The new BMW M4 GT4 is also set for its Bathurst debut this year. The newly-developed customer racing car for the GT4 category successfully completed its first race outing in customer hands at the Dubai 24 Hours in mid-January and now takes its place on the grid at this classic Australian endurance race. BMW customer teams will run a total of four BMW M4 GT4s in Bathurst.
As well as the BMW M6 GT3, BMW Team SRM will also field the #44 BMW M4 GT4, with drivers Dean Grant, Xavier West and Cameron Hill sharing driving duties. The cockpit of the #30 BMW M4 GT4, run by the Boat Works Racing team, will be home to some well-known names: Australian racing legend Tony Longhurst is team principal and driver. He lines up alongside Matt Brabham, grandson of three-time Formula 1 world champion Jack Brabham, and Aaaron Seton. Daren Jorgensen, Cameron Lawrence, Brett Strom and Kuno Wittmer will alternate at the wheel of the Marc GT #13 BMW M4 GT4. The #15 BMW M4 GT4 will be run by Baigent Motorsport and driven by the New Zealand quartet of Kent Baigent, Neil Allport, Matt Spratt and Ash Blewett.
