Nerea Martí set to make GT4 debut in Spanish GT Championship
Nerea Martí is set to make her GT4 debut at Navarra, as the F1 Academy driver continues her double-program with BMW Spain Motorsport in the Spanish GT Championship.
Alongside her F1 Academy campaign, Spanish driver Nerea Martí will make her debut in the Spanish GT Championship with BMW Spain Motorsport, stepping up to GT4 machinery.
Martí made her debut in closed-cockpit cars in 2022, when she contested the GT Winter Series and the GT-CER (Spanish Endurance Championship) as part of the first factory-effort for BMW Spain, sharing the BMW M2 CS Racing with José Manuel de los Milagros.
The duo battled for the overall title in GT Winter Series, then claimed multiple race wins and finished on the class podium in every round of the Spanish Endurance Championship, ultimately sealing the class title – at her debut season in touring cars.
The Valencian will now return for a six-event calendar with BMW Spain Motorsport – this year making her GT4 debut: she will in fact share the new BMW M4 GT4 with teammate de los Milagros.
“I am really looking forward to the first race", Nerea said. "We have a new car and it's in a new category so it's going to be quite a challenge for the team because we don't know the car and the others do. Of course, just like last year, our objective is to be at the top in all the races and keep BMW at the top.”
Each weekend will feature two practice sessions, a qualifying and two 48 minute + 1 lap races, with the exception of the Aragon and Barcelona meetings, that will have one 2-hour races.
The Navarra circuit will host the first race meeting this weekend, on April 1-2. The rounds of the Spanish GT Championship will be streamed live on the V Line Org youtube channel.
