“You need a small fitness in Macau, though we have to be means to
take advantage of that good fortune. We did that today. Our strategy
was good. After a opening lap, it was all about staying ease and not
holding too many risks. As we got serve into a race, we was means to
make even some-more swell by a field. The lectern is not so far
out of strech now, and we apparently wish to lift today’s movement into
a categorical race. We will pull tough again tomorrow.”


Joel Eriksson (#91 BMW M6 GT3, 9th place):
“That was not an easy competition for me. Right from a start we
had an emanate with a ABS and my wheels kept locking up. As a result,
we had to stop progressing for a corners. Despite that, we were means to
make adult some ground. The gait was indeed good, so it is a contrition that
we wasn’t means to pull as tough as we would have liked.”
