Bobby Rahal (Team Principal, BMW Team RLL):

“To be honest we haven’t had a kind of success we have wanted over
a years during VIR. Clearly we have been quick on occasion. We’ve
competent pretty good there, but, if we remember correctly, we feel
like we have been mugged there a few times in trade by some of our
competitors. The circuit should fit a BMW M6 GTLM a bit improved than
a BMW Z4 GTLM. Our automobile likes quick corners and there are copiousness of
those during VIR. There is also a prolonged straightaway and we consider we should
be pretty rival on that as well.  We had a exam there not
too prolonged ago so we consider we are prepared. It’s only a matter of having
a difficulty giveaway event.”

Bill Auberlen (Number 25 BMW M6 GTLM):

“We recently finished a exam during VIR and I’m blissful we did, as we were
means to get time on a new cement and learn utterly a few things. The
circuit had mislaid a ton of hold and we had to make some wholesale
changes. We are on a approach to carrying a unequivocally good package for a race.”

Dirk Werner (Number 25 BMW M6 GTLM):

“VIR is a lane that we suffer driving. My initial win in American road
racing happened there in 2007. we am looking brazen to this eventuality and,
of course, to saying a BMW Team RLL boys again. And, after a couple
of formidable weekends, we am rarely encouraged and wish to pull from the
initial use to get a good start into a weekend.”

John Edwards (Number 100 BMW M6 GTLM):

“VIR is a unequivocally cold circuit and a new cement could make things
tricky, though a information gained during a exam might give us a bit of an
edge. Our lectern during Road America positively has put a bit of breeze back
in a sails, so hopefully Lucas and we can finish a deteriorate strongly.”

Lucas Luhr (Number 100 BMW M6 GTLM):

“VIR is another superfast aged propagandize lane that we unequivocally like a lot.
we still demeanour for a Oak tree each now and then! We have a GT only
race, so for a change a conflict for honours in a GTLM category is also
for an altogether competition position. The lectern we scored during Road America
showed that when all comes together we have a gait to fight
for victory, and we can be certain that a devise as common is to fight
as tough as we can.”
