Arrow 24 Hours. So Close. Great Film Featuring BMW Motorsports at 2012 Nurburgring Race

24 HOURS. SO CLOSE...

BMW Team Schubert and the 2012 Nürburgring 24 Hours

..."Pole position, a magnificant start and the fastest lap of the race: The BMW Z4 GT3 left a lasting impression in the 40th running of the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring. While the two BMW Team Schubert cars had to make do with finishing 7th and 8th respectively after suffering technical issues, the crew had all reason to be proud of its performance in "Green Hell". Film makers Tim and Nick Hahne sum up the eventful race weekend in this amazing video."

...from the same great people who gave us: 24 Hours - One Team. One Target.

Amazing! Thanks for sharing.
I haven't followed the Z4 GT3 but doesn't it use the S65 motor from the M3?

as you saw on the video where it shows Z4 without the hood, it uses the same M3 motor (S65). I'm sure 2013 Nurburg race they will use S65 again.

It's just amazing this motor....true race motor competing against Audi R8 5.2 and SLS 63amg motors

Yes, they use the S65 engine in the Z4 GT3 car.

IF you have a spare 340K euros (plus VAT! +19%) laying around you can buy one! Here is the technical details via BMW Motorsports website. There is a tech pdf at the bottom of the page...

It's the S65 4.4 from the GTS/CRT- there are some minor modifications to oiling and a few other things as per FIA GT3 regs, but the majority of it is stock- The car is homologated for a handful of years still. GT3 rules are interesting and homologation doesn't require a specific chassis to carry the engine but the manufacturer and the engine is then restricted by the FIA (its complicated).

The gossip around here is that ALMS may be introducing GT3 next year to replace GTC thanks to heavy lobbying by MB, Audi, BMW, AM and others... would bring a whole bunch more fun and a BMW as this is the last year for the E92 M3 in racing.
