BMW Motorsport has withdrawn its BMW M4 GT3 from this weekend’s VLN Nürburgring Endurance Series NLS4. The decision was made following an accident caused by a technical issue during practice on Friday.
“A crash on Friday evening means the BMW M4 GT3 is not able to take part in race four of the Nürburgring Endurance Series,” BMW Motorsport wrote in a short statement.
“The exact cause of the crash is being analysed. Prior to that, the tests at Spa-Francorchamps and on the Nordschleife had run smoothly.”
The new-for-2022 BMW was planned to make its race debut in the 52. Adenauer ADAC Rundstrecken-Trophy with Jens Klingmann and Sheldon van der Linde piloting the Bayern machine.
Hey everyone. We unfortunately won’t be starting todays race with the new car due to a crash on the Nordschleife yesterday. The cause is currently being analysed by our @BMWMotorsport engineers but I‘m all good, thanks for your messages 👌🏼🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/VSpsPNcJXH
