Reactions to a third competition of a IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar
Championship during Long Beach.


Bobby Rahal (BMW Team RLL, Team Principal): “A fifth
place roughly feels like a win. Our plan worked out good initially,
pitting early and removing one of a cars into a lead after the
yellow. It was apparent that it would be really formidable for us to stay
in a lead, however we am unhappy for a group as everybody has
worked really hard. We will keep operative tough and wish we will get back
to a gait we had during Sebring.”


Jesse Krohn (#24 BMW M8 GTE, fifth place): “We got
a best out of a car. We got to a front with a #25 through
good use of plan yet we saw a other cars pushing around us. I
am really happy for what we were means to do currently with what we had.”


John Edwards (#24 BMW M8 GTE, fifth place): “We
executed a good competition even yet we knew we did not have a gait from
qualifying. We designed to have one automobile do a non-traditional strategy
and it worked when Alex got a lead underneath yellow. Unfortunately it
did not go as designed when a #25 automobile was pushed far-reaching and strike the
wall. We were means to run a purify competition in a #24 automobile and we consider we
executed well.”


Connor De Phillippi (#25 BMW M8 GTE, DNF): “The team
done a ideal plan call to come in early. We played it relatively
intelligent in a commencement to get out with a lead underneath yellow. We ran
as tough as we could, as we have a whole weekend, yet it simply
wasn’t utterly enough. Alex was fighting tough out there for us. Some
days aren’t your days and currently wasn’t ours. We will analyse and move
on to a subsequent eventuality and try to get behind into a quarrel for a podium.”


Alexander Sims (#25 BMW M8 GTE, DNF): “In the
beginning, a group done a good call on plan putting us forward of
everybody else. If a automobile and we had had some-more gait we would have been
means to make it hang and would have got a good outcome from it.”
