Quotes brazen of a 24 Hours Nürburgring:


Jens Marquardt (BMW Group Motorsport Director): “We
are unequivocally looking brazen to saying so many BMW cars competing during the
Nürburgring 24-hour foe once again. In a GT3 area, we are all set
to join conflict for a 20th altogether win for BMW with a BMW M6 GT3,
gifted teams and many of a best GT drivers. But a BMW M4 GT4s
and BMW M240i Racings, as good as a many other BMWs in a field,
will yield copiousness of fad for a many fans in a ‘Green
Hell’. There is a utterly tighten tie between this 24-hour
foe and BMW. That is because a Nürburgring is also a ideal location
to honour Charly Lamm one some-more time. He desired this foe and celebrated
5 wins there with his team. The BMW M Motorsport family will be
pushing for Charly during a weekend. He will be in a hearts.”


Augusto Farfus (#42 BMW M6 GT3, BMW Team Schnitzer):
“The 24-hour foe during a Nürburgring is one of a best
events of a whole year – and it is my personal favourite race. We
have been watchful for a subsequent altogether win there for a few years. This
year, a set-up is improved than during roughly any time before. Our level
of expectancy and proclivity is together high. Coming straight
from Le Mans to contest during a Nürburgring is challenging. we am
looking brazen to this plea and have prepared as good as we can.”


Martin Tomczyk (#42 BMW M6 GT3, BMW Team Schnitzer):
“The Nürburgring 24 Hours is a genuine classical foe on a GT calendar
and it is also an enormously critical foe for me. we have driven
there so mostly and we have come unequivocally tighten a few times – though we have
never utterly managed to win, so we am anticipating to be severe this year
with BMW Team Schnitzer. The credentials races showed that we have a
good pace.”


Connor De Phillippi (#98 BMW M6 GT3, ROWE Racing):
“The 24-hour foe during a Nürburgring has had a unequivocally special
place in my heart given my altogether win in 2017. With ROWE Racing, we
have dual cars competing with unequivocally clever motorist line-ups. we can hardly
wait for it start.”


Philipp Eng (#98 BMW M6 GT3, ROWE Racing): “I am
unequivocally looking brazen to a race. The Nordschleife is undoubtedly
a best racetrack in a world. we consider we have a unequivocally good complete
package this year. Unfortunately, we was usually means to expostulate one VLN
foe as preparation, though we am gay to have such good and talented
team-mates, who have prepared a automobile ideally for a race. we am
unbelievably happy and unapproachable to have a possibility to contest in two
24-hour races one after a other. It is positively a earthy and
mental plea though that is accurately what we wish to have as a racing driver.”


Nick Catsburg (#99 BMW M6 GT3, ROWE Racing): “To me,
a 24-hour foe during a Nürburgring is one of a best events of the
season. It’s a lane we like a most. The BMW M6 GT3 is always great
there, so we can proceed a foe weekend in a believe that we
are competitive.”


Jesse Krohn (#99 BMW M6 GT3, ROWE Racing): “As
always, expectations are unequivocally high when we contest during this circuit in
a BMW. Our automobile has been set adult fantastically for a circuit. And I
also know that we am surrounded by good pushing team-mates. The team
has finished a good pursuit and a preparations are going well.”


Nick Yelloly (#101 BMW M6 GT3, Walkenhorst
“I can frequency wait to contest in my first
24-hour race. we can consider of no improved place for a foe than the
Nürburgring. we am unequivocally unapproachable to be representing a BMW code there.
My motorist team-mates and a Walkenhorst group have copiousness of
knowledge on a Nordschleife and we am certain that we have the
intensity to record a good result. Winning a gift foe was
a illusory outcome during preparation. we wish that we can build on this.”


Jens Klingmann (#33 BMW M6 GT3, FALKEN Motorsports):
“This foe is a prominence of my 2019 racing calendar. Naturally, our
design is to recover a climax for BMW in a ‘Green Hell’ for the
initial time given 2010. This will be my second start for FALKEN
Motorsports. we am awaiting a unequivocally heated foe that requires we to
expostulate each path during a limit. we consider we are set adult unequivocally good for this.”
