Just a few days after the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the next classic race is approaching this coming weekend: the 24 Hours Nürburgring. Six BMW M6 GT3s are racing in the top SP9 class and numerous BMW works drivers are competing on the Nordschleife. The aim is to battle for the 20th BMW overall win in the ‘Green Hell’. A total of 45 BMW race cars have been registered for the 24-hour race – including the current BMW M4 GT4 and BMW M240i Racing customer racing cars and many other BMW models competing for privateer teams from all around the world. On Thursday, the event programme includes a tribute to Charly Lamm from the BMW M Motorsport family, following his death at the start of the year.
