At Spa-Francorchamps, the home team fields two BMW M Hybrid V8s and two BMW M4 GT3s. Following a strong performance at Imola, drivers of the #20 car aim to climb the hypercar ranks while their #15 counterparts strive for a podium. Meanwhile, the M4 GT3 teams, fresh from a one-two finish, set their sights on repeating their success in front of a supportive home crowd.

Over in the USA, the Laguna Seca race marks the season’s fourth IMSA event, where BMW M Team RLL seeks its first podium. The circuit’s demanding turns test drivers Philipp Eng, Jesse Krohn, Connor De Phillippi, and Nick Yelloly as they push for top results. Additionally, Turner Motorsport celebrates its 557th race, honouring its long-standing partnership with BMW by racing the #557 BMW M4 GT3.

Both race venues promise excitement, with the race at the Spa-Francorchamps starting on Saturday at 13:00 CEST and Laguna Seca’s on Sunday at 12:10 local time. Fans anticipate strategic races where BMW aims to capitalize on recent momentum and secure leading positions in both championships.
