Munich. BMW Team Schnitzer can demeanour behind on an impressive
story during a Nürburgring 24 Hours (GER). Team principal Charly
Lamm’s (GER) organisation has won a continuation classical in a Eifel
Mountains 5 times in a past. To symbol a team’s lapse to the
“Green Hell” this season, a series 43 BMW M6 GT3 will competition a
special, ancestral design.

 

BMW Team Schnitzer wrote a initial section of a stately story at
a Nürburgring 24 Hours behind in 1989. The group from Freilassing (GER)
claimed a initial altogether feat during a continuation classical on the
Nordschleife in a same year as it won a lass DTM title. After
143 laps of racing, contingent DTM champion Roberto Ravaglia, Emanuele
Pirro (both ITA) and Fabien Giroix (FRA) crossed a finish line first
in a iconic BMW M3 E30. In memory of this success BMW Team Schnitzer
will lapse to a Eifel lane in 2017 with one of a dual BMW M6 GT3s
sporting a same ancestral pattern as a winning automobile from 1989.

This is a quite special honour for Charly Lamm, who was team
principal when BMW Team Schnitzer claimed a initial vital Nordschleife
success – a purpose he still occupies today: “BMW Motorsport has a big
tradition in engine racing, and we have been advantageous to work together
for many decades. The ancestral clothing on a BMW M6 GT3 is a nice
throw-back to a initial feat – one we are unequivocally unapproachable of. The
stripes in a classical BMW Motorsport colours, in particular, elicit a
lot of memories among a many BMW fans in a Eifel segment and give
us additional proclivity to do all in a energy to get a good result
on a lapse to a Nordschleife.”

Lamm still has lustful memories of that initial feat in 1989: “We were
competing in both a DTM and a 24-hour competition on a same weekend.
Our drivers did a ideal job, as did a whole team. It was a
illusory competition and a unequivocally romantic knowledge for a whole team.”

Just dual years later, BMW Team Schnitzer combined a second success. In
1991, Armin Hahne, Joachim Winkelhock (both GER) and Kris Nissen (DEN)
were winning – again during a circle of a BMW M3 E30, that took
altogether feat in a 4 uninterrupted years from 1989 to 1992. The
automobile stays by distant a many successful furloughed automobile ever fielded by BMW
Motorsport. It done a DTM entrance in 1987 and propelled Eric outpost de
Poele (BEL) to a pretension during a initial attempt. Ravaglia was also
crowned universe furloughed automobile champion with a BMW M3 E30 in a same
year. In total, a automobile has 41 DTM competition wins to a name.

BMW Team Schnitzer claimed altogether feat during a Nürburgring 24
Hours on a serve 3 occasions: in 2004 and 2005 with a BMW M3
GTR and many recently with a BMW M3 GT2 in 2010. In 2017, a team
lines adult with dual BMW M6 GT3s and top-class drivers. Reigning DTM
champion Marco Wittmann (GER) will be assimilated by associate DTM drivers
Augusto Farfus (BRA) and Tom Blomqvist (GBR). Also in movement will be
BMW works drivers Martin Tomczyk (GER) and António Félix da Costa
(POR), as good as dual newcomers to a BMW fold, Timo Scheider (GER)
and Alex Lynn (GBR).

Farfus, Félix da Costa, Scheider and Lynn will share a driving
duties in a automobile with a ancestral livery. Fans will get their first
glance of this unequivocally special BMW M6 GT3 in movement this weekend, during the
subordinate competition for a Nürburgring 24 Hours. The 45th
