(2005 - 2007)

The Italian team, BMS Scuderia Italia were the first of the full works supported independent teams to run the DBR9, signing their three year contract with AMR in 2005 to run a pair of cars in the FIA GT championship. Their first outing with the DBR9 was at the Silverstone round of the FIA GT in May 2006. Whilst they generally speaking have two cars running in the FIA GT series, they have I believe, access to at least three cars. I spotted in 2006, DBR9/7, identified by red stripes on the nose and around the grille, whilst DBR9/9 had these in orange but they gave been changed to yellow for the 2007 season. Then at the Silverstone round if the FIA GT championship in 2007, BMS used DBR9/9 and DBR9/6 with the red markings.

Best results during 2006 were 3rd places at Silverstone (Fabrizio Gollin, Fabio Babini), Brno (Fabrizio Gollin, Fabio Babini) and Budapest (Fabio Babini, Matteo Malucelli). Sadly, DBR9/9 was one of the first cars to retire at Le Mans in 2006 after crashing very heavily. In the FIA GT Championship in 2006, BMS Scuderia Italia achieved 2nd overall behind the Vitaphone Maserati MC12

For 2007, as well as competing in the FIA GT series, car 100 achieved 11th overall and 6th in class in the 24 Heures du Mans. In the FIA GT championship in 2007, BMS Scuderia Italia achieved 6th overall.

After two years of success with the DBR9, BMS Scuderia Italia have moved on to Ferrari GT2 cars. An associate team, Brixia Racing are running a trio of DBRS9’s in the European GT3 series.
