There was also hope for the BMW Motorsport Team, as after 157 laps, they managed to come closer to a good sixth place, while the other pilots from BMW Walkenhorst Motorsport managed to have an eighth overall position, with number 28 BMW Z4 GT3.

Jens Klingmann, driver for BMW Sports Trophy Team Schubert, said after the race, managing to get the 6th place, that they deserved to be on the podium, since they were that close of pulling off the Audi, while being under a real pressure for some time.
