24-hour race at the Nürburgring.

BMW M Motorsport<br>– 24h Nürburgring.24-hour race at the Nürburgring.

On 26th/27th September, the Nürburgring 24 Hours celebrates its 50th anniversary. Half a century ago, BMW won the inaugural race to claim the first of its 19 overall victories on the Nordschleife. With this in mind, it will also be a special 50th anniversary for BMW. BMW M Motorsport and the BMW M Customer Racing teams head to this special race with a contingent that is as strong as it is diverse – from battling for overall victory with the BMW M6 GT3, to the BMW Junior Team in the BMW M4 GT4 and the BMW M2 CS Racing media car, not to mention the many customer teams who are set to take on the challenge of the ‘Green Hell’ in a wide range of BMW cars. With a total of 27 cars, BMW makes up more than a quarter of the field at the 50th anniversary edition of the endurance classic. The goal is to continue the successful history of BMW in the Eifel Mountains. No other manufacturer has claimed as many victories in the ‘Green Hell’ as BMW, which currently has 19 triumphs – eight of them one-twos – to its name at the marathon on the toughest circuit in the world. At over 20 kilometres in length, the circuit demands skill, courage and a cool head at all times. However, it is not only the spectacular layout that makes this marathon one of the biggest challenges the world of GT racing has to offer. The sheer volume of cars out on the track and the unpredictable Eifel weather also add to the challenge.

SUMMARY 2019 – FAMILY REUNION AT THE RING.

45 BMW models represented at the spectacle at the Nürburgring.

2019 saw the Nürburgring-Nordschleife host the 24-hour race for the 47th time. No other brand has got as many wins at the “Green Hell” to date as BMW. The record stands at 19 victories – eight of which were one-two wins. The Nordschleife is the toughest track in the world. Which is precisely why BMW subjects every new production vehicle to the ultimate endurance test there. The track over 20 kilometres in length demands skills, courage and a cool head at all times from the drivers. But it is not only the absurd layout that makes the marathon race one of the greatest challenges that GT racing has to offer. The many cars that move around the narrow track increase the challenge, as does the unpredictable weather in the Eifel region. It is not uncommon for rain and fog to make things difficult for the teams and drivers. For motorsport fans, the classic in the Eifel region is a real magnet. Around 230,000 spectators from around the world turned the 2019 race into an enormous party.
