Bruno Spengler and his team mates Jesse Krohn, Jörg Müller and Kuno Wittmer finished 11th for their debut in the Nürburgring 24 Hours, at the wheel of their Schuberth Motorsports BMW M6 GT3 #20.
The pre-qualifying race had already given them the opportunity to reach the Top 30, it was up to them to try for pole position and they qualified 17th on the grid after Jesse Krohn went off-track.
The #20 BMW took a solid start, passing a few cars to secure a place in the top 15. Unfortunately, the early evening saw Spengler limp into the pits following a collision with a Mercedes AMG GT3 who had not respected the speed limits in a slow zone. The team lost precious minutes repairing the car.
The Québécois driver and his team mates got back on track and did not encounter any other problems as they drove through the night. The last hours of the race saw them on the verge of getting into the top 10 and they finished the race in 11th position.

“I have learned so much in my first 24-hour race at the Nürburgring. You cannot compare this classic event with any other 24-hour race. For one thing, I had to get used to the amount of traffic on the Nordschleife as there are so many cars competing. It is a shame that we could not record a better result for the team, as the team performed fantastically after our accident in Top-30 Qualifying and ensured that we had a great car for the race. This weekend was a fantastic experience for me.”
