2015 BMW M4 to pace Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen

Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (June 22, 2015) – The 2015 BMW M4 will serve as the official safety car of the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, leading the field to green at Watkins Glen International on Sunday, June 28, 2015.

The M4 is the newest addition to BMW’s line of M performance coupes, and it lives up to the legends that preceded it. Power comes from a 425-hp twin-turbo inline six-cylinder, mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual clutch transmission with paddle shifters and rear-wheel drive. In a mission to shave weight, many of the M4’s components are made of carbon fiber – including the driveshaft.

“BMW of North America is delighted to share our 40th anniversary celebration with friends and fans at Watkins Glen International,” said Victor Leleu, BMWNA Motorsport Marketing Manager. “For four decades, The Glen has set the stage for many of our professional and privateer racing successes and we are pleased to continue our association with the track this year by presenting the 2016 BMW M4 as Pace Car for the Sahlen’s Six Hours weekend.”

The Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, set to go green at 10:10 a.m. on Sunday, is one of four stops on the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup circuit, a championship within the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season.

The M4 will also pace Saturday’s Continental Tire 150, featuring the Street Tuner and Grand Sport classes of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.

“We’re thrilled to have BMW supplying the official pace car of the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen,” said Michael Printup, WGI President. “The M4 is a beautiful vehicle, and it’s going to lead a diverse and talented field to the green at Watkins Glen International.”
