This weekend, WestCoast Racing’s GT racing programme kicks off. The season opener for the Swedish GT series Swedish Racing League will take place at Anderstorp Raceway and WestCoast Racing are in place with a brand new BMW Z4 GT3.
– It’s finally time for our GT programme this year, says team manager Dick Jönsson Wigroth. We have worked really hard right up until yesterday to prepare the car which has been completely rebuilt and updated this year. This will be our first outing with the car after we have rebuilt it, but we know it is fast and are looking forward to racing it for the first time at Anderstorp.

This weekend the car will be driven by Martin Öhlin and Magnus Öhman who will share the car for the one hour race. Magnus Öhman was one of the WestCoast Racing drivers at the 12 hour race in Hungary last autumn. Martin Öhlin, who put in a strong performance at Ring Knutstorp this past weekend, is now recharging for another race weekend, this time in a new car.
– It’s gone well most of the times I’ve driven a Z4, so I hope it will run smoothly this time too, says Martin who finished fourth overall in the Nürburgring 24 Hours last year. I’m looking forward to a fun weekend in a very cool car. If the car runs as well as the rear wing is big, I’m sure it will work out great, Martin says with a laugh.
