BMW Team Schnitzer can look back on an impressive history at the Nürburgring 24 Hours. Team principal Charly Lamm’s crew has won the endurance classic in the Eifel Mountains five times in the past. To mark the team’s return to the 'Green Hell' this season, the number 43 BMW M6 GT3 will sport a special livery.
BMW Team Schnitzer wrote the first chapter of its history at the Nürburgring 24 Hours back in 1989. The team from Freilassing claimed its first overall victory at the endurance classic on the Nordschleife in the same year as it won its maiden DTM title. After 143 laps of racing, eventual DTM champion Roberto Ravaglia, Emanuele Pirro and Fabien Giroix crossed the finish line first in the iconic BMW M3 E30. In memory of this success BMW Team Schnitzer will return to the Eifel track next month with one of the two BMW M6 GT3s sporting the same classic livery as the winning car from 1989.
