Ready to roll in Monterey

April 29, 2016


Lucas Luhr likes competing at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and he is ready to roll this morning for the first practice.

The BMW Team RLL driver has a record eight major sports car wins here over the past 14 years, including the GTLM class victory with BMW co-driver John Edwards last year. Luhr has won here with Porsche, Audi, Honda and BMW.

The German is looking for a change of luck after misfortune in the first three races this year.

“After winning Laguna Seca last year the pressure is on,” Luhr said.

“We’ll need some of that luck John and I have been missing in the first three races, but I think we can turn it around there.”

This weekend will be unique for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with split races for the four classes. While the classes usually have their own qualifying session, this weekend Prototype and GTLM will combine to have their own their practice sessions and separate two-hour race.

The PC and GTD class will also team up for their own competition. For the PC teams this is a big opportunity – a chance to race for an overall win.
