Brandon Fry, BMW Team RLL Technical/Racing Operations Director, said: “This is one of the most exhausting weeks of the year for our team and it really shows what motorsport is all about. We don’t have much time at all. Everything has to work perfectly to guarantee a smooth start to the race weekend at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.” More than 5,000 parts, three trucks, two BMW M8 GTEs. On the afternoon of 3rd July both BMW M8 GTEs were loaded onto the team truck. There are around 2,000 more parts in this transporter: from team apparel to spare parts and personal equipment items for the drivers. If everything goes according to plan, the travel time is just under five hours, however, the border crossing can be more problematic. Each individual part must be documented and the BMW Team RLL has to prepare around 25 pages of paperwork just for the first truck. Ideally, the truck should cross the Canadian border in ten minutes but it could just as easily take hours to pass, which is why the team was planning on arrival in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
