Reactions to a race:


Alexander Sims (ROWE Racing, 6th place):
“Sixth place is a plain result. Of course, we would have favourite to have
cumulative a starting place for a tip 30 subordinate here already, but
now we have to do that in 4 weeks. we would consider that we will be OK
to do it. We schooled a few things during a competition that will assistance us
with a 24-hour race. The tyres seemed to start operative a bit better
during a race, that was a categorical disproportion to subordinate and why
a racing speed was better. All in all, we am confident with the
gift race.”

Jens Klingmann (Schubert Motorsport, 7th
“The gift competition is always a vital dress
operation for a 24-hour competition during a Nürburgring. That is how we
approached it. It was critical to get to know a new tyres better
and to ideal a inner processes as a team. This was a first
time this deteriorate that we were competing with all a drivers.
Coordinating how we work together can make a disproportion in such a
parsimonious field. In general, we have a feeling that a turn of
opening has turn even aloft so we are gratified with seventh place.”

Martin Tomczyk (BMW Team Schnitzer, 12th place):
“To start with, we are really happy that we were already able
to secure a blue light for a tip 30 subordinate during a 24-hour
race, in qualifying. This means that we can proceed things in a more
loose demeanour and combine on critical preparations. However, we
also beheld that a times were all really tighten together in
qualifying. It’s going to be really sparkling in a bit some-more than four
weeks. We had a teenager occurrence during a array stop in today’s race,
that cost us a improved position though detached from that, we came through
it but any problems.”
