Hillsborough racing driver Daniel Harper enjoys sensational Nürburgring victory

BMW M Motorsport works driver, Hillsborough man Daniel Harper, is ready to mount a challenge for top honours in the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring next month after scoring a stunning race victory with the BMW Junior Team in the latest round of the Nürburgring Endurance Series.

Harper and team-mates Neil Verhagen and Max Hesse produced a mesmerising performance behind the wheel of their Team RMG prepared BMW M4 GT3 to record a memorable fourth overall race win together on the Nordschleife.

The trio headed into the event in high spirits after scoring a first podium finish of the Nurburgring season two weeks’ prior during NLS.

Daniel said: “What a fantastic day, it was pretty much perfect. The team did a superb job, giving us a faultless, fast race car, while the three of us drove really well, stayed out of trouble and set a great, consistent pace to be the fastest car throughout the race. “Personally, I’m over the moon with the laps I produced in qualifying and delighted to have secured a front-row start. I really enjoyed my stint, with some exciting battles with the Ferrari and a couple of other cars, while Neil and Max did a fantastic job in theirs.
