While there has been some criticism of the feline-like snout, timing and scoring doesn’t care what the car looks like…

BMW M Motorsport is in the midst of a LMDh project for the 2023 season (see AutoInformed.com on IMSA – Porsche Virtually Shows LMDh Car), as well as its ambitious racing plans for the coming year. BMW Team RLL, which has been celebrating podiums with BMW M Motorsport since 2009, will compete in two LMDh prototypes as of 2023, which will be called BMW M LMDh. Alongside the LMDh test program, BMW Team RLL will field two BMW M4 GT3s in the new GTD Pro category during the 2022 IMSA season.* The transition will be one to watch as it is not without extreme challenges.

* BMW M Team RLL line-up for the season opener of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship 2022 is set. At the new BMW M4 GT3’s debut in the also-new GTD PRO category, two strong quartets of BMW M works drivers will be doing battle for the podium. In the #25 MOTUL BMW M4 GT3, Connor De Phillippi, John Edwards (both USA), Augusto Farfus (BRA) and Jesse Krohn (FIN) will take turns at the wheel; in the #24 car, Philipp Eng (AUT), Sheldon van der Linde (RSA), Marco Wittmann (GER) and Nick Yelloly (GBR) will be in action. Turner Motorsport is fielding a BMW M4 GT3 with the drivers Bill Auberlen, Robby Foley, Michael Dinan (all USA) and Jens Klingmann (GER) in the GTD class.
