The BMW M6 GT3 made its debut at Macau’s iconic “Guia Circuit” in 2016. At the wheel: Nick Catsburg of the ROWE Racing team. “The entire weekend was simply an incredible experience,” he said. “The circuit is unique, and extremely difficult.” The traditional GT race in Macau took on even greater importance in 2015, when the International Automobile Federation named it the official FIA World Cup. The narrow but fast street circuit is 6.2 kilometres long and offers very few overtaking opportunities.
The BMW contingent for this year’s FIA GT World Cup in Macau, from 16th to 19th November 2017, is growing. As well as the 18th BMW Art Car, designed by Cao Fei, a further two BMW M6 GT3s will take their place on the grid at the legendary “Guia Circuit”. The two cars will be run by AAI Motorsports and driven by DTM champion Marco Wittmann and Chaz Mostert. Wittmann drove for AAI in the GT race in Macau in 2014, when he finished seventh. Mostert comes from the Australian V8 Supercars championship and drove the BMW M6 GT3 in the 12-hour race in Bathurst at the start of the year.
