Reactions to IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship competition at
Canadian Tire Motorsport Park:

Connor De Phillippi (#25 BMW M8 GTE, 7th place):
“We were a bit out of method in a final hour of a race
due to a plan choice. On one of a final restarts we were able
to get past one of a Porsche’s, yet while battling with a GTD car
when we were lapping him we mislaid a position. It felt good to be in
a brew and battling in a final twenty mins of a race, yet we
need to continue to work hard.”

Alexander Sims (#25 BMW M8 GTE, 7th place):
“If a reserve cars worked out a small bit differently we
could have been in position for a improved result. Unfortunately nothing
unequivocally played into a strategy. At a finish we were in seventh before
anyone pitted and finished seventh. Shame for a #24. They seemed to
have a plan figured out and it looked as yet it was working
out for them until a hit with a Porsche. Overall it was a good
bid from a team.”

Jesse Krohn (#24 BMW M8 GTE, 8th place):
“The group done a good plan call bursting a cars on the
initial yellow. Ultimately we consider we had a shot during a lectern yet we got
driven off a highway and that finished a race.”

John Edwards (#24 BMW M8 GTE, 8th place):
“The automobile felt good, we were tighten and had a good strategy
going on yet unfortunately we weren’t given a possibility to finish it
out and had to retire.”
