BMW's M3 GT2 #26 faced a setback early in the race when a crash lost them an hour in the pits. However, the drivers fought back and placed seventh overall.

Two private BMW Z4 GT3 cars, #76 and 69, finished strongly in fourth and ninth places respectively.

BMW Motorsport Director Mario Theissen said: "That was a fantastic return for us at the 24-hour race on the Nurburgring-Nordschleife. This win reminds me of the triumph at Le Mans in 1999. After some of our direct rivals fell by the wayside, our victory was hanging by a thread. At about 12pm, the winning car developed a gearbox problem, resulting in the loss of one gear. Shortly after 1pm other gears gradually gave up. It was a masterful performance by Jorg Muller and Uwe Alzen to bring the car home in first place."
