For BMW M Motorsport in this year’s 24-hour race at the Nurburgring (Germany) is dominated by the 50th anniversary of BMW M. Many events are planned, and the theme of “50 years of BMW M” will be a notable feature on the track. The BMW M Motorsport team Schubert Motorsport will compete with the BMW M4 GT3 with a special anniversary livery to be presented this weekend during the qualifying races at the Nürburgring-North Life.
“The Nurburgring and the 24-hour race there are inextricably linked to the 50-year history of the BMW M,” said Francisco van Mill, CEO of BMW M GmbH. “The fact that the Schubert Motorsport BMW M4 GT3 is starting this race with a special livery in our anniversary year underscores this close connection. The design, which incorporates our traditional BMW M colors in a very modern form, looks fantastic. We look forward to seeing the BMW M4 GT3 in this livery on the Nordschleife ”.
The anniversary livery is reminiscent of the 50 successful years of the BMW M in motorsport and combines tradition with modernity. Classic BMW M colors: blue, red and purple – since the company’s founding in 1972 – have been incorporated into the dynamic, modern design of the modern BMW M Motorsport livery. The number 50, which will glow in the dark thanks to a special foil, and the BMW M logo also refer to the 50th anniversary of the BMW M.
At the wheel of the Schubert Motorsport BMW M4 GT3 in the 24-hour race will be BMW M Motorsport Workers drivers Jesse Crohn (FIN), Jens Klingman (Germany) and Alexander Sims (GBR), as well as Niklas Kruten (Germany). The Endurance Classics on the Nordschleife takes place from 28 to 29 May.
