Triple winner Philipp Eng brings home the maiden success of Marco Wittmann and Nick Yelloly with a lead of 11.129 seconds / Firmly maintains overall lead in drivers and team standings


St. Ingbert, 2nd July 2023 – With a brilliant performance and fantastic team spirit, ROWE RACING has won the 24 Hours of Spa for the third time, following their victories in 2016 and 2020. Austrian driver Philipp Eng, who also triumphed for the third time in the endurance classic and highlight of the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup, confidently brought home the win for the team from St. Ingbert in the final stages of an eventful race, securing the first Spa victory for his teammates Marco Wittmann and Nick Yelloly. 

After 24 hours and 537 laps on the Belgian Formula 1 track, he crossed the finish line in the #98 BMW M4 GT3 with a lead of 11.129 seconds, completing the 25th victory for record‑holder BMW M at the 75th edition of the race. 

This victory continues ROWE RACING’s impressive success streak this season. In the last five races, at least one of ROWE RACING’s BMW M4 GT3 cars has stood on the podium: second place in the third round of the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS), a double victory at the opening of the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup in Monza, second place at the ADAC 24h Nürburgring, and third place at the 1,000km race at Le Castellet. Now, they have achieved another triumph at Spa. Throughout all these races, two‑time DTM champion Marco Wittmann has been on the podium, and he has now fulfilled his dream of winning a 24‑hour race. British driver Nick Yelloly was already part of ROWE RACING’s winning trio in the 2020 24‑hour classic at the Nürburgring.
