Longtime BMW team Schubert Motorsport will make the switch to Honda NSX GT3s in ADAC GT Masters this year but has vowed to continue its relationship with the German brand. 

The Oschersleben-based outfit will run one Honda in the German GT3 series, as part of the NSX GT3’s European debut.

The car, badged as an Acura, has already had success with in the U.S. with teams including Michael Shank Racing and RealTime Racing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and Pirelli World Challenge since its launch last year.

Christopher Dreyspring and Giorgio Maggi will drive Schubert’s car in the GT Masters season, which gets underway on April 13-15 at Oschersleben.

The team was a regular contestant in the series for many years and scored ten race wins with BMW between 2010 and 2016 while also claiming the 2015 teams’ championship.

A statement from the team ensured that “this close connection between Schubert Motors GmbH and BMW will continue.”

“I am looking forward to the exciting challenge that we and Honda are taking on together,” said managing director Andre Schubert.

“The car is new, and continuing its development is not going to be an easy task. We are well aware of that.

“At the same time, a process of this kind is always special, and I can already feel the sense of anticipation about the coming season running through the whole team.

“Our two drivers are new to the ADAC GT Masters, but their performance so far has been very impressive. We’ve set ourselves a clear objective for our two rookies, namely to win the Junior title!”

    This is goo news. Now they just need to target the other European GT3 series such as GT Open, Blancplain GT, British GT and even other ones such as 24 hour series. As well need to show this car can be used by AMs not just PRO.

    I’m confused…wasn’t there two NSX on the entry list? Any explanation where this second car disappeared to?
