The two shared the driving duties in the new Schubert Motorsport BMW M4 GT4 for the two races on Saturday and Sunday – and with great success. Marschall and Visser won the opening race. Marschall, who had taken over from Visser at around the halfway point of the race, crossed the finish line 0.941 seconds ahead of the second-placed car. The duo then finished 15th in a rain-dominated second race.
“Even we did not really expect to win our first real competitive race with the new BMW M4 GT4,” said Marschall. “However, the advantage of this car is that you can very quickly get up to speed and start clocking good lap times, even with little experience. Beitske and I both managed to do that in the two qualifying sessions and in the opening race. In the rain on Sunday, we simply did not have enough experience compared to the opposition. That by no means takes the shine off what has been a successful weekend. We are very happy.”
As of next season, customer teams will be able to contest races around the world with the BMW M4 GT4. Max Koebolt and Ricardo van der Ende also claimed a podium in Barcelona, finishing third in the Ekris M4 GT4 in Saturday’s race.
