Bobby Rahal (Team Principal, BMW Team RLL):
“Obviously we are gratified with a turn of success that we have had
so distant this year. The cars are now rival compared to where we
were final year and a early partial of this year. I’m unequivocally gratified and
unequivocally elegant of all a work that BMW Motorsport and a group has
finished in improving a doing of a car. We have found some real
gains recently that have unequivocally finished a automobile utterly good in these long,
discerning corners. Lime Rock is not Watkins Glen or Mosport in terms of
length and altogether speed maybe though it does have a satisfactory array of
pretty discerning corners and, once again, that tends to play to our
strength. BMW has had a prolonged attribute with Lime Rock and it’s our
home lane so, unnecessary to say, doing good there is unequivocally critical to
us and would be a good place to continue a success. Our drivers are
doing a unequivocally good pursuit in terms of removing a many out of a car
and a array stops have been good. With all of that in mind, we have
to go into a competition weekend feeling optimistic.”

we have going in a array BMW M6 GTLM. In a final 3 races we’ve
finished second, initial and first. That has put us second in the
championship, usually 3 points behind. The usually thing on my mind is
lectern after lectern that will lead to a championship during a finish of
a year.”

 

Alexander Sims (No. 25 BMW M6 GTLM): “I am looking
brazen to removing to another new lane and training all we can before
a race. Mosport went good underneath identical conditions so we can only
wish we can reconstruct that arrange of gait and quarrel for a podium
positions again.”

few races for us and I’m vehement to lift a movement into Lime Rock.
This is a lane where we had my initial win as a BMW motorist behind in
2013 so we have some good memories here. The competition is as tighten as we’ll
get to a home competition for BMW so it would be special to win here again.
Although we don’t have a prototypes with us this race, Lime Rock is
still one of a many severe marks to get by trade so it
is really going to be a raging race!”

 

Martin Tomczyk (No. 24 BMW M6 GTLM): “It will be a
good feeling entrance to Lime Rock after a one-two during Mosport. The
group is rarely encouraged and we will try to use this movement for Lime
Rock. For me a lane is again a new one. So distant it has never been a
problem to adjust fast to any new marks in a US.”
