A year after making his debut at the Daytona 24 Hours, Bruno Spengler is back for more, this time at the wheel of the brand new BMW M6 GTLM.

In 2015, the Canadian driver finished second in the GTLM class, in what was his first 24 hours race (and his first time at Daytona).  This year, he is delighted to work again with the BMW RLL team as well as team mates Bill Auberlen, Dirk Werner and Augusto Farfus.

“I’m so glad to be back in Daytona.  Last year I learned the ropes.  This year I have more experience, after also taking part in the Spa 24 Hours, but this competition format is still fairly new to me.  However, I do know some important things like the track lay out and handling traffic management, which is not easy at Daytona.”

“The Daytona 24 Hours is a fantastic race.  I’ve followed it for year and always wanted to take part in it.  I am proud to be part of the BMW RLL Team and happy to work with Bill, Dirk and Augusto once again.  We are used to operating together and it is very important in a 24 hours race.”

In the 2015 edition of the race, Spengler competed at the wheel of the BMW Z4 GTLM and he drove the GT3 version at the Spa 24 Hours in July.  This year will see the debut of the BMW M6 GTLM.  Indeed, Bruno and his team mates will be the first drivers to run it in the heat of competition, prior to committing the car to a season in IMSA Championship.  The car was the focus of an important development program, including the “Roar before the 24”, a 3-day test held at Daytona two weeks ago.

“It’s a brand new car, fresh from the factory.  Like any other new car, there are little things we need to tweak but, on the whole, we are quite happy with its behaviour, even if it is difficult to tell where we are in relation to our competitors.  I am definitely proud to be driving it for its first competitive outing!”
