BMW confirms RLL return to IMSA, and slightly different driver lineup


BMW Team RLL will return for another season in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, but with some slight alterations from 2014. The manufacturer confirmed the partnership continuation during its annual BMW Motorsport Season Review in Maisach, Germany.

Dirk Werner and new recruit Lucas Luhr join existing drivers Bill Auberlen and John Edwards, with Dirk Mueller and Andy Priaulx out of the U.S. lineup. The new quartet will share the Nos. 24 and 25 BMW Z4 GTEs in the GT Le Mans class, although the specific pairings are yet to be determined.

Additionally, Jens Klingmann, Graham Rahal, Bruno Spengler and Augusto Farfus will round out the quartets for the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

Priaulx will take up residence in a European Z4 GTE entered by Marc VDS Racing in the European Le Mans Series.
