Even though this year’s 24-hour Nurburgring race will take place on 21st/22nd June, the BMW Motorsport people are already working on it, looking to bring yet another trophy to Munich.
This year, BMW works driver Dirk Werner will be joined by experienced and multiple winners of the coveted trophy like Claudia Hurtgen, Jorg and Dirk Muller, Uwe Alzen and Dirk Adorf. There are 5 victories between the Muller brothers and Uwe Alzen alone on the Green Hell.

Lucas Luhr will also enter the competition behind the steering wheel of a BMW Z4 GT3 alongside Jens Klingmann, Alexander Sims, Dominik Baumann and 2 other DTM drivers that will be announced at a later date.

“We are already looking forward to the Nürburgring 24 Hours. This classic race plays an important role in the history of BMW Motorsport, which is why it is always a very special event for us,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt.

“After finishing runners-up in 2013, we have our sights set on a return to the podium and are determined to show how competitive the BMW Z4 GT3 is on the endurance circuit. The 24-hour race at the Nürburgring is a law unto itself, pushing both man and machine to the very limit. However, our drivers know exactly what to expect. With them, we are well positioned to successfully overcome the challenge of the ‘Green Hell’,” added Marquardt.
