Two of the BMW Z4 GT3s that will compete at the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps on 25th and 26th July will stand out from the crowd as a result of their extraordinary liveries.
This is particularly true of the BMW “Dream Team” car, with Alessandro Zanardi , Timo Glock and Bruno Spengler. It will feature a cartoon-style design, as an homage to the iconic Belgian comic series about racing driver ‘Michel Vaillant’. Furthermore, the design of one of the three BMW Z4 GT3s fielded by BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS at its home race will raise awareness of the Belgian Foundation against Cancer, a charity organization for whom the Belgian team is racing.
“Our priority for any race is to catch the eye through our sporting success – and we are confident we are well positioned to do precisely that at the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “However, if we also have the opportunity to please the fans with a special car design, we are only too happy to take it. The stories of comic hero ‘Michel Vaillant’ are known well beyond the Belgian border. I think this design is excellently suited to our extraordinary project with Alex Zanardi, Timo Glock and Bruno Spengler. I am also delighted that BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS is also doing its bit for a good cause with its special design.”
