“We are also really looking forward to the races at the ‘Green Hell’ already,” said Schnitzer. “The Nürburgring-Nordschleife is closely linked with BMW Team Schnitzer history and it goes without saying that we would like to expand on our success record there.”

“We are delighted to be able to build on BMW Team Schnitzer’s experience in the upcoming racetrack development and testing of our new flagship GT car, the BMW M4 GT3,” said BMW Group motorsport director Jens Marquardt. “As part of the project, the team will oversee the test drives with the new racecar and will provide valuable feedback for the further development steps.
