Podium in the “Green Hell”: Nick Catsburg, David Pittard and Jody Fannin, at the wheel of the #34 Walkenhorst Motorsport BMW M6 GT3, finished third to earn a spot on the podium at the 59th Reinoldus-Langstreckenrennen, which forms round seven of this season’s VLN Endurance Championship at the Nürburgring. In unsettled conditions and typical Eifel weather, Peter Dumbreck and Stef Dusseldorp followed them over the finish line in fourth place in the #3 BMW M6 GT3, which was run by Falken Motorsports. Rudi Adams, Hunter Abbott and Jordan Tresson came home eighth in the second Walkenhorst Motorsport car, the #35 BMW M6 GT3. This was good enough to earn them third place in the SP9 Pro-Am class. There was also plenty of cause for celebration in the other classes at the end of the four-hour race on the iconic Nürburgring-Nordschleife. In total, six BMW cars came out on top in their various categories. In the SP10 class, Heiko Eichenberg and BMW Motorsport Junior Erik Johansson, in the #181 BMW M4 GT4 run by the AVIA Sorg Rennsport team, claimed a narrow victory in a thrilling finish. In the CUP5 class, Yannick Fübrich and David Griessner took victory in the #650 BMW M240i Racing Cup of Pixum Adrenalin Motorsport. That team was also victorious in the V4 class, with reigning VLN champions Danny Brink, Christopher Rink and Philipp Leisen taking victory in the #1 BMW 325i. In the VT2 class, the top step of the podium was occupied by Marcel Manheller and Carsten Knechtges, who triumphed in the #510 Manheller Racing BMW F30. Another victory went to the #549 BMW 318iS in the V2 class.
