    BMW continues its strong ALMS performance, takes pole and front row in qualifying for Mosport Grand Prix

    We do not need to remind you that BMW has won every ALMS race this season do we? Well, let's just say the M3's have been dominating thus far. Dominating to the point they received a "weight adjustment" to attempt to balance things out. Well, even with any adjustments the cars still appear to be very strong having taken the front row for the ALMS race on Sunday (7/25/11). The number 45 Flying Lizard Porsche GT3 RSR qualified in third but was nearly 2/10's off the time of the second M3. Good luck to BMW Motorsport, let's keep the strong showing going.

    BMW finishes 3rd and 4th at the ALMS Mosport Grand Prix 2011 - Penalty on Dirk Werner costs BMW the victory

    Well, unfortuntately, BMW was not able to continue its streak of winning every race this season. The M3's both had the fastest overall laps out of anyone else in the GT class but the number 4 Chevrolet C6R took the win followed by the number 62 Ferrari 458 Italia. The M3 did lead for most of the race but a penalty on Dirk Werner in the number 56 car cost him the lead. It was a penalty for tapping Spencer Pumpelly in the GTC class who arguably should have gotten out of Werner's way. Unfortunate circumstances but clearly the BMW's were the fastest cars on the track.
