Catsburg impressed with BMW M8 potential and flawless reliability at Daytona
Nicky Catsburg and BMW Team RLL teammates Augusto Farfus, John Edwards and Jesse Krohn completed the gruelling opening race of the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship last weekend – the Rolex 24 At Daytona.
For Nicky and BMW Motorsport, the challenge of the 24-hour event was never one to be underestimated, especially given that the event marked the competitive debut of the all-new BMW M8.
Following some expected new car niggles in practice, Edwards took the first stint of the race before Nicky got behind the wheel of the #24 entry. The following day it was Edwards who took the chequered flag in seventh position in class, marking an impressive debut for new package.
