Debut season with the BMW M6 GT3 draws to an end for Schubert Motorsport
Races 13 and 14 of the season brought Schubert Motorsport’s first ADAC GT Masters season with the BMW M6 GT3 to a close this weekend. BMW DTM driver Martin Tomczyk (DE) made his second appearance of the season alongside Jesse Krohn (FI) at the Hockenheimring (DE). The duo finished 12th on Saturday, narrowly missing out on the points. They then had to settle for 15th on Sunday, following a difficult qualifying session.
The record at the end of the development season with BMW’s new GT car was a mixed one for Schubert Motorsport. The best race result was fifth place at the season-opener in Oschersleben. In total, Schubert Motorsport finished in the points on five occasions.
Torsten Schubert (Team Principal Schubert Motorsport): “On the whole, this season did not pan out as we had hoped. We had a few good moments and were strong on certain tracks. When this was the case, however, we were often lacking that little slice of luck you need. Looking ahead to the coming season, we still have plenty of work ahead of us if we want to compete for the title with the BMW M6 GT3 in the future.”
Jesse Krohn: “That was the first season from me and the BMW M6 GT3 in the ADAC GT Masters, and we learned an awful lot over the course of the year. It was not always easy, and unfortunately we did not make it onto the podium. Personally, however, I have improved considerably when it comes to GT sprint races. I feel that was very important, as I only knew the car from endurance racing before this year. I would like to say a big thank you to Schubert Motorsport for the hard work and good job they have done in this extremely high-class field. Congratulations to the winners of this year’s ADAC GT Masters.”
Martin Tomczyk: “We would have liked to have scored some more points for Schubert Motorsport at the end of what has been a difficult season, but unfortunately we came up just short. Jesse and I showed what fighters we are in the race, and made up a few places. However, the overall package was not strong enough to match the pace being set at the front field. Sunday’s race was very eventful and a very exciting finale for the fans. Congratulations to the winners.”
