Rigorous contrast readies BMW Team RLL for Circuit of a Americas.

Posted on 15. Sep, 2016 by in BMW Canada

The group will be racing for a fourth lectern finish of this year,
still gunning for a initial GTLM category feat for a new car. To
date, a group has scored really earnest formula during 3 of North
America’s classical circuits; second place during Sebring and a third place
finish during both Watkins Glen and Road America.

Last year’s IWSC competition during COTA saw BMW Team RLL measure a final of
3 wins in a 2015 deteriorate with a BMW Z4 GTLM as Bill Auberlen
(US) and Dirk Werner (DE) finished a deteriorate strongly, ultimately
finishing a tighten second in a driver’s championship.

The group closes a growth deteriorate section of a BMW M6
GLTM during this weekend’s two-hour-and-forty-minute competition during COTA and
a 10-hour Petit Le Mans competition during Road Atlanta, in Braselton (US) in
dual weeks time. As with any new racing automobile contrast has been during a top
of a engineers list. The past dual weeks following a competition at
VIRginia International Raceway during a finish of Aug have seen a team
criss-cross a nation to finish a really severe contrast schedule
that enclosed dual days during Circuit of a Americas and one day during Road Atlanta.

Bobby Rahal (Team Principal, BMW Team
RLL):
“We’ve had a flattering good record during COTA. We were
on stick a integrate of years ago with Joey Hand and afterwards final year we won
a good fuel plan race. We were means to better a faster Porsches
on fuel plan that was fun. It’s transparent a BMW M6 GTLM likes
marks with quick corners, that of march Circuit of a Americas has
a lot of so we should be competitive.”

Bill Auberlen (Number 25 BMW M6 GTLM): 
“It’s
been a bit of a tough start for a BMW M6 GTLM. We have been in
position to win a few races, though Lady Luck was not looking down upon
us. We have been on a lectern a few times though have only missed the
tip step and now hopefully during COTA it’s time to move home a victory.”

Dirk Werner (Number 25 BMW M6 GTLM): 
“Our
contrast during COTA went utterly well. We positively done improvements to the
car, though this competition – generally with a feverishness we customarily have there
this time of a year – can make it really difficult. A growth year
is always severe since a swell we make does not always
immediately outcome in victories, though it is all partial of relocating the
module forward.”

John Edwards (Number 100 BMW M6 GTLM): 
“COTA is
always a tough race. Tyre government will positively be one of a keys
to success. Our new contrast has answered many of this year’s
remaining questions and we trust we might see some gains in a next
dual races. Our lectern during Road America has helped a suggestion because
Lucas and we have not had many luck, though I’m assured a time is coming.”

Lucas Luhr (Number 100 BMW M6 GTLM): 
“Going
into a final dual rounds of a deteriorate John and we are operative really
tough to get a integrate of good formula for a No. 100 BMW M6. This
deteriorate has been one of a many adult and down ones we have ever
gifted in America, with sadly some-more downs than ups. COTA is a
lane we like a lot as it is really severe – generally a higher
speed corners. We know we have a gait to be rival in GTLM
that is so tighten this year, though flattering many anything that can go
wrong has left wrong for us.”
