ROWE Racing will compete in the Blancpain GT Series again in 2017, and the team has its sights set firmly on the defence of its title at the iconic Total 24 Hours of Spa at the end of July. The German squad will once again run two BMW M6 GT3s, in what is the pinnacle of GT racing in Europe
ROWE Racing is now in its third season in the Blancpain GT Series. The greatest success in the team’s history came in 2016 at the 24-hour classic at Spa-Francorchamps. The driver line-ups for the two BMW M6 GT3s for the coming season are yet to be finalised. The allocation of drivers to cockpits will be announced by the pre-season test in Paul Ricard on 13th/14th March. Among those up for selection are a host of fast and experienced drivers from ROWE Racing and the squad of BMW Motorsport works drivers.
Hans-Peter Naundorf, team principal of ROWE Racing: “We are really looking forward to racing in the Blancpain GT Series for the third year in a row. The series is the benchmark for GT3 racing in Europe. It is brilliantly organised and littered with cars from strong manufacturers and the best drivers in the sport. Our big goal for 2017 is obviously to defend our title at the Total 24 Hours of Spa. It would be a dream come true for us to repeat last year’s win. We are still in the process of finalising the driver line-ups for our two BMW M6 GT3s, however, we are very confident that we will once again be able to field very fast and experienced teams of drivers, just as we did last year.”
