Nürburg, Germany, September 28, 2020: Nagarro, a global leader in digital engineering and technology solutions, supported the racing team comprising the father-son duo of Jürgen and Sebastian von Gartzen for the 4th time in a row at the most iconic car race in the world. In a unique first, BMW M4 GT4's entire motorsport season will be driven while being CO2-neutral this year. Another highlight is the support of female professional driver, Claudia Hürtgen. As an additional surprise, in view of the worldwide pandemic, Nagarro enabled seven employees to experience the spectacular race live, under strict safety arrangements.

In these difficult times of a worldwide pandemic, it was particularly important for Nagarro to support its long-time partner (and by now, friend) Jürgen von Gartzen to enable the four drivers of the Hofor Racing team to have a spectacular race. The race, which had already been postponed from June to September due to Coronavirus and is normally watched live by over 200,000 spectators, took place in front of only 10,000 spectators this year.

Hot tires for BMW M4

Pure excitement was the motto for all motor sport fans at this year's ADAC TOTAL 24-Hour Race at the German Nürburgring – spanning 25 km across a long and permanent racetrack that is famous in the world, both for its breathtaking beauty and surprise notoriety. Professional racing driver Sebastian von Gartzen (GER) took turns with his team‘s colleagues Claudia Hürtgen (GER), Michael Fischer (AT) and Michael Schrey (GER) at the wheel of the BMW M4 during the 24-hour race.

As Sebastian's father and manager, Jürgen von Gartzen, shared enthusiastically, “Unbelievable race! Extremely exciting! It was a change of 5-6 times to the first position. And in the end, the better team won in really hard conditions. It was a fantastic, faultless job from the team and drivers. And btw: It´s now the 3rd time winning together – many thanks to Nagarro!”

Diversity in Team Hofor Racing

The sleek BMW M4 was hard to miss not just for its performance, but also for its eye-catching look, with the recently launched new Nagarro logo. Nagarro is particularly pleased about the diversity in the Hofor Racing by Bonk Motorsport racing team this time, with both female and Austrian support behind the wheel. Claudia Hürtgen, one of the most successful German motor sportswomen, can already show some victories. Michael Fischer, the young Austrian talent who started out as a junior in the paddock, knows motor sports inside out and has successfully brought his knowledge to the team and to the racetrack.

CO2-neutral motorsport season

The Hofor Racing by Bonk Motorsport team is particularly proud that this year's season will be completely CO2-neutral, thanks to investments in extensive tree-planting projects. Speaking about this, Manas Fuloria, a co-founder of Nagarro, said, "Since Nagarro is committed to environmental initiatives worldwide, it is important for us that this season is CO2-neutral. We had committed to support the team in this context and we are happy to keep our word!”

Along with the sponsored team, Nagarro would like to congratulate the entire Hofor Racing by Bonk Motorsport team on the successful event and wishes them good luck for the future!
