a final time in this purpose in Macau.


At a start, Farfus asserted himself during a front of a margin and
in a following laps went on to extend his lead. His rivals managed
to tighten a opening in a final stages of a race, yet Farfus kept a
cold conduct in a slight civic canyons, didn’t make any mistakes and
brought a BMW M6 GT3 home in initial place.

dream came true. This place is magical, a races here are always a
deteriorate highlight. We have raced here with BMW furloughed cars for many

interjection go to BMW that we were means to contest here again this year.
Even yet there were no overtaking manoeuvres during a race, you
could feel a heated torment throughout. Augusto couldn’t means to
make even a smallest mistake, differently his rivals would have
pounced. He gathering a ideal race. we have gifted many wonderful
moments in my racing career – and a win currently was unequivocally one of them.”


Augusto Farfus (BMW M6 GT3, automobile series 42): “I don’t
unequivocally know what to say. BMW put their trust in me, we sat down
together and came adult with a plan, and implemented it perfectly. That
doesn’t always work out. The competition currently wasn’t easy. The lane had
reduction hold than yesterday. we knew that we couldn’t means to make even
a smallest mistake since a guys behind me were fast. we think
that a conflict during a tip between a several brands was unusually
tighten for this track. I’m gay that we brought home a win. BMW
