The BMW M4 GT4 has won titles in the GT4 European Series, the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, the VP Racing SportsCar Challenge, the GT4 Asia, and the GT4 America.

I can't wait to watch our teams and drivers strive to top this outstanding record again in 2024.”
BMW M works driver and BMW SIM Racing ambassador Bruno Spengler (CAN) presented the awards, which for the first time also included the recognition of the best participants in the BMW M SIM Trophy, the virtual counterpart to the BMW M Sports Trophy. Those sim racers were honoured who were most successful in virtual BMW M race cars.
