The Mastermakers - The BMW Schnitzer Story - by Gustav Büsing / Uwe Mahla
BMW Team Schnitzer has been involved in top-class motorsport for 50 years. The team from Freilassing in Upper Bavaria has won countless championships over the past decades. The most recent highlight in the eventful history of the family business of brothers Josef and Herbert Schnitzer as well as Charly and Dieter Lamm: In 2012, BMW Schnitzer driver Bruno Spengler won the last, all-important race for the DTM in a heart-stopping final. Three titles were thus clinched: for the driver, the BMW brand and the team. A total success in the first year of BMW's re-entry.
DIE MEISTERMACHER retraces the long road from humble beginnings to the present day, as Schnitzer ranks among the best racing teams in the world. Without claiming a complete account of every single year, every single race. But peppered with highlights, turning points, episodes and a great deal of humanity on and off the race track.
The name Schnitzer stands for around 400 victories and title wins on race tracks all over the world. The authors and contemporary witnesses Gustav Büsing and Uwe Mahla have compiled a wealth of racing history and memorable stories from this period, both dramatic and amusing. Many world-class drivers who took the wheel for Schnitzer during their careers are portrayed and have their say (for example, the foreword is by Formula 1 ace Gerhard Berger). A gallery of around 400 photos, some of which have never been published before, on 256 pages takes us back to racing history long past. Of course, the 2012 and 2013 DTM seasons are also honoured in detail. A comprehensive statistics section documents this extraordinary team history. At the same time, this book allows a detailed foray through five decades of fascinating racing. An impressive compliment to DIE MEISTERMACHER.
