Schubert Motorsport set out to conquer the Nordschleife with the M2 Competition
Nordschleife. The 65th ADAC Westfalenfahrt will be the special occasion for the debut
of the M2 Competition developed by Schubert Motorsport. Driven by Christopher Dreyspring and Christer Jöns, it will be competing in the SP8T class.
The Oschersleben-based outfit decided to return to its roots for this season. The M2 Competition was built from the body shell up with various components of the M4 GT4. The racing car made its maiden appearance in the VLN test and set-up sessions in mid-March and was put through its paces in further tests at Motorsport Arena Oschersleben. After completing numerous laps without major problems or complications, the team expressed themselves well satisfied.
The 2019 season for Schubert starts with the first VLN endurance race. They will also be on the grid for the VLN 2 and 3 races in preparation for the standout event of the year – the ADAC TOTAL 24-hour race at the Nürburgring on the weekend of 20th - 23rd June.
It’s going to be a special season for Schubert Motorsport as they celebrate their 20th anniversary. Numerous class victories and an overall victory in the 2005 VLN as well as four Top Ten finishes and a pole position in the prestigious 24-hour race at the Nürburgring are just a few of the memorable moments from their 20-year track record. They have many other trophies in their cabinet, including the 2015 ADAC GT Masters team championship. With the launch of the M2 Competition, 2019 opens another chapter in the history of the team.
Team boss Torsten Schubert: “After the test runs on the Nordschleife and in Oschersleben, we are feeling very optimistic. We encountered hardly any complications, and everything went very smoothly, especially considering that the car was quite late in being finished. We saw our 20th anniversary as a great opportunity to return to our core competence. We wanted to create an entry model for the Nordschleife, which we have succeeded in doing with the M2 Competition. For us, the first VLN races are all about preparing ourselves perfectly for the 24-hour race and developing the optimum setup for different conditions. In Christer and Christopher, we have found a strong driver line-up for the season opener, whose feedback will certainly be supportive and help us make further progress.”
