Road Atlanta . Second win of the season for BMW Team RLL in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship: Bruno Spengler (CAN) and Connor De Phillippi (USA) took victory in the six-hour race at ‘Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta’ in their #25 MOTUL BMW M8 GTE. After 254 laps, the duo was 4.383 seconds ahead of the #4 Corvette. Jesse Krohn (FIN) and John Edwards (USA) finished third in the #24 MOTUL BMW M8 GTE to join their team-mates on the GTLM podium.

 

BMW Team RLL stepped on the podium for the third consecutive IMSA race weekend capturing the team’s 22nd victory. For Spengler, who joined the team as a regular driver at the beginning of the season, it was the first IMSA victory. De Phillippi and Spengler now stand third in GTLM driver points. Edwards and Krohn stand fifth. Added to their victory at the ‘Rolex 24 At Daytona’, this third place keeps them in the lead of the Michelin Endurance Cup that is made up of the four endurance races of the season. BMW is second in manufacturer points and moves to within eight points of Chevrolet.

 

Bill Auberlen, Robby Foley and Dillon Machavern (all USA) suffered a mechanical issue with the #96 Turner Motorsport BMW M6 GT3 and ultimately finished 11th in the GTD class.

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/.
