2014 United SportsCar Championship.
BMW Motorsport Media Information.
Dear Media Representative,
The 2014 season heralds a new era for motorsport in North America. The American Le Mans Series and GRAND-AM Series have merged to form the United SportsCar Championship.
BMW Motorsport can look back on an extremely successful time in the ALMS. We won the inaugural race at Sebring in 1999 with the BMW V12 LMR, and Jörg Müller triumphed in the GT class for the first time in 2001 with the BMW M3 GTR. Together with BMW Team RLL we added a Driver, two Team and two Manufacturer Championships in the GT category to our list of achievements from 2009 onwards. In 2013 we were party to a fantastic debut season for the BMW Z4 GTE, which produced two race wins and ended with second place in the Driver, Team and Manufacturer Championships.
We would obviously now like to follow on from these performances in the USCC. It promises to be a thrilling 2014 season: the race calendar is fantastic and the GTLM field should produce exciting racing – just as it did in the ALMS. We will line up with BMW Team RLL and a strong squad of drivers. I am confident the USCC will thrill racing fans in North America.
