BMW Team RLL Troubled by Tire Woes

The pair of M6 GTLMs fielded by BMW Team RLL finished this past weekends Monterey Grand Prix 9th and 10th in a race mired by tire troubles. Using a new specification Michelin, Bobby Rahal’s team struggled to find an optimum setup to suit the rubber, with the race announcers on FOX Sports 1 deeming it similar to driving on ice for drivers Lucas Luhr, John Edwards, Dirk Werner, and Bill Auberlen. The team next heads to two tests at the stroried Watkins Glen circuit where Rahal hopes his team will figure the new compound and be competitive once again by the next round of the WeatherTech SportsCar Series. In the second race featuring PC and GTD cars, Turner Motorsports entered M6 GT3’s finished 5th and 12th respectively. BMW Team RLL next races at the 6 of the Glen July 3rd, so hopefully the next two months of preparations and testing put the M6 GTLM back to the front of the grid.

BMW CCA Foundation Oktoberfest Charity Hot Laps A Huge Success!

Bill Auberlen, Tom Plucinsky, and Mike Renner were on hand to drive the M3s while Brian Redman was behind the wheel of his old friend, the CSL. They tore up the track during the lunch hour at the New Jersey Motorsport Park Track with 54 generous and lucky shotgun riders!

The BMW CCA Foundation raised $11,500 thanks to the generosity of BMW NA as well as it’s members.
