BMW Team Brasil confirms Blancpain GT entries

After two years spent only in sprint racing, BMW Team Brasil expands their operation to the whole Blancpain GT Series, as they will participate in the Sprint and Endurance Series with the usual pair of BMW Z4 GT3 models. SRO made some effort to make more teams race in the whole Blancpain GT Series calendar, and the Washington Bezerra-led team is one of them.

About the drivers, there are only three names confirmed to the season. The No. 0 BMW repeats the lineup of the last season, with Cacá Bueno and Sergio Jimenez, and the third driver for the endurances events will be confirmed soon. The No. 77 BMW only has Valdeno Brito as confirmed driver.

And even though the BMW Z4 GT3 is proven to be a competitive car, the BMW Team Brasil leaders entered in discussion with BMW Motorsport to see which areas can be improved in the car, as they complain that the Balance of Performance is pretty detrimental on their performances.

Their entry in the Blancpain Endurance Series will mark the return of a Brazilian flagged team to the 24 Hours of Spa, as the last Brazilian team in the Belgian endurance classic was in 2009, with the Sangari Team Brasil squad with support of DKR Engineering in a Corvette C6.R GT1.
