Posted on 04. Aug, 2016 by in BMW Canada

Munich (DE), 3rd Aug 2016. BMW Team RLL is looking to Road America
(US), in Elkhart Lake, for a repeat of a sorcery a classical road
racing circuit brought to a team, when it raced to a initial BMW
feat in 2009, to see a BMW M6 GTLM strech a tip of a IMSA
WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GTLM category podium.

Since that initial win in 2009, a BMW Team RLL BMW M3 GT2 has won twice
some-more during Road America in a remaining 3 years of that programme,
finishing second in 2011 – a usually year it unsuccessful to win. The BMW Z4
programme raced from 2013 by 2015, with a Road America
prominence being a run to second from a stick in 2014.

This season’s two-hour-and-fourty-minute Continental Tire Road Race
Showcase will see BMW Team RLL arrive with dual newly rebuilt racing
cars after both were punted off and crashed during a 23rd Jul race
during Lime Rock Park (US). Both Bill Auberlen (US) and Lucas Luhr (DE)
were incompetent to race.

After 7 rounds finished and 4 remaining in a season,
Auberlen and Dirk Werner (DE), with dual lectern finishes to their
credit, mount fourth in a GTLM motorist points. Luhr and John Edwards
(US) mount ninth. BMW is ranked fifth in Manufacturer points.

Bobby Rahal (Team Principal BMW Team RLL):

“BMW Team RLL has been unequivocally successful during Road America over the
years. The fast, unconditional corners lend themselves to BMW’s handling
strengths. we trust a BMW M6 GTLM is equally good matched to the
circuit, only as it was during Watkins Glen – a lane with similar
corners. And, of course, Road America is a lane that is one of my
favourites in a world.”

Bill Auberlen (Number 25 BMW M6 GTLM):

“We are now headed to a best lane in America and it is time to
move home a win for a BMW M6 GLTM. It’s prolonged overdue and a recent
formula haven’t shown how extraordinary a automobile unequivocally is.”

Dirk Werner (Number 25 BMW M6 GTLM):

“Road America is one of a best marks we go to during a season,
and we will go there only after competing in a Spa 24 Hours on one of
a best marks in Europe. Good times for me! we consider we will have a
rival car, only like we had in a final integrate of races. The
group is operative but a mangle to urge a package. They wish to
get a initial win with a BMW M6 GTLM as most as Bill and we do.”

John Edwards (Number 100 BMW M6 GTLM):

“Elkhart Lake is always a fun place to go race. It’s a unequivocally historic
track, so there is a good appetite around a lane and a city when
we go there. Road America is also home to a Kink, a fastest corner
on a calendar, that has some large consequences if we get it wrong!
The lane also has some prolonged straights that always open adult the
event for some-more flitting than a standard circuit. It should be a
good race.”

Lucas Luhr (Number 100 BMW M6 GTLM):

“Road America is by distant my favourite circuit in a US. It would be
smashing to spin a deteriorate around this weekend for a series 100
car, and uncover a outcome that improved reflects a turn of effort
everybody has put in and a opening a BMW M6 GTLM unequivocally has.”
