Porsche shuffles IGTC driver lineup as, among other items, Timo Bernhard and Jorg Bergmeister retire from active competition, though will remain with Porsche as ambassadors.

Great to see Matt Campbell promoted but itís a bit odd to see Olsen who is this years IGTC champion get dropped.

Olsen was a junior, im very suprised Porsche wouldnt have promoted him, so I wonder if this was an Olsen move not a Porsche move?

Maybe he got a deal elsewhere he liked more

Not sure about the deal with Olsen either. He and Campbell seemed like the up and comers for Porsche along with Jaminet.

IGCT for Porsche seems like for the factory drivers who are brand new or have been around the block. The ones in the middle which are the drivers in their prime so to speak are with the 911 RSR in IMSA or WEC.

I love it. There, I said it.
I paid nada attention to this event and only just now watched the recorded race (congested) and wow! What a pleasant surprise the track is. The WEC race there next year (2021) should be another highlight as well.

I won't claim the tide is turning but with tracks like this being re-included in major championships bodes well in a racing world polluted with Tilkedromes and parking lots.

BMW (Walkenhorst) commit to full season

Quote:
BMW Motorsport have become the seventh manufacturer to confirm a full-season Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli entry in 2020.

BMW join Audi, Bentley, Honda, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG and reigning champions Porsche on the list of 2020’s confirmed Intercontinental entries.

Walkenhorst Motorsport will field two M6 GT3s at four of the five rounds after logistical difficulties restricted it to a single car at this weekend’s Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.

Augusto Farfus and Chaz Mostert, who won the GTLM class for BMW at Daytona 24 Hours on Sunday, are joined in Australia by Nick Catsburg. Martin Tomczyk, Nick Yelloly and David Pittard will also feature this year once the team’s second car appears at the Total 24 Hours of Spa in July.
