2020 USA GT Current State

The 2020 IMSA Weathertech GT series launches at Daytona in January with a dramatic late race pass and victory for BMW RLL and its M8 GTE entry over the Porsche werks and its new 911 RSR.

JanuaryDaytona2020 DaytonaAt Daytona for the 24 Hour in January, the class race comes to a Rahal Letterman Lanigan BMW M8 GTE under John Edwards (US), Jesse Krohn (FI), Augusto Farfus (BR), and Chaz Mostert (AU) that covers 2798.2 miles (average 116.53 mph), under fifteen seconds ahead of a Porsche driven by Earl Bamber, Laurens Vanthoor, and Mathieu Jaminet. The BMWs and Porsches battle in tight quarters over the entire distance until the #911 Porsche under Nick Tandy passes the class leading #24 BMW during service with two hours remaining. The BMW entry, driven by Krohn, rallies and closes the gap to the Porsche as time drains away, and with only 45 minutes remaining, Krohn attacks Tandy in the Tri-Oval and presses past the Porsche with a tight move at the Horseshoe before pulling away for a dramatic victory, the second consecutive cross for BMW RLL at the Beach.
