Farfus to replace Monteiro


Tiago Monteiro will have to postpone his debut in the International GT Open. According to a release of BMW Team Teo Martín, the Portuguese star is suffering from neck pains after the WTCC race on the Nordschleife and preferred to withdraw from the Ricard race.

Along Lourenço Beirão on the BMW M6 #51, though, there will be another top driver: Brazil’s Augusto Farfus, the 33-year-old well-know WTCC, DTM and GT star who is a BMW works driver.
