BMW Team RLL placed 2nd and 4th in the ALMS Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta this weekend, concluding the debut season for the new BMW Z4 GTE. BMW Team RLL finished 2nd in the Team standings while Dirk Müller finished 2nd in Driver points for the 2013 season. 

It was a solid fight, but the Falken Tire Porsche held on to the lead through the closing laps and won by less than a second over the BMW.

A New Year, a New Season of World Class Racing

That the Audi R18 TDI would dominate the prototype class this weekend was really no surprise. More like a diesel-powered rocket ship than a race car, the car truly is a technological marvel.

On the other hand the racing was neck-to-neck in the GT field, with BMW vs. Corvette vs. Ferrari vs. Porsche. The talent ran deep as some of the best drivers in the world fought with sprint-car pace for the entire 12 hour race.
