Nick Yelloly Wins Nürburgring 24 Hour Qualifying Race With Walkenhorst Motorsport

Fresh from his two-day test with the SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team in Barcelona, Solihull’s Nick Yelloly resumed his BMW Motorsport Factory driving duties as he headed to Germany to take on the 6 Hour qualifying race with Walkenhorst Motorsport, ahead of the 24 Hours of Nürburgring on 22 June.Yelloly lined up alongside fellow British driver David Pittard, and Christian Krognes in the #101 Playstation-backed BMW M6 GT3 for the race at the legendary ‘Green Hell’.After a strong practice and qualifying, the team lined up twenty-first on the grid of one hundred cars for the start of the race. Over the course of the 41 laps they fought hard to make it through to the front of the pack.A good performance by the three drivers put them in a strong position in the closing stages of the race, and while Christian Krognes was on his final stint, the Norwegian made a brilliant pass on the #99 ROWE Racing BMW to take the lead.The move would mean Krognes led home a 1-2-3 finish for BMW, taking Walkenhorst Motorsport’s first race win since 2015 at the Nürburgring by 12.6 seconds.With the first part of the 2019 ADAC Total 24 hours of Nürburgring completed, focus now switches to 20-23 June where the team will have it all to do again.
