Beam­ing all the way around ring

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Prestige -

A WIN at the Nur­bur­gring track has fo­cused timely at­ten­tion on the M3 badge just as BMW gears up to launch the M3 GTS.

A fac­tory-sup­ported BMW GT2 beat some se­ri­ous con­tenders over the gru­elling Nur­bur­gring 24-hour race, a bench­mark of en­durance rac­ing.

The Team Farn­bacher Fer­rari F430 GTC grabbed sec­ond place, with Audi’s R8 LMS in third af­ter a se­ries of prob­lems un­der­mined their one-two grid po­si­tions.

The spot­light was also on the Manthey Rac­ing Porsche 911 GT3R hy­brids, which ran well early in the race but had their hopes dashed when one car was in­volved in a col­li­sion and the other blew an en­gine.
