International Raceway (US) during a finish of February, BMW Team RLL is
feeling unequivocally certain about success during a 64th Annual 12 Hours of
Sebring on 19th March.

 

BMW Team RLL started to write a new section in BMW racing story at
a season-opening Rolex 24 during Daytona with dual new BMW M6 GTLM racing
cars. Both cars ran adult front and led a class, though teething problems
resulted in a fifth place finish by a series 25 car. Unfortunately,
a automatic disaster put a series 100 appurtenance into a wall just
past a 14 hour mark, ensuing in a DNF.

 

This year is a ancestral one for The Ultimate Driving Machine as
Bavarian Motor Works celebrates a 100th anniversary. To symbol the
arise both of a BMW M6 machines will competition with singular liveries
and numbers poignant to a marque. The series 100 BMW M6, with
John Edwards (US), Lucas Luhr (DE) and Kuno Wittmer (CA) pushing at
Sebring, looks brazen to BMW’s subsequent century with an artistic theme
that reveals a night-glow surprise.

 

The series 25 BMW M6, driven during Sebring by Bill Auberlen (US), Bruno
Spengler (CA) and Dirk Werner (DE) races in honour of BMW Motorsport’s
initial deteriorate racing in a US in 1975. The automobile displays images of four
poignant racing BMWs; a 3.0 CSL, M1, M3 and V12 LMR. BMW has a
special story with a 12 Hours of Sebring with dual altogether wins at
a classical event; 1975 3.0 CSL and 1999 V12 LMR. BMW also has scored
4 GT category wins with a BMW M3; 1997, 1998, 2011 and 2012.

 

The 64th 12 Hours of Sebring takes a immature dwindle during 10:40 a.m.
Saturday, 19th March.

 

Bobby Rahal (Team Principal, BMW Team RLL):

“Since BMW Team RLL began in 2009 we have had some success at
Sebring. We won in 2011 and 2012 and have been on a lectern an
additional 3 times, so we have always had some flattering good fortune
during Sebring. It’s a unequivocally formidable circuit, a many formidable competition in
a universe we consider in terms of final on a car, for sure. we was
tender with a BMW M6 and a systems trustworthiness during Daytona.
While we had a automatic emanate on a series 100 car, a series 25
automobile ran though a hitch, and that creates me confident. On tip of that
we have had several tests during Sebring and once again a systems and
automatic continuance of a automobile seems to have been borne out. There
is no reason because we can’t have a good race.”

 

Bill Auberlen (Number 25 BMW M6 GTLM):

“While anything can occur during a 12 Hours and, given the
competitiveness of a GLTM category it’s tough to contend how we’ll do, 40
years ago BMW Motorsport showed what can be finished in a second race.
Perhaps we can make some story of a possess during Sebring this year.”

 

Dirk Werner (Number 25 BMW M6 GTLM):

“The automobile felt unequivocally good during a Sebring test. That, in further to how
good a automobile was during Daytona, all points in a right direction. I
unequivocally suffer racing during Sebring. It is a difficult, technical circuit.
The M6 has some clear advantages during Sebring over a Z4. It is
calmer over a bumps and gives larger certainty generally in turns
one and 17.”

 

Bruno Spengler (Number 25 BMW M6 GTLM):

“I am gratified to support Bill and Dirk for a second time this season
in a series 25 M6 GTLM. This will be my unequivocally initial 12 Hours of
Sebring and it is a competition we have prolonged looked brazen to competing in.”

 

John Edwards (Number 100 BMW M6 GTLM):

“Obviously a outcome for a series 100 M6 during Daytona was a
disappointment, though we were all gratified to see that a 25 car
finished strongly. The Sebring exam has authorised a group to concentration on
a sum and start a excellent tuning – dampers rather than
electronics, for instance – that will unequivocally compensate dividends during a 12 Hours.”

 

Lucas Luhr (Number 100 BMW M6 GTLM):

“It was good to see that a new M6 was rival during Daytona.
Despite a DNF for a series 100 car, a opening really
provides proclivity for Sebring and a exam shows we will be during the
front of a margin again.”

 

Kuno Wittmer (Number 100 BMW M6 GTLM):

“Sebring is always a formidable competition and unequivocally most a exam for a car,
a motorist and a team. We showed strength during Daytona. At a 9 to
10 hour symbol a series 100 automobile was using unequivocally well, so that
positively bodes good for Sebring. We tested good there recently so I
am looking brazen to a good finish.”
