Sebring. The “BMW M Motorsport Super Weekend” at Sebring (USA) is in full swing. Thursday and Friday saw the qualifying sessions for the BMW M8 GTE in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship 2019. The countdown is underway for the first of the two endurance races at the Sebring International Raceway. The sixth race of the WEC Super Season starts at 16:00 local time for BMW Team MTEK.

 

In qualifying for the 1,000 Miles of Sebring, Augusto Farfus (BRA), António Félix da Costa (POR) and Bruno Spengler (CAN) secured fourth place in the LM GTE Pro class with the #82 BMW M8 GTE. Their team-mates Martin Tomczyk (GER), Nick Catsburg (NED) and Alexander Sims (GBR) will be starting the race from seventh position in the BMW Team MTEK #81 car.

 

In the IMSA series, Jesse Krohn (FIN), John Edwards (USA) and Philipp Eng (AUT), in the BMW Team RLL #24 BMW M8 GTE, will start from sixth position in the GTLM class. The #25 BMW M8 GTE, driven by Tom Blomqvist (GBR), Connor De Phillippi (USA) and Colton Herta (USA), recorded a seventh-place finish in qualifying.

 

“The stage is set for two thrilling races at the Sebring International Raceway,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “Our four BMW M8 GTEs in the WEC and IMSA series have made a good impression thus far. Our experience of Sebring tells us that the grid positions are not decisive. Both races will be long and tough, and the weather could yet have a few surprises in store on Saturday, but BMW Team MTEK and BMW Team RLL have both prepared excellently. Let’s get started with the two races over the ‘BMW M Motorsport Super Weekend’.”

 

The WEC race starts on Friday at 16:00 local time (21:00 CET). The second race of the 2019 IMSA series, the 12 Hours of Sebring, then gets underway on Saturday at 10:40 local time (15:40 CET).

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
