BMW M Team RLL Thrilling Podium Finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

BMW M Team RLL Thrilling Podium Finish: The BMW M Team RLL finished third in the highly anticipated Tire Rack’s Battle On The Bricks event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, leaving an indelible mark on the road course. The powerful No. 25 BMW M Hybrid V8, driven by Connor De Phillippi and Nick Yelloly, completed 113 laps in two hours and forty minutes on the challenging 2.439-mile, 14-turn course.

Despite the intense combat, De Phillippi and Yelloly were calm. Only 32.964 seconds have separated them from the winning No. 6 Porsche 963. This incredible performance put the No. 25 team on the podium five times this season. It was a terrific way to follow up their Watkins Glen International success. Unofficial rankings put De Phillippi and Yelloly in fourth place in GTP points. Thirty-eight points separate them from the top spot.

The BMW M Team RLL’s Indianapolis journey was smooth. Philipp Eng and Augusto Farfus of the No. 24 BMW M Hybrid V8 had a rough day. Philipp Eng, starting sixth, had to stop in the pits on the ninth lap and twice more for electrical issues. Even when everything went wrong, Eng persisted. He handed up the torch to Farfus with 50 minutes left. Finished 10th, the No. 24 BMW M Hybrid V8 offered the crew more to think about for the future.

This season, BMW M Team RLL proved their toughness. They won at Watkins Glen, finished second at Sebring and Long Beach, and finished third at CTMP and Indianapolis after a fierce battle. The No. 25 car, piloted by virtuosos De Phillippi and Yelloly, pulled off all of these. Sheldon van der Linde joined them at Sebring. Augusto Farfus and Philipp Eng drove the No. 24 vehicle to a season-best fourth in Long Beach.
