Lucas Luhr aiming high for IMSA Long Beach round with BMW

BMW factory driver Lucas Luhr is aiming high for the upcoming IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship round of Long Beach. The German sportscar ace is targeting the GTLM victory at America's most prestigious street course.

BMW Team RLL clinched the class victory last year in the Californian event with the BMW Z4 GTE, now Lucas Luhr and his team-mates are chasing the same result with the brand new BMW M6 GTLM.

The car performed well in both Rolex 24 at Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring where it locked up the front row and took a fine podium at the end of the race.

Lucas Luhr:

Long Beach is one of the coolest tracks and the venue is very special. It will be the first time for the M6 there but I am sure we will be strong.

After the win last year it would be nice to win again in BMW’s 100th year so I’m locking forward to the race. John and I will give 100% to take a good result.
