Schubert Motorsport will compete with two BMW M6 GT3s for the first time this year, to coincide with the highlight of the ADAC GT Masters season, the Motorsport Festival at the Lausitzring (DE). Claudia Hürtgen (DE) and Niklas Mackschin (DE) celebrate their return to the "league of supercars" and their debuts in the BMW M6 GT3. Hürtgen and Mackschin shared the cockpit of the Schubert Motorsport BMW Z4 GT3 at the 2015 season finale in Hockenheim (DE).
As usual, car number 20 will be driven by the BMW Motorsport Juniors. Like at the Sachsenring (DE), Jesse Krohn (FI) and Louis Delétraz (CH) will once again take the wheel at the EuroSpeedway. They will receive on-site coaching from BMW works driver Jörg Müller (DE). Müller was in action for the Schubert team at the 24 Hours Nürburgring (DE) last weekend, where both cars were forced out of the race for the top spots through no fault of their own.
Races five and six of the ADAC GT Masters season will be held as part of the joint race weekend with the DTM and the Superbike*IDM. A great motorsport spectacle awaits the fans. The races get underway at 1:08 p.m. CEST on Saturday and Sunday.
Timo Frings (Team Manager): "We have the most important race weekend of the ADAC GT Masters season ahead of us. Being able to celebrate a Motorsport Festival on the same weekend together with the DTM and the Superbike*IDM is as much of a highlight for us as a team as it is for the fans. We are delighted to be able to field two BMW M6 GT3s for the first time this season at this event. We didn't have much time to prepare for this new challenge after the 24-hour race, but all of our team members are as highly motivated as ever to celebrate the greatest possible successes on the racetrack. Unfortunately, this didn't work out at the Nürburgring, despite a strong performance. But fortunately, just a few days later, we have the opportunity to forget about the bad luck we experienced at the Nordschleife."
