BMW Team RLL is taking tons of effort, together with three successive team podium finishes — including wins by Sims and also Auberlen from the No. 25 entrance in the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen and the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix in Canadian Tire Motorsport Park — also can use more of the exact same this weekend to help keep the championship strain on.

“We have had a terrific run during the past four races, together with three podiums, including two wins which has Alexander and me second in things,” Auberlen said. “Using its long, sweeping corners Road America actually matches the M6 and that I know we could rely on continued our championship battle.”

Exactly the exact same could be said for its two-car Ford GT group, that has quite recent testing expertise under its belt in Road America only before June’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. Team director Mike O’Gara is anticipating a solid performance.

“We tested there at the spring onto our Le Mans bicycle, so it will differ going back today, however, the drivers are comfortable and familiar with the design of the monitor,” O’Gara explained. “it is a fast course, a location in which this car can really stretch its legs. That is the reason why we like it. The minimal configuration we attempt to conduct there is liked by the automobile. We are excited about going back.”

However, maybe the group carrying the maximum endings to Road America is your Porsche GT group, that went 1-2 the previous time outside from the Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park two months back. No. 911 Porsche 911 RSR co-drivers Dirk Werner and Patrick Pilet maintained the Lime Rock success and are included in 17 points of their guide.

(**).”Road America is a racetrack with plenty of personality and a very long heritage,” Pilet explained. “A fantastic challenge. It is demanding and fast, and how it follows the shapes of the slopes reminds me a bit. Naturally, in Road America I constantly think about 2015 if we had a wonderful race there. We proceeded to triumph and began in the back of the area. You do not overlook things that are such. However, Road America has been my all-time preferred racetrack in the usa long before this spectacular victory.”

This sensational success also helped to propel Pilet into the WeatherTech Championship GTLM name in 2015. Since it’s been the last few years who will win at Road America, also is it the catalyst to get a championship?
