gifted Nordschleife experts like Richard Westbrook, Jens
Klingmann and Markus Palttala. We are assured that they can play an

Racing in 2017: Catsburg, Sims and Richard Westbrook (GBR). The
remaining 3 BMW works drivers who will competition a 24h Nürburgring
for ROWE Racing also exaggerate copiousness of GT power: Edwards, Krohn and
Tomczyk finish a seven-man motorist line-up.
