IMSA: Eventful race weekend at Lime Rock Park

The second half of this season’s IMSA series got underway at Lime Rock Park (USA) in mid-July. The competitors in the IMSA WeatherTech Championship and the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge had an eventful race weekend at times. On Friday, unsettled weather presented a real challenge for the teams.

In GTD qualifying in the IMSA WeatherTech Championship, the #96 Turner Motorsport BMW M6 GT3 finished seventh. The only way was up for drivers Bill Auberlen and Robby Foley (both USA) in the Saturday race, which was scheduled to last two hours and 40 minutes.



However, an intense thunderstorm forced the race to be suspended after 90 minutes, and it was never re-started. That left Auberlen/Foley in fifth place. They currently lie second in the Drivers’ Championship.

 

Friday’s qualifying for the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge was shortened following a crash. Auberlen qualified second in the #95 Turner Motorsport BMW M4 GT4, which he shares with Dillon Machavern (USA).


In the two-hour race on Saturday, a technical issue resulted in the duo dropping well down the field. They eventually finished 16th in the GS class. Foley and Vincent Barletta (USA) were eighth in class in the #96 BMW M4 GT4.



The AutoTechnic Racing team competed with the #52 BMW M4 GT4, driven by Attilio Albani and Elivan Goulart (both USA). They came home eleventh in the GS class. Auberlen and Machavern continue to lead the GS standings, but are now tied at the top of the standings.
