BMW M3 GTR At Zandvoort This Weekend
The dormant EuroGT series will hold its only event of the 2004 season
at Zandvoort on August 7-8. The two 40 minute races, one on Saturday
one on Sunday, will be support races to the Marlboro Formula 3 Masters,
and should attract a good grid of GTs and "Specials",
and hopefully lead to a revival of the series in 2005. The Masters
always sees a healthy turnout of spectators, and there is a good
chance the Dutch fans will see a home win.
Duncan Huisman will be
driving a BMW M3 GTR – presumably not one of the Spa 24 Hours
"I am very proud
that BMW Motorsport / Team Schnitzer will come to the Netherlands
and take part in this race with me, with full works support,”
says Duncan Huisman. Two Dutch BMW dealers are behind this effort,
and have secured the necessary funding.
ETCC driver Huisman
knows the M3 GTR well, because he was part of the triumphant BMW
works squad at the Nürburgring 24 Hours where he shared the
second-placed car with Boris Said and Pedro Lamy. With Huisman's
local knowledge of the Zandvoort track, and Team Schnitzer's usual
thorough car preparation, it adds up to an irresistible combination.
The BMW M3 GTR
seems to be in greater demand than ever with organisers of GT races
these days; Team Schnitzer may also take part in the 24 Hours of
Zolder on 21-22 August.
