With Mercedes AMG on the verge of delivering a new GT3 race car for the 2016 season, it was a surprise (to this scribe, at least) to see the announcement that SLS stalwart ROWE Racing is moving to the BMW M6 platform for 2016. The withdrawal of the Marc VDS team apparently provided an opening for a factory favored slot in the BMW stable.
The white and yellow ROWE Mercedes AMG SLS GT3 team usually has run 2 cars and has been consistently competitive in events like the Nurburgring 24 hours. A podium in 2014 is probably not a fair reflection of the team’s strength.
The ROWE Racing colors look quite distinctive on the BMW M6. BMW Motorsport apparently saw what they liked at ROWE and there is a real opportunity for good results in 2016.
This news provides the perfect opportunity for a photo gallery from the past few years of ROWE Racing Mercedes cars at the Nurburgring 24. Enjoy!
