BMW factory driver Bruno Spengler has been announced as Ceccato Racing’s third driver for the opening round of the 2021 Italian GT Endurance championship at Enna-Pergusa.

Spengler is set to share the BMW Team Italia’s #7 BMW M6 GT3 with Stefano Comandini and 18-year-old Marius Zug, both of which were behind the wheel of the Bavarian vehicle during the opening round of the Italian GT Sprint series at Monza two weeks ago.

Spengler is no stranger to endurance racing, having been participating in this year’s IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship behind the wheel of a factory-backed BMW Team RLL BMW M8 GTE. His last appearance in Italian GT came last year at Imola where he finished fourth alongside Comandini and Zug. The Canadian has also touring car experience, having won the 2012 DTM championship behind the wheel of a BMW M3 DTM.

The opening round of the 2021 Italian GT Endurance series is set for this weekend from 21-23 May.
