Reactions to a top-30 shoot-out during a Nürburgring:

 

Jesse Krohn (#99 BMW M6 GT3, ROWE Racing, grid position: 10
):

“It was an alright event and I’m happy with my path though I’m also
astounded with the qualifying pace. we gave it my ‘all’ but, on one-lap
pace, we didn’t utterly have it. The group did a good pursuit and a car
felt mega, so hopefully we can have a good competition and stay out of trouble.”

 

John Edwards (#98 BMW M6 GT3, ROWE Racing, grid position: 14):

“The BMW M6 GT3 felt unequivocally good though I’m really astounded by a lap
times of a other manufacturers – they are so quick. It’s a 24 hour
competition so starting places aren’t too critical – a critical thing is
that a automobile feels good.”

 

Augusto Farfus (#102 Shell Helix BMW M6 GT3, grid position: 18
):

“It was a purify subordinate and we did a good job. Of course, a race
is prolonged though we have a really good choice and a really good group so I’m
looking brazen to tomorrow.”

 

Jens Klingmann (#33 BMW M6 GT3, Falken Motorsports, grid
position: 21):

“We competent P21, that doesn’t sound good though that doesn’t tell
a full story. Our automobile is good on tyres so a final path of a stint
is roughly as discerning as a initial path – this means there is no rise for
subordinate though that we have a illusory prolonged stretch competition set-up.”
