Nürburgring. Jesse Krohn (FIN) set the fastest lap of all BMW drivers during the shoot-out for pole position at the Nürburgring 24 Hours (GER).

Reactions to the top-30 shoot-out at the Nürburgring:


Jesse Krohn (#99 BMW M6 GT3, ROWE Racing, grid position: 10 ):

“It was an alright session and I’m happy with my lap but I’m also surprised with the qualifying pace. I gave it my ‘all’ but, on one-lap pace, we didn’t quite have it. The team did a great job and the car felt mega, so hopefully we can have a good race and stay out of trouble.”


John Edwards (#98 BMW M6 GT3, ROWE Racing, grid position: 14):

“The BMW M6 GT3 felt really great but I’m very surprised by the lap times of the other manufacturers – they are so quick. It’s a 24 hour race so starting places aren’t too important – the important thing is that the car feels good.”


Augusto Farfus (#102 Shell Helix BMW M6 GT3, grid position: 18 ):

“It was a clean qualifying and we did a good job. Of course, the race is long but we have a very good line-up and a very good team so I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”


Jens Klingmann (#33 BMW M6 GT3, Falken Motorsports, grid position: 21):

“We qualified P21, which doesn’t sound great but that doesn’t tell the full story. Our car is great on tyres so the last lap of our stint is almost as quick as our first lap – this means there is no peak for qualifying but that we have a fantastic long distance race set-up.”
