Here's a quote of Max Martin after qualifying for Pole in tomorrows race:

Maxime Martin (# 1 BMW ALPINA B6 GT3), pole position in Race 2:
"My first race this year and my first pole! When I last contested the ADAC GT Masters three years ago, I won both races and I hope this series of wins can continue. Whilst our opponents might not yet have got things sorted this weekend, we´ve done our homework thoroughly. The new Yokohama tyres performed well today, and now I can´t wait to see how they´ll hold up under race conditions."

Looks like ALPINA finished in 4th in the second race. Not sure of specifics - Martin lead from the front for the laps I watched on the live timer.

37 secs off the lead so some incident must have happened.

The other ALPINA (Car 2) finished 33rd - only doing 21 of the 39 laps. Race time 33mins 32secs - so finished just after half way

Great footage of the end of race 1

If you haven't time to watch it all - fast forward to the 'commited' overtake by Maxime Martin !!! just after 5 minutes - but all of it worth a watch !!
