Munich. The 24-hour race at the Nürburgring (GER) will be held for the 45thtime in 2017 – and BMW Motorsport has rarely been so well placed in quality and quantity as in this season. A total of more than 40 BMW race cars are registered for the 24-hour race. The 13 BMW M235i #racing makes up the largest contingent. This is the entry-level model in the customer #racing product range of BMW Motosport. Nine BMW M6 GT3 will contest the SP9 class, all looking to get a top result in the overall standings at this endurance classic. The new BMW M4 GT4 will be on the starting grid as the media car.
BMW has celebrated 19 overall wins at the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife since 1970, eight of which were one-two results. They have racked up a total of 177 class wins – more than any other brand. There have been 1,580 BMW starts at the 24-hour race between 1970 and 2016. In comparison, Opel in second place has fewer than half as many starts. The last win was in 2010, with the BMW M3 GT of BMW Team Schnitzer and the drivers Augusto Farfus (BRA), Jörg Müller (GER), Pedro Lamy (POR) and Uwe Alzen (GER).
