German squad Schubert Motorsport is extending its programme for 2014. The team from Oschersleben will contest the remaining races of the Blancpain Sprint Series. Austrian drivers Dominik Baumann and Thomas Jäger will be behind the wheel of the BMW Z4 GT3. The duo will make their first appearance in Zandvoort on 6th July at the third race of the season.
Stefan Wendl (team manager): “We already started working on getting involved in the Blancpain Sprint Series in the winter. However, we were initially unable to implement the project due to issues with timing and budget. Now the six-month programme in this new series suits us perfectly. The same is true for Thomas Jäger, which is why we are all looking forward to the coming months.”
Thomas Jäger (driver): “Last year I realised that to get to the top of formula racing you need a lot of money. This is why I decided to change paths. Motorsport isn't restricted to Formula 1, there are plenty of other options. All of the major manufacturers are involved in GT sport and they offer excellent opportunities to young drivers like me. I had many offers of a cockpit for this year, but I chose BMW because I grew up with this brand. I'm delighted that it has worked out with Team Schubert.”
