with a #25 BMW M8 GTE starting third. The #24 BMW M8 GTE had an
emanate early in a competition and with this being a entirely immature dwindle race,
it was always going to be tough to make that time adult that again. The
tyre plunge of a #25 automobile was usually not predicted and with that
being a determining cause here during Lime Rock, we usually fell out of a running.”

govern exquisitely and in this array any tiny mistake can set we back.”

even better.”
