matched to putting a BMW M6 GT3 by a ultimate continuation test
on a many perfectionist racetrack in a world. Furthermore, the
inclusion of some intensely gifted immature drivers gives a driver
line-ups a ideal mix. We are really assured that we can leave our
symbol on a Nordschleife in a centenary year of a BMW Group and
a BMW brand. And not usually with a works-assisted teams, though with
a whole considerable fortuitous of secretly run BMW cars, that will
yield BMW fans during a circuit with copiousness of action. There is
already good expectation forward of a 44th using of this classic
competition in a Eifel Mountains.”
