There are also plans to field a second car. Two of the drivers of this second car will be Augusto Farfus and Martin Tomczyk. All other drivers and the team will be announced at a later date. The plan is also to contest the Nürburgring 24 Hours. ROWE Racing will be one of the teams. BMW works drivers such as Marco Wittmann, Philipp Eng, Farfus, Tomczyk and Timo Scheider will be part of the overall drivers’ squad. FALKEN Motorsports and Walkenhorst Motorsport will field additional BMW M6 GT3 models as customer teams. The full squad of drivers and teams will also be announced at a later date.

The car will have this name after a technical update as of 2019; the entry-level model was previously the BMW M235i Racing. Beitske Visser will continue to be supported within the BMW Motorsport Junior programme. Among other things, she will gain valuable experience as a reserve and test driver in Formula E. Mikkel Jensen is promoted to the rank of BMW works driver. Which new talented youngsters join the programme will be decided in a selection process next year.
