Munich. The formula for BMW Team RLL in a Continental Tire
Sports Car Showcase during Road America (USA) confute an bid that came
within mins of delivering a initial feat for a BMW M8 GTE.
Taking over a lead on path 42 with one hour remaining, Connor De
Phillippi (USA), pushing a No. 25 BMW M8 GTE, looked to be a
leader until mins from a checkered flag. Although indicated as
full of fuel on a final array stop, a refuelling complement emanate did not
in fact fill a automobile and De Phillippi was halted on lane just
before a white dwindle flew.


The No. 25 BMW M8 GTE of De Phillippi and Alexander Sims (GBR)
eventually finished sixth, dual laps in balance of a GTLM class
winning No. 67 Ford GT. After a unequivocally clever day, a No. 24 BMW M8 GTE
of John Edwards (USA) and Jesse Krohn (FIN) was forced to retire from
a competition with a automatic emanate on path 52 and was credited with an
eighth place finish.


The No. 96 Turner Motorsport BMW M6 GT3 of Robby Foley (USA) and
Markus Palttala (FIN) finished fourth in a GTD class.


Reactions to a competition during Road America:


Bobby Rahal (BMW Team RLL, Team Principal): “The No.
25 automobile contingency be a small contorted in a fuel tank. It looked like there
was adequate during a final array stop, though there only wasn’t. It’s tough
to be that tighten to winning a race, though we leave meaningful we’re competitive.”

Connor De Phillippi (No. 25 BMW M8 GTE, 6th place):
“We led a vast apportionment of a final stint, though with dual laps
to go, we had a event and entrance into a final dilemma only ran
totally out. we wouldn’t contend we am unhappy since a guys put
in so most tough work, though we did not get a outcome we deserved.”

Alexander Sims (No. 25 BMW M8 GTE, 6th place):
“The automobile was doing easily and a guys were doing a great
job, though – plain and elementary – this was a tough approach to lose.”

John Edwards (No. 24 BMW M8 GTE, 8th place):
“We were utterly rival currently and once again had a
automatic issue, so it’s unequivocally unsatisfactory since we consider we had
a certain mark during a lectern and potentially a P2.”

Jesse Krohn (No. 24 BMW M8 GTE, 8th place):
“Early on in a competition it looked good. We were means to keep up
with a container and even quarrel for position, though eventually it wasn’t
a day.”

during a Michelin GT Challenge during VIR on 19th August.
