Corvette Places 3rd at Road America
BMW Rahal Letterman Racing Team scored its first victory in its first year of a partnership that saw Joey Hand and Bill Auberlen lead a 1-2 GT2 finish for the new BMW M3. Auberlen and Hand gained nearly a full lap on the rest of the field on an early-race wave-by.
Dirk Mueller and Tommy Milner placed second in their BMW M3, and the Corvette Racing Corvette C6.R of Johnny O'Connell and Jan Magnussen placed third.
It was a perfect sunny day. Very light shower in the am.
A Viper went off track twice causing yellow flags both times. Once at the middle of the race and same car with 30 min. left. If it wasn't for that Corvette might have finished 2nd and 5th. BMW did set a track record
