Bobby Rahal (Team Principal BMW Team RLL): “We have
had some success during Road Atlanta over a years and while this year
has had some highs and lows, we wish to finish a deteriorate a approach we
started it – with a win. You always feel good going behind to places you
have had success at, and of course, Petit Le Mans is one of those
places. The high of a deteriorate was apparently a win during a 24 Hours
At Daytona and lows being some of those like Long Beach and the
mid-season races though we demeanour to finish on a high note and bookend the
year with wins. The gait of a BMW M8 GTE during Canadian Tire Motorsport
Park and during Laguna Seca was flattering good so I’m carefree that those
performances were a predecessor of good things to come during Petit Le
Mans. It’s a tough race. If we speak to many drivers they contend it’s
unequivocally a one line competition lane in a lot of areas, generally with all
a faster trade entrance by you, so a possibility of removing held out
by lapping trade is flattering good. It’s substantially one of a more
perfectionist races on a schedule, like Sebring and Daytona. Everyone is
looking brazen to going. We’re usually anticipating we have a trouble-free
competition and if we are means to lift that off, we should be in a hunt.”

to finish on a lectern in half of my appearances during Petit Le Mans,
though have nonetheless to squeeze a fugitive win. Hopefully, this can be a year
for Jesse, myself and Philipp! We’ve had some tough races this year so
it would be good to finish off a year with another podium. This is
always an heated competition with a lot of variables and mostly some rain.
The competition finishing during night also adds another non-static that creates the
quarrel during a finish even some-more challenging. We are prepared for a long
10-hour battle.”

one of a prominence events of a year. Road Atlanta is one of the
best marks to competition during and will offer movement for a full 10 hours of racing.”

scarcely over! I’m looking brazen to this competition since it’s a track
I’ve tested during and we unequivocally like a upsurge of it. It’s also one of the
longer races of a deteriorate that brings another component to a table.
We know a automobile should be clever there so though a doubt we’re going
with high expectations. We’re aiming to finish a deteriorate a approach the
boys started it, with a win!”


Connor De Phillippi (#25 BMW M8 GTE): “Petit Le Mans
is always a large one during a season. Not usually is Road Atlanta one of

for a arriving 2020 season. I’m looking brazen to removing on track
with a information we’ve schooled from a final few events and expect
zero reduction than to quarrel for victory.”
