.
The BMW Z4 GTE is based on its predecessor Z4 GT3, which was one good racing car for the GT3 championships. It was specially produced for this competition, ALMS.
BMW Motorsport will use the new Z4 GTE to compete for the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing this year 2013.
The season will start on March 16 and the BMW Z4 GTE will be driven by some professional racing drivers: Bill Auberlen, Dirk Mueller and Joey Hand.
