Munich (DE), 29th Jun 2016. Following an eight-week interregnum in the
2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (IWSC), BMW Team RLL
shifts right behind into high rigging with races during Watkins Glen
International (US) on a 3rd Jul and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park
(CA) one week later. The dual princely North American permanent road
courses will certainly be a severe exam for a new BMW M6 GTLM that
showed early guarantee during Daytona (US) and Sebring (US), though struggled
to put all a pieces of a new package together during Laguna Seca (US).

For both races BMW of North America will foe a series 25 car,
driven by Bill Auberlen (US) and Dirk Werner (DE), with a special
clothing to applaud a 4th Jul as good as to compensate loyalty to one of
a many renouned BMWs ever to foe in North America – a BMW M3 GTR.
The BMW M3 GTR raced and won with this stars and stripes clothing during the
Oct 2001 Petit Le Mans foe in Road Atlanta (US). Auberlen, along
with Boris Said (US) and Hans-Joachim Stuck (DE), were a winning
drivers. The series 100 BMW M6 GTLM, co-driven by John Edwards (US)
and Lucas Luhr (DE), will continue to foe with a singular livery
celebrating BMW’s 100th anniversary.

The Sahlen’s Six Hours of a Glen is adult initial during a newly
resurfaced 3.4-mile, 17-turn Watkins Glen circuit. The group tested
twice during Watkins Glen in May, gaining knowledge on a new Michelin
tyre that was introduced during Laguna Seca before a Le Mans break. An
additional two-day exam recently during Road Atlanta (US) supposing more
information that will assistance a BMW M6 GTLM contest on a high-speed,
revengeful circuit in a Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

The Sahlen’s Six Hours of a Glen takes a immature dwindle during 16.10 CET
Sunday, 3rd July. The Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix during a Canadian
Tire Motorsport Park takes a immature dwindle during 17.05 CET Sunday, 10th July.

Bobby Rahal (Team Principal BMW Team RLL):

“We tested during a Glen recently and we consider we had good pace. The
Watkins Glen exam was a initial possibility to unequivocally know a new
tyre that was introduced, so a opening was improved and we feel
good about that. The repaving of a circuit has finished it most quicker
than it was, so it will be fast, unequivocally fast. We’ve been on stick there
before, finished third final year. We’ve had gait there so I’m
confident of a chances there for sure. You always demeanour brazen to
going to Watkins Glen since it’s such a chronological place and really,
in many ways, a hearth of racing in this country.”

Bill Auberlen (Number 25 BMW M6 GTLM):

“We’ve finished utterly a bit of contrast during a Glen and we’re removing more
in balance with a automobile any test. Mosport fast follows so we have to
be prepared for both weekends when we hurl out of a truck.”

Dirk Werner (Number 25 BMW M6 GTLM):

“Laguna Seca showed that we had to make improvements and we used the
mangle to do accurately that. My clarity is we’ll be means to get closer to
a competition, as a BMW M6 GTLM seems to like high speed corners
and that is what Watkins Glen and Mosport offer.”

John Edwards (Number 100 BMW M6 GTLM):

“Watkins Glen is my favorite circuit in North America and, with the
resurfacing, I’m even some-more vehement to foe there again. The test
showed us how most hold there is now, so it seems a lane flows even
improved than it did before. Having Mosport a subsequent weekend usually adds
to my excitement, as a racing motorist likes zero some-more than dual fast
weekends in a row.”

Lucas Luhr (Number 100 BMW M6 GTLM):

“Mosport clearly separates a group from a boys and is my favorite
of a dual circuits. we trust a BMW M6 GTLM will be clever there. I
pronounced final year that Watkins Glen reminds me of sections of the
Nordschleife, so it is a tighten second to Mosport. Now that it is
repaved it is illusory to drive. It will be a severe dual weeks.”
