Munich. After BMW celebrated a 20th overall victory at the 24h Nürburgring (GER) last year, attention is now fully focused on the next edition of the classic endurance race. The 49th edition of the ‘Eifel Marathon’ will take place on 5th/6th June 2021. The six-hour qualifying race will be held already this coming Sunday. The BMW teams ROWE Racing, Schubert Motorsport and Walkenhorst Motorsport, accompanied by the BMW Junior Team, will once again ensure a strong BMW M6 GT3 presence on the grid this year. Numerous BMW works drivers will also be in action again.

 

ROWE Racing celebrated overall victory with the #99 BMW M6 GT3 in 2020. Nick Catsburg (NED) and Nick Yelloly (GBR) were part of that driver line-up and will be back with the team this year, joined now by their BMW works team-mates John Edwards (USA) and Philipp Eng (AUT). The BMW M6 GT3 formerly known as #99 will compete as #1. BMW works drivers Connor De Phillippi (USA), Martin Tomczyk (GER), Sheldon van der Linde (RSA) and Marco Wittmann (GER) will be competing in the ROWE Racing #98 BMW M6 GT3.

 

The Schubert Motorsport team will also be taking on the challenges of the 24-hour race on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 2021. In the #20 BMW M6 GT3 for the team, BMW works drivers Jesse Krohn (FIN) and Jens Klingmann (GER) will be sharing driving duties with Stef Dusseldorp (NED) and Alexander Sims (GBR). Walkenhorst Motorsport is one of the most renowned teams on the Nordschleife. The #100 Walkenhorst BMW M6 GT3 will be driven by Henry Walkenhorst, Friedrich von Bohlen, Jörg Breuer and Andreas Ziegler (all GER). Christian Krognes (NOR), David Pittard (GBR) and Ben Tuck (GBR) will share duties in the #101 car and Mario von Bohlen (GER), Sami-Matti Trogen (FIN), Jörg Müller (GER) and Jakub Giermaziak (POL) will be racing for the team in the #102 BMW M6 GT3.

 

The BMW Junior Team will be taking its next step at this year’s 24h Nürburgring. Dan Harper (GBR), Max Hesse (GER) and Neil Verhagen (USA) made a successful 24-hour debut on the Nordschleife in 2020. In the BMW M4 GT4, they celebrated victory in the SP8T class and finished 19th, as the best-placed team outside of the GT3 field. The three BMW Juniors will be racing in the BMW M6 GT3 for the first time at this year’s endurance classic. Their line-up will be strengthened and supported by BMW works driver Augusto Farfus (BRA). The BMW Team RMG will be in charge of the car for this race.

 

Strong partners on the Nordschleife.

Strong, long-term partners will also be on board at the 49th edition of the 24h Nürburgring in 2021. These include Shell, Akrapovič, H&R, BMW M Performance Parts, soft trim, Puma, Riemensperger, CATL, iQOO and RoboMarkets.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
