Munich. The annual outing to Road America (USA) is always a
prominence for BMW Team RLL. The classical Wisconsin circuit hosts the
eighth GTLM turn of a IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and
was a site of BMW Team RLL’s really initial stick position and victory
in 2009 behind a efforts of Bill Auberlen and Joey Hand (both USA)
in their BMW M3 GT. Over a past 8 seasons a group has scored
an additional dual poles and 7 lectern finishes during a historic
engine circuit, including dual some-more wins in 2010 and 2012.


Sunday’s 2:40-hour competition will see a group looking to supplement to the

and dual second place finishes during Sebring (USA) and Mid-Ohio (USA).


Turner Motorsport has entered Auberlen and Robby Foley (USA) in the
no. 96 TMS BMW M6 GT3. Turner has won a GTD category twice before at
Road America. First, with a BMW Z4 GT3 in 2014 during their
championship winning deteriorate and in 2017, before fasten BMW Team RLL
this year, Jesse Krohn (FIN) co-drove a Turner Motorsport BMW M6 GT3
with Jens Klingmann (GER) to a GTD category victory.


Statements on a competition during Road America.


Bobby Rahal (BMW Team RLL, Team Principal): “I always
demeanour brazen to Road America. We have been rival with each BMW
indication we have raced there over a years – BMW M3 GT, BMW Z4 GTLM and
BMW M6 GTLM. we have each reason to trust that a BMW M8 GTE will
be no different.”


Connor De Phillippi (#25 BMW M8 GTE): “Road America
is one of my top-three circuits on a calendar and a place where my
expectations are high for a BMW M8 GTE. High speed and issuing with
a few low speed technical pieces is accurately what a automobile is built for!
We’ve regrouped, done improvements and are prepared to get behind on the
lectern where we know we’re able of performing.”


Alexander Sims (#25 BMW M8 GTE): “Since Lime Rock I
have been to Spa in Belgium for a 24-hour GT3 competition where we finished
second to another BMW, so that was a fun and successful weekend!
Looking brazen to Road America though, it’s nonetheless another extraordinary circuit
that a IMSA championship goes to and we am looking brazen to
hustling a BMW M8 GTE around a track. I’m carefree that we can get
a automobile dialed in to a circuit and get some movement going for the
final third of a season.”


John Edwards (#24 BMW M8 GTE): “Road America is a
classic. The lane has good upsurge with a large accumulation of slow, medium,
and high speed corners, including a fastest dilemma on a schedule,
a kink. It takes commitment, though it’s probable to take a kink
flat-out during around 150mph, even in a large GT car! After a very
severe deteriorate so far, Jesse and we will be looking to bounce
behind on Sunday in Elkhart Lake.”


Jesse Krohn (#24 BMW M8 GTE): “Road America is my
favourite lane in a U.S. so we am looking brazen to pushing there
with a BMW M8 GTE. Last year was good with a BMW M6 GT3 as we
scored a win and we wish we can be as rival this year with the
new car.”
