ICTSC: Podium for BimmerWorld Racing.

At the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race in Lime Rock Park (USA), the BimmerWorld Racing team celebrated a top-three position in the Street Tuner class. Tyler Cooke (USA) and James Clay (USA) finished third in the number 84 BMW 328i. Their team-mates Greg Liefooghe (USA) and Ari Balogh (USA) finished sixth in the number 81 BMW 328i to make it into the top-ten, as did Michael Johnson (USA) and Stephen Simpson (USA) for the JDC-Miller Motorsports team in the BMW 228i; the duo finished in eighth place in the ST classification.

ADAC GT Masters: Turbulent weekend for the BMW M6 GT3.

The ADAC GT Masters made its second appearance outside Germany this weekend, in Zandvoort (NED). BMW Team Schnitzer experienced two turbulent races with the drivers Philipp Eng (AUT) and Nick Catsburg (NED) in the #42 BMW M6 GT3. After Catsburg’s fourth place in qualifying on Saturday, a rule violation in the first practice session meant a five-place grid penalty. From ninth on the grid, the two drivers showed courageous spirit in a race with two warm-up laps and a safety car period ten minutes before the end of the race. After 34 laps, they finished in sixth place at the “Circuit Park Zandvoort”. The race on Sunday turned into rain roulette. From 20th on the grid, the duo delivered an impressive catch-up in difficult track conditions, which unfortunately went unrewarded in the end. In the battle for fifth place, the #42 BMW M6 GT3 retired after a collision two minutes before the end of the race. Next weekend both Eng and Catsburg will be in action for the ROWE Racing team at the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps (BEL).
