BMW driver quotes after the race at Sebring 12 Hours

19.03.2023: Connor De Phillippi (#25 BMW M Hybrid V8, 2nd place GTP class): “I am so happy about our first podium with this programme. The guys and girls have worked so hard for this. We deserve it. We were there at the end, just as we said. That’s what this race is


Connor De Phillippi (#25 BMW M Hybrid V8, 2nd place GTP class): “
I am so happy about our first podium with this programme. The guys and girls have worked so hard for this. We deserve it. We were there at the end, just as we said. That’s what this race is all about.


In the past, we lost this race from the lead from a crash – this time luck was on our side. I am just super happy for everyone. P2 is something we can build on and start fighting forward for the rest of the season.”




Nick Yelloly (#25 BMW M Hybrid V8, 2nd place GTP class):
“It’s a really nice feeling. For BMW M Team RLL and BMW M Motorsport to take this step is huge, i am obviously just very, very happy for everyone here and back in Munich.


It has been many hard months of work and to reward them with some silverware is very nice. We’ve made a good step forward as well. With the general performance we are not quite there yet, but we have shown that we can make a good step. For Long Beach we will hopefully make another one.”




Sheldon van der Linde (#25 BMW M Hybrid V8, 2nd place GTP class)
: “This podium was very unexpected. We were disappointed when the brake issue occurred with one and a half hours to go but then everything turned around. I am super excited to be on the podium.


The guys really deserved it after so much work during the off-season to make this programme a success. I can’t thank everyone enough. The car has made some really good steps forward.”




Augusto Farfus (#24 BMW M Hybrid V8, DNF, GTP class):
“Of course it is very disappointing to end the race after six hours but  we have to take the positives. We have shown here that hard work is paying off. BMW M Team RLL and BMW M Motorsport together have managed to improve the car a lot after Daytona.


And we were on the hunt. Maybe we would not have won the race, but we were running at the front for a certain time. That shows that we have considerably closed the gap. There’s still work to do, we still need to improve but I think, even if we did not finish the race, the positives are greater than the negatives. Most of all because of the great second-place finish of our sister car.”




Madison Snow (#1 Paul Miller Racing BMW M4 GT3, 1st place GTD class): “
It’s great to get another win here at Sebring. Bryan, Corey and I have won here together before – and it’s fantastic to do it again. The car went 12 hours without any issue and the yellow at the end was great because we did not have to push. In the last three minutes of the race it was just go, go, go!”




Michael Dinan (#96 Turner Motorsport BMW M4 GT3, 2nd place GTD class)
: “It definitely was not what we were expecting but I think that’s what so great about IMSA racing. Anything can happen. With three hours to go, I don’t think anyone thought we were in contention of a podium finish but the team did a fantastic job with race strategy which kept us on the lead lap.


We had issues, but Robby and Patrick both had a fantastic drive. Robby was amazing when he passed for second. The fuel saving, the team strategy, it all led to this result. It definitely feels really good to get onto the podium here!”
