Race two of this season’s VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring felt the full force of this weekend’s late onset of winter in Germany. Heavy snowfall and temperatures around freezing point caused the race to be cancelled just two laps in. The #42 BMW Team Schnitzer BMW M6 GT3, with Martin Tomczyk at the wheel, was leading at that point. Tomczyk was sharing the car with BMW works drivers Timo Scheider and Sheldon van der Linde, who gained his first experience at the wheel of the BMW M6 GT3 during Friday’s test and qualifying on Saturday morning. In qualifying, when it was still dry, BMW works driver Jens Klingmann and Peter Dumbreck had secured second place on the front row of the grid in the FALKEN Motorsports BMW M6 GT3. In total, roughly 70 BMW cars were registered for the 44th DMV 4-Hour Race. These included more than 20 BMW M240i Racings in the CUP5 class, as well as six BMW M4 GT4s in the SP10 class and five BMW M6 GT3s in the SP9 class.
