Bill Auberlen, Tommy Milner and Dirk Werner co-drove the No. 92 BMW M3 GT to a second place finish (seventh overall), finishing 330 laps of the 3.7-mile, 17-turn Sebring International Raceway.
The No. 90 M3 GT co-driven by Joey Hand, Dirk Müller and Andy Priaulx completed the same number of laps to finish third (eighth overall). Hand set a new GT class race record with a 2:00.985 minute lap (lap 185) during his final stint.
Both M3s ran flawlessly for the entire race, turning some of the fastest laps in the closing hours of the race as they chased the class leader which had gained a substantial lead during the race’s second full-course caution period..
The M3's did extremely well and whooped on basically everyone. New Lap record
If it wasn't for the caution, the M3's would have caught and passed the Ferrari. BMW beat the Porsche's and Vette's, very impressive. Looks like BMW learned a lot as they charged hard last year and they will be a force this year. Impressive to see them ahead of so many this early and setting a new class record.
