Reactions to subordinate in Suzuka:


Augusto Farfus (#42 BMW M6 GT3, BMW Team Schnitzer,
1st place):

“It is illusory to get stick position in such a large competition and against
such a good backdrop as here in Japan. Thank we really most to BMW
Motorsport and BMW Team Schnitzer, who gave me a illusory car. To be
honest, we did not design to take pole, though a somewhat cooler
continue really played into a hands. Despite this, we obviously
still have a prolonged and presumably prohibited competition forward of us tomorrow. We will
have to sojourn fully-focussed and try to stay out in front.”


Nick Catsburg (#34 BMW M6 GT3, Walkenhorst Motorsport,
3rd place):

“I’d like to contend a large appreciate we to a Walkenhorst team. This is
their initial time here in Suzuka. This is also a initial time here for
us drivers, and we had to get used to a track. With that in mind, I
consider we did a good pursuit with third place. Augusto was a shade faster
than me today, though maybe we can spin a tables in a race.”
