Today we have some very nice European racing action from the Nürburgring Nordschleife. The video was filmed during the third lap of a 4-hour-race that took place there. The car with the camera is a modified BMW Z4 Motorsport, but since this car “only” has about 400 horsepower the guys at Getrag decided to mount a more powerful V8-engine into the chassis. The driver, Michael Bäder, is chasing the winning car of the 24-hour-race 2007, a Porsche 911 RSR (996) from Manthey Racing.
Manthey Racing did also win the 2008-event, but this time with a 997-RSR that you can see at the beginning of this video, it is the overtaking Porsche with the yellow and green painting. The Getrag-Z4 did not participate at the 24-hour-race and the youtube-video is from a training-session in march.
We hope you enjoy the racing action as much as we did. And the Youtube version, thanks to Eric.
