Within a matter of a few years, the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) has established itself as one of the most important racing series in the world. The plan is for BMW to enter the WEC with a works programme in the 2018 season. The highlight of this championship is the 24-hour race in Le Mans. BMW claimed overall victory there in 1999 with the open prototype BMW V12 LMR. The last time a BMW lined-up on the grid at the 24 Hours of Le Mans was in 2011: back then, the BMW M3 GT finished third in the LM GTE class.

New challenge for BMW Motorsport.

Since it was launched in 2012, the FIA WEC has developed very well, forged new paths in many regards, and gained a lot of fans. BMW Team MTEK is the crew charged with making this project a success for BMW, and began an extensive test and preparation programme in 2017. Martin Tomczyk, Alexander Sims and António Félix da Costa will take on the driving duties during this phase. BMW Motorsport is developing a completely new GTE car.
