The BMW Z4 GT3 will be the third car to be part of iRacing’s GT3 Challenge Series, joining the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 and RUF RT12R Track cars. The car is powered by a 4.4L V8 which generates around 480 horsepower (500 without a restrictor), and weighs around 2600 pounds. The car is also known for having some awesome sounds, which may make this car a favorite among racers who enjoy a strong engine note!

The Circuit of the Americas, also known as COTA, is the first purpose built American circuit for Formula One racing. The 3.427-mile circuit has also hosted MotoGP, the Australian V8 Supercar Series, as well as the World Touring Car Championship. The track features turns modeled after other famous circuits, such as Interlagos’ “Senna S” and Silverstone’s “Maggotts-Becketts-Chapel” sequence. The first USGP at the circuit was held in 2012.

These two new additions to iRacing will likely come next month, and will make for some exciting racing, especially in the GT3 series! Which car would you race in the GT3 series? Let us know in the comments below!
