Schubert Motorsport returns to the Eifel Mountains with the BMW M6 GT3
Schubert Motorsport returns to the Eifel Mountains with the BMW M6 GT3 this weekend. The team from Oschersleben (DE) has already contested several races in the VLN Endurance Championship and the famous 24-hour race at the Nürburgring (DE), and now heads back to the circuit for round five of the 2016 ADAC GT Masters. Unlike at the endurance events, the shorter Grand Prix Circuit will be used instead of the Nordschleife.
The two BMW Motorsport Juniors Jesse Krohn (FI) and Louis Delétraz (CH) will once again alternate at the wheel of the BMW M6 GT3. Schubert Motorsport travels to the Eifel region looking to back up the performance it showed at the last race weekend in Spielberg. The team was challenging for a podium finish in Austria until they fell victim to collisions through no fault of their own in both races and were forced to retire on both occasions.
Races nine and ten of the season start at 13:15 on Saturday and Sunday (both live on Sport1).
Timo Frings (Team Manager): “We travel to the Nürburgring full of confidence. We have already won there this year – albeit on the Nordschleife – and were among the fastest cars in the 24-hour race. That gives us an extra boost, although we will face different challenges in the ADAC GT Masters to those we encounter on the endurance circuit. We are continuing to work on the BMW M6 GT3, and are heading in the right direction. It goes without saying that you also need a bit of luck to have a successful weekend, and we are hoping – unlike in Spielberg – that the results will reflect our performance. The weather is always a key factor in the Eifel region, but the forecast is good for the weekend.”
