The IMSA Series offers motorsport in its purest form and – thanks to the passionate fans – a unique atmosphere. It continues a long history of sports car racing in the USA and Canada – a history, in which BMW has always played a major role. Over 30 GT cars go head to head at iconic racetracks. BMW takes on strong opposition from manufacturers such as Corvette, Ford, Porsche and Ferrari. However, it is not only the many big-name manufacturers that make this series so special. The calendar features one classic after another, including the 24 Hours of Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring, and the “Petit Le Mans”. Since 2018, BMW has been taking on the opposition armed with the BMW M8 GTE.

RACING IN AMERICA.

The commitment in North America remains a central pillar of the BMW Motorsport racing programme in 2018. The partnership with BMW Team RLL entered its tenth year. The first highlight for the team from Ohio came early on in the season: the newly-developed BMW M8 GTE made its race debut at the 24-hour race in Daytona. As well as BMW Team RLL in the GTLM class, Turner Motorsport also was in action. The team ran the BMW M6 GTD in the GTD class.

Accumulated experience.

It was back in 2009 that the cooperation began between BMW Motorsport and Bobby Rahal – one of the most successful names in North American motorsport. However, Rahal does not run the team by himself. The acronym RLL stands for the three owners: Rahal, TV presenter David Letterman, and businessman Mike Lanigan. The team is based in Ohio. It is from there that operations are coordinated between BMW of North America and BMW Motorsport.
