surprise. we am gratified to have set a fastest time by a BMW. That is
one square of good news after what was, on a whole, a difficult
qualifying. We have some work to do in a race.”

over a radio. As a result, we usually did one drifting path though we could
not have matched a times during a tip anyway. It is a shame, as we
showed via a preparations for this foe what a cars are
able of. Some of a rivals softened massively in qualifying. We
will now concentration on a prolonged race.”

mistakes, though only mislaid time here and there. we don’t unequivocally know where
we are ostensible to collect adult 7 seconds. However, one thing is clear,
we will pull and quarrel tough to make it a good race.”


Tom Blomqvist (#98 BMW M6 GT3, ROWE Racing, 21st
“That was a initial time I’ve had a opportunity
to expostulate in a Top Qualifying during a Nordschleife. It was a cool
experience. My laps were good, even if we did remove some time in one or
dual places. Generally speaking, however, we did not have a gait to
set a fastest path times.”

were not where we wanted them. So we struggled with grip. P26 is not
what we had hoped for. However, we have a 24-hour foe forward of us, so
we will sojourn certain and see what we can do tomorrow and on Sunday.”
