The BMW Rahal Letterman Racing Team proved JOY IS BMW with a double-podium class finish for the BMW M3 GT Coupes in yesterday’s 58th annual American Le Mans Series 12 Hours of Sebring.

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.

    Fantastic result!

    From what I could gather, the F430 was hardly quicker per lap than the M3s, where did the huge gap come from? Man, if only they broadcast here in SA!

      The BMW’s actually laid some faster lap times than the Ferrari but I think Ferrari was just a reliable, well-run program that kept their lead the whole race. The M3’s did a great job holding off other GT teams and keeping tucked in behind the Ferrari’s.
