BMW Team RLL finishes in seventh and eighth place.
BMW Team RLL had a difficult race weekend in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
Connor De Phillippi and Alexander Sims crossed the finish line in seventh place at the wheel of the #25 BMW M8 GTE at Lime Rock Park. John Edwards and Jesse Krohn finished in eighth place in the #24 sister car. A mechanical issue prevented Edwards and Krohn from getting a better result in the race.
The #25 BMW M8 GTE was on a one-stop refuelling strategy which didn’t go according to plan. Turner Motorsport’s appearance at Lime Rock Park was also dogged by misfortune. The #96 BMW M6 GT3 only managed to complete one race lap. Starting driver Bill Auberlen was hit by the #93 Acura NSX GT3 in the uphill chicane and was forced to retire with front suspension damage. His team-mate Robby Foley therefore didn’t make an appearance in the race.
