The BMW M8 GTE has now won the third race of the season in the IMSA iRacing Pro Series on the Mid-Ohio circuit, remaining unbeaten in the virtual IMSA season after successes at Sebring and Laguna Seca.

BMW Works Driver Nick Catsburg celebrated his first win, coming out on top against Robby Foley from Turner Motorsport and BMW Team RLL Driver Connor De Phillippi in a thrilling race.

Consequently three BMW drivers were on the podium for the third consecutive race. After a mistake in qualifying, Philipp Eng started the race from 46th position but then proceeded to give an impressive recovery performance. He finished fourth to round off the top-four lock-out for BMW. Having emerged victorious from the first two races, Bruno Spengler secured pole position in Mid-Ohio in his BMW M8 GTE before leading the race until it was time to make his pit stop. Catsburg then moved into first place, defending position against Spengler and Foley. Spengler crossed the finish line in sixth place.
