The factory-supported outfit received an invite for the Azerbaijani event after securing the 2013 Blancpain Endurance Series teams title. Team regular Nicky Catsburg is expected to drive the solo Marc VDS Z4 with BMW factory driver Maxime Martin, who took victory at round three of the Blancpain season at Paul Ricard for the team alongside Bas Leinders and Yelmer Buurman. Just ten points separated the trio from eventual 2013 Blancpain Pro Cup winner Maximilian Buhk, who secured the title with HTP Motorsport at the 1000km Nürburgring.

The Azberjani GT Series finale will take place on 23-24 November, with Laurens Vanthoor and Stephane Ortelli competing with Belgian Audi Club Team WRT teammates Frank Stippler and Edward Sandstrom for the Pro title.

If you’re still unsure, why not jump on-board with Swedish team regular Richard Göransson as he takes the BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS BMW Z4 GT3 around the fearsome Nordschleife. Just FYI, it’s a bit nippy.
