Shelly BMW Confirms, BMW Is Gearing Up For Another Championship Season
March 17th. Sebring. Returning to where is all began.
March 7, 2012 – Buena Park, Calif. – Shelly BMW is excited to confirm, this season BMW Team RLL returns to defend its triple American Le Mans Series GT titles, once again entering two V-8 powered BMW M3 GT racecars.
The 2012 ALMS season opens on March 17th with a promising race: the grueling 12 Hours of Sebring. Back in 1975, when BMW began racing in North America, it scored its very first victory here. This is also where, last season, BMW Team RLL – the partnership of BMW and Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing – swept first and second place in GT.
Last year’s win was a portent of a brilliant season for BMW Team RLL, culminating in the ALMS GT triple crown: Driver Championships for Dirk Müller and Joey Hand, Team Championship, and a second Manufacturer Championship in a row for BMW. Additionally, the team took the Michelin® Green X® Challenge trophy for being the most fuel-efficient team of the season, while BMW won the Green Challenge trophy for having the best fuel efficiency of any manufacturer over the course of the season.
This year, BMW Team RLL will campaign in nine road- and street-racing venues, ending with the 15th Annual Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta on October 20. The competition will be fierce as other teams vie to unseat our champions. Watch the action on espn3.com and cheer on the team at bmwusa.com.
