Munich. With a initial European rounds of a FIA World
Endurance Championship (WEC) Super Season complete, BMW Team MTEK is
creation a 9,500 kilometre tour to a Fuji International
Speedway in Japan for a “Six Hours of Fuji”, a initial of two
rounds in Asia.

Catsburg (NED), while António Félix Da Costa (POR) and Tom Blomqvist
(GBR) will commander a #82 machine, with Blomqvist station in for
Augusto Farfus (BRA) while he fulfils his DTM duties. BMW Team MTEK
Team Principal Ernest Knoors (NED) is intensely happy with the
swell done by a group so distant this year and believes that if they
continue where they left-off during a prior turn during Silverstone
(GBR) in August, they have a good possibility of success during Fuji next
weekend (14th October).

 

Comments brazen of a Six Hours of Fuji:

 

Ernest Knoors (Team Principal, BMW Team MTEK):

“Everyone in a group is vehement streamer to Fuji, not only because
a fans always yield a illusory atmosphere, though since we feel
like we are in a good position. The group was nearby ideal at
Silverstone and I’m unequivocally unapproachable of that. We had a integrate of reliability
issues that cost us a formula we deserved though we’ve worked tough and
trust a good outcome is ours to take.”

 

Martin Tomczyk (#81 BMW M8 GTE):

“I’m unequivocally vehement to be streamer to a Six Hours of Fuji. Again,
for me, it is a new lane though we gathering it in a simulator and loved
a layout. we generally enjoyed a initial partial with a quick
corners, that should fit a BMW M8 GTE. The final zone will be
some-more wily for us but, overall, it should be good.”

 

Nick Catsburg (#81 BMW M8 GTE):

“It will be my initial time during a Fuji International Speedway but,
from looking during it, we should be clever here. It would be good to
measure a initial WEC lectern as that would put us in a good position as
we transport to a events serve afield.”

 

António Félix da Costa (#82 BMW M8 GTE):

“We’ve schooled so most about a automobile so I’m looking brazen to seeing
what we can do during Fuji. It’s my initial time there though we consider a BMW
M8 GTE will be competitive. Although I’ll skip Augusto, it’s good to
have Tom behind in a automobile with me. He did an insanely good pursuit during Spa
and he’s always fun to share with – we pull any other a lot.”

 

Tom Blomqvist (#82 BMW M8 GTE):

“First and foremost, I’m only vehement to get behind behind a circle of
a BMW M8 GTE. Looking during a weekend specifically, we consider we have a
possibility to measure a best outcome in a WEC so far. we suffer a track
and I’m anticipating it will fit a characteristics a small some-more than
prior events. we also adore Japan but, during this time of year, we can
never count on good continue so that has a intensity to brew things up!”
