    BMW Motorsport wins the 24 hours at the Nürburgring

    A huge congratulations to BMW Motorsport for pulling off a stunning victory. The M3 GT2's ran strong however one was set back due to an accident and the other was trailing the GT3 RS through the early portion of the race.

    It has been 5 years since the last victory for BMW at the ring. Four drivers switched off in the winning car and made their way to the front despite gearbox problems in the critical last few hours of the race.

    The second M3 fought back to seventh place after a crash that had them lose an hour and drop back to 182nd place. Talk about an impressive fight back to the front!

    A duo of privately entered Z4 GT3 race cars managed to finish 4th and 9th as well. Of 198 cars entering the race, 63 were BMW's.

    The Motorsport M3's continue their impressive racing this year from ALMS to the Ring, congratulation to BMW Motorsport for this hard fought victory!

I have never known excitement like I experienced today. After some of our direct rivals fell by the wayside, our victory was also hanging by a thread. At about 12.00 the winning car developed a gearbox problem, resulting in the loss of one gear. Shortly after 13.00 other gears gradually gave up. It was a masterful performance how Jörg Müller and Uwe Alzen brought the car home in first place in this crucial phase. The tension was enormous for all of us, so the relief was all the greater when the car crossed the finish line. I must say a big thank you to every single member of the team. Everyone worked perfectly together. Thanks also to our loyal fans, who have taken us to their hearts after a five-year break and given us such great support.
