BMW M4 GT4 Coming To iRacing
Via their social media channels, iRacing and Turner Motorsport have confirmed that the BMW M4 GT4 will be coming to its popular online racing service. iRacing did not yet confirm a release schedule.
The BMW M4 GT4 will become the latest sports car to make its debut in iRacing when it debuts on the service later this year. iRacing was on hand in the Turner Motorsport shop earlier this week scanning the car in order to prepare it for a 2020 release.
The BMW M4 GT4 campaigns in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge in the United States, as well as a number of other sports car series around the world. It made its debut in the hands of customer teams in 2018. That same year, the Professional MotorSport World Expo Awards nominated it for its Race Car of the Year award.
Last season, the car won the GT4 class of the Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia and 24H Series. It also earned the 2019 team title in ADAC GT4 Germany. The car also gained additional fame in the movie The Art of Racing in the Rain as the car raced by protagonist Denny Swift, portrayed by actor Milo Ventimiglia.
On iRacing, the M4 GT4 will join the M8 GTE and Z4 GT3 as BMW’s sports car offerings.
Turner Motorsport Quote:
So, an exciting day yesterday here at the shop. The folks from iRacing came by to take detailed 3D measurements of our M4 GT4 that was used in the movie, The Art Of Racing In The Rain, to become part of their stable of race car choices in their iRacing Racing Video Simulator!
We have one of their simulators here at the shop, and the game is so realistic that many professional race drivers use it to become more familiar with a particular car and/or track, or just to keep their skills honed in the off season. We also have some very talented customers that stop by and really show off their iRacing skills!
Looking forward to “getting behind the wheel” and going for a spirited drive at Lime Rock Park, or perhaps on the Nurburgring!
