Átila Abreu will integrate the BMW Team Brazil in the 2015 Blancpain GT Series. He will be the team-mate of Valdeno Brito, aboard the BMW Z4 #77. In the other car of the team (the BMW Z4 #0), Cacá Bueno and Sérgio Jimenez continue their successful partnership of 2014.
After a brief appearance in the Spanish round of the 2013 season, when he raced alongside Sérgio Jimenez, Átila Abreu now returns to the Brazilian team for the 2015 Blancpain GT Series. The 27 year-old is very much looking forward to this new challenge in his career, ten years after his previous European racing experience, when he finished runner-up to a certain Sebastian Vettel in the German Formula BMW. Since then he has been active in the Brazilian Stock Car championship, in which he finished second last year.
Átila Abreu (BMW Team Brazil BMW Z4 #77): “I am absolutely delighted. This is a great opportunity for my career. Stock Car is the most important category in Brazil and the Blancpain GT Series is growing every year, getting more and more attention all over the world. The category has great cars, major manufacturers and I am very proud that I can represent BMW.”
