Priaulx And Muller Set To Race Petit Le Mans

1 Mins read

Andy Priaulx and Jorg Muller are set to be drafted in to the Rahal Letterman BMW Squad for the Petit Le Mans event at Road Atlanta later this month.

Priaulx will join Bill Auberlen and Joey Hand in the #90 car on his American Le Mans debut and Muller, who was a regular in the series in it’s early years will join Dirk Muller and Tommy Milner in the #92 car.

Both drivers tested the BMW M3 GTR last year.

“Andy and Jorg were chosen to join us at Petit due to their base of experience with the M3 GT2 and their aptitudes which match those of our full-season drivers,” said BMW North America’s Martin Birkmann. “Their collective experience in WTCC perfectly rounds out our team.”

The Rahal Letterman team had been running just 2 drivers in the series but team boss Bobby Rahal explained the reason behind adding two more drivers, “From a strategic standpoint, the addition of Jorg and Andy means we can properly manage factors like driver fatigue, which puts us in an even stronger starting position.”
