BMW M8 GTE to start Le Mans 24-hour race from 12th and 13th positions – admin

The grid order for the 24 Hours of Le Mans (FRA) is now set; after three qualifying sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, the two BMW M8 GTEs are starting their first races at the legendary “Circuit de la Sarthe” from 12th and 13th positions in the GTE Pro class.

In the first session on Wednesday evening, António Félix da Costa (POR) recorded a personal best of 3:50.579 minutes in the #82 car. That was enough to secure 12th place in the very competitive GTE Pro field. In the sister #81 car, Nick Catsburg (NED) was just 0.017 seconds slower and finished in 13th position. Pole position was claimed by Porsche with the #91 car. The race starts on Saturday at 15:00.
