It was the first ever podium finish at the Nurbergring 24 Hour Race for the BMW Z4 GT3.

The endurance classic is a prestigious event with the capacity to allow more than 200 cars to participate in the race. Each lap is a staggering 15.5 miles long, and the acclaimed motorsport vehicle managed an impressive 88 laps in this time.

BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS drivers Maxime Martin, Yelmer Buurman, Andrea Piccini and Richard Göransson combined their talents over the eventful 24 hours to bring the car across the finish line after the Mercedes team.

Despite being pipped to the post by rivals Mercedes, BMW remain the most successful manufacturer at the event with 19 wins since 1970, quite an accolade for what is renowned to be the most challenging circuit in the world.

The BMW Z4 GT3 is set to take part in several international championships pitting its prowess, performance and power against the competition.
