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.
