This is confirmed by BMW’s efforts on updating their Z4 GT3 racer for the arduous 2011 season.

Even though this version of the BMW Z4 GT3 racer is a GT customer sports car, the company didn’t let it age for a lot more than one year.

The previous version had its launch sometime in March of 2010 and here we are in the first week of April.

Another dramatic performance improvement should come from the gearbox as it is the same sequential situation, only there’s paddle shifts involved this time, making the driver lose less time going through the ratios.
