By

BMW drivers Maxime Martin and Nicky Catsburg will will race for the factory Rowe squad in the Spa 24 Hours later this month.

DTM driver Martin and Catsburg, who was contracted by BMW after winning last year’s 24 Hours at Spa, have been confirmed along with fellow factory driver Dirk Werner in the two-car team of Rowe Racing BMW M6 GT3s for the Blancpain GT Series round on July 30-31

Martin will renew the partnership with team regulars Alexander Sims and Philipp Eng that yielded fourth position in the Silverstone round of the BGTS Endurance Cup event in May.

Catsburg and Werner, who have also raced irregularly for Rowe in the BGTS so far this season, will share the second car with Stef Dusseldorp.

BMW Motorsport boss Jens Marquardt said: “Rowe Racing is competing with six fast and experienced drivers: we are really looking forward to this challenge in the Ardennes.”

Another DTM pilot, Martin Tomczyk, who has been part of BMW’s Nurburgring 24 Hours line-up for the past four years, will make his debut in the Spa enduro at the wheel of a pro-am class M6 for Roberto Ravaglia’s BMW Team Italia.
