Driving their number 25 BMW Z4 GT3 car, the two drivers finished on the second place in the aforementioned race on the Green Hell, marking the third podium so far, in four events. The other team, made of Dirk Adorf, Nick Catsburg and Las Leinders, driving the number 26 Z4, came in tenth.

The other Sports Trophy Team, BMW Team Schubert, was rather unlucky and missed out on the podium, despite fighting strong headwinds during the race. The number 20 BMW Z4 GT3, driven by Claudia Hurtgen, Jens Klingmann and Dominik Baumann finished fourth while the number 19 car driven by Alexander Sims, Dirk Werner, Dirk Muller and Lucas Luhr finished 19th due to a punctured tire.

In the BMW M235i Racing Cup, Adrenalin Motorsport claimed the checkered flag in the third event of the season, marking the second win this far for drivers Daniel Zils, Norbert Fischer and Uwe Ebertz.

“We now know our BMW Z4 GT3 so well and enjoyed such a smooth preparation that we can look ahead to the highlight of the season in five weeks with a good feeling. I am heading to Japan for another race before then, but will then be counting down the days to the Nürburgring 24 Hours,” said Jorg Muller, 2nd place, Number 25 BMW Z4 GT3, BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS.

The 24-hour race at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife will take place on June 21st/22nd and it will be celebrated by BMW enthusiasts all over the world at the M Festival where plenty of surprises should await.
