BMW M Motorsport is competing with two BMW M8 GTE cars in the FIA WEC under the BMW Team MTEK banner. The colour scheme for both cars is a nod to the long motor racing history of BMW – with the innovative BMW M Motorsport design, giving a brand-new interpretation to the classic BMW M colours of light blue, dark blue and red. A total of seven BMW works drivers will be present to drive the number 81 and number 82 BMW M8 GTE cars: Martin Tomczyk, Nick Catsburg, Philipp Eng, António Félix da Costa, Augusto Farfus, Alexander Sims and Tom Blomqvist. Blomqvist will be the official substitute for Farfus, when the Brazilian will be unavailable due to his DTM commitments. Each of the drivers bring with them valuable experience gained during the BMW M8 GTE’s extensive test programme.
