would have been proud. A large enrich goes to each singular team
member and all drivers for an superb opening in an
emotionally formidable situation. Throughout a stirring race, a BMW
M6 GT3 was always partial of a heading organisation and was heading a race
for some time. With a small some-more luck, a lectern finish would have
been possible. we feel contemptible for Walkenhorst Motorsport carrying to
retire early in a competition due to technical problems.”

“We had an extraordinary competition in terms of a personal opening as a
team, though we didn’t have most some-more in a slot to quarrel for the
podium. It’s a contrition we were pushed wide, though that’s racing, and we
will concentration on a championship ahead. Thanks to a organisation – it was an
romantic weekend though we remained clever throughout.”

could do – and driver-wise we done no mistakes, put in good path times,
and were always underneath control. Unfortunately, a energy we had was not
adequate to quarrel for a victory.”

we fought tough to a end. It was unequivocally prohibited conditions here and it is
a credit to a automobile and organisation to make it a distance.”

“Of course, it’s never good to retire though we can’t forestall bad luck;
that’s racing. We have to demeanour brazen to Laguna Seca. we consider we will
be clever there and we can’t wait to get behind in a BMW M6 GT3.”
