Posted on 13. Aug, 2018 by in BMW Canada

Munich. The third turn of a World Endurance Championship
Super Season takes place during Silverstone (GBR) this weekend and BMW
Team MTEK is prepared to conflict for a lectern position after a promising
start to a season. 


The span of BMW M8 GTEs, that launched during a start of 2018, had a
trouble-free championship entrance during Spa-Francorchamps (BEL) and
demonstrated good competition gait during a 24 Hours of Le Mans (FRA). With
thirty hours of racing underneath their belts, Team Principal Ernest Knoors
feels a group is circumference closer to a initial WEC podium.


Comments on a Six Hours of Silverstone:


Ernest Knoors (Team Principal, BMW Team MTEK):

“Feels like ages given we left Le Mans so it’s good to be behind in
a competition spirit. There’s a lot of positives we can take from Le Mans –
we had a rival automobile and that should put us in good stead for the
six-hour races. We’re all looking brazen to removing behind to racing
this weekend and are pulling tough towards a initial correct result.”


Nick Catsburg (#81 BMW M8 GTE):

“We’re creation good swell with a BMW M8 GTE programme and I’m
looking brazen to removing things going again this weekend. If we
continue where we left off during Le Mans, we should be means to challenge
some of a WEC stalwarts during Silverstone.”


Martin Tomczyk (#81 BMW M8 GTE):

“It feels like a prolonged time given Le Mans so I’m looking brazen to
removing behind in a BMW M8 GTE. I’ve never finished any laps of
Silverstone, so it’s new for both me and a car, though I’ve listened great
things about it and we can’t wait to expostulate it. The group has had some
time to work on a automobile given Le Mans and we lapse with a most better
package than we had during Spa during a start of a season.”


António Félix da Costa (#82 BMW M8 GTE):

“After Le Mans, where we were utterly strong, I’m looking brazen to
removing behind in a automobile with Augusto. It’ll be a initial six-hour race
together and I’m vehement to see where a BMW M8 GTE will be. The
lane should fit us and I’m carefree we can measure a initial WEC podium.”


Augusto Farfus (#82 BMW M8 GTE):

“This will be my initial customary six-hour WEC competition and I’m sharing
with my 24 Hours of Le Mans team-mate António. Le Mans helped us big
time to get up-to-speed with a group and a automobile and I’m feeling
certain about Silverstone. we consider a lane will fit a BMW M8 GTE
and that will work in a favour.”
