Battle for a lectern during a 24h Spa-Francorchamps comes to an early finish for Walkenhorst Motorsport.

Spa-Francorchamps. Walkenhorst Motorsport battled for the
lectern with both BMW M6 GT3s during a 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps
(BEL), though their clever opening went unrewarded. Both cars
late during a night. The #35 BMW M6 GT3, with Martin Tomczyk,
Timo Glock (both GER) and Thomas Neubauer (FRA) during a wheel, was
shop-worn in a collision. The #34 BMW M6 GT3 suffered a technical
issue. That automobile was common by Sheldon outpost der Linde (RSA), Marco
Wittmann (GER) and David Pittard (GBR).

 

When night fell after a opening theatre with durations of complicated rain,
a #35 was on lane to a lectern in third place. A collision
occurred shortly before midnight, however, while Tomczyk was lapping
another automobile and a left front cessation broke. After a correct break,
a #35 returned to a lane though afterwards had to retire. The #34, which
successfully fought a approach behind adult a margin after tyre repairs early
on, was afterwards in line for a lectern finish, though Pittard was forced to
park a automobile during a corner of a lane during around half past 3 in the
morning when a automobile mislaid drive.

 

The #10 BMW M6 GT3 of Boutson Ginion Racing, that contested the
Pro-Am Cup, crossed a finish line in 35th position. Jens Klingmann
(GER), Karim Ojjeh (KSA), Jens Liebhauser (GER) and Yann Zimmer (SUI)
took turns during a circle of a car.

 

Quotes from a 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps:

 

Niclas Königbauer (Team Manager Walkenhorst
Motorsport):
“Obviously, it is a sour disappointment. We
were adult there fighting for a lectern with both cars. The drivers and
a whole group were rarely motivated, and we saw that we had a pace
in a race, though infrequently things work out differently than we hope.
The fact that dual hapless situations meant we didn’t finish with
possibly automobile creates us unequivocally unhappy – quite as it was a BMW M6 GT3’s
farewell competition here during Spa-Francorchamps.”

 

Sheldon outpost der Linde (#34 BMW M6 GT3, Walkenhorst
Motorsport):
“It’s a unequivocally sour tablet to swallow after such a
clever start to a weekend. We were adult there in each singular session
and we overtly consider we had all a mixture to win this competition but
unfortunately we had to retire a automobile early in a morning. It’s a
large shame, generally as both cars were out. It hurts twice as much
when we are in such a good position and know we have a strong
package and all we need to do is to pierce it home. But Spa is such a
tough competition to win, we need so most fitness and we have so many different
factors concerned that all need to tumble into place and unfortunately
that wasn’t a box this year.”

 

Marco Wittmann (#34 BMW M6 GT3, Walkenhorst
Motorsport):
“Obviously, it is a unsatisfactory outcome for
us, generally saying as both cars retired. We had impossibly strong
gait and were in a position of being means to conflict for a podium
or even a win. After tyre repairs in a opening stage, we battled
a approach behind adult by a margin gradually, and we handed a automobile over
to David in third place. But afterwards we had to retire. It’s unequivocally sad
since we had a clever automobile and wanted to commemorate a BMW M6 GT3
with a opposite outcome in a final 24-hour competition during Spa. But that’s
motorsport for you.”

 

David Pittard (#34 BMW M6 GT3, Walkenhorst
Motorsport):
“I am apparently unequivocally unhappy for us in both
a #34 automobile and a #35 car. Walkenhorst Motorsport had prepared two
front-running cars though afterwards unfortunately both had issues while
using in a tip three. Unfortunately, that is continuation racing and
we always have to design these things though it creates it all a more
unpleasant when we are using so tighten to a front. A large interjection to
all a group for all their efforts to make a automobile so discerning and put us
in such a rival position. Unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be
this year for Walkenhorst Motorsport and BMW.”

 

Martin Tomczyk (#35 BMW M6 GT3, Walkenhorst
Motorsport):
“It’s a contrition that both cars retired. Everything
was going unequivocally good for us in a #35, we had a clever pace, a car
was good and we was faster than a dual leaders in my stint. we was
within strech of them though afterwards a collision happened while overtaking.
That brought a 24-hour competition to an finish for us. It was a genuine shame,
though these are a kind of things that occur in motorsport, however
sour they might be. Now we’re focussing on a subsequent race, that will
hopefully spin out better.”

 

Timo Glock (#35 BMW M6 GT3, Walkenhorst Motorsport):
“Both cars timid was a genuine contrition for a whole team. But that’s
24-hour races. Our automobile was unequivocally good, we were in a tip three, had
a flawless competition with clever stints, had no lane extent warnings and
nothing. Before a collision we were during a very, unequivocally good turn and
were in a unequivocally good position for removing a clever result. Martin and
Thomas gathering illusory stints, and we was also unequivocally gratified with mine.
we had good gait and worked a automobile adult into a tip three. we felt very
during palliate in a car.”

 

Thomas Neubauer (#35 BMW M6 GT3, Walkenhorst
Motorsport):
“It was unequivocally distressing to see both our
BMWs timid from a race. We all had a unequivocally clever gait and
everyone, a drivers, Walkenhorst Motorsport and BMW did a good job
this weekend. That is because it’s even worse to finish like this. But
we showed that we were fighting for a tip positions, and now we just
need to keep a conduct high and pierce on to a subsequent race. A large thank
we to Walkenhorst Motorsport and BMW for providing such an amazing
car. It was so most fun pushing this car. It was not a approach we wanted
to finish a final 24 hours of Spa for a BMW M6 GT3 though it is what
it is. Motorsport can be an extraordinary competition and unequivocally cruel during the
same time.”
