Final stage in Le Mans: Müller and Farfus hope to make up ground.

Le Mans, 13th June 2010. The Le Mans 24 Hours is entering the crucial final phase. Team BMW Motorsport suffered another set-back with four hours to go when Jörg Muller (DE), at that point in fourth place in his BMW M3 GT2, came into the pits with a faulty drive shaft. The team worked feverishly to get the car back onto the track as quickly as possible. Muller rejoined the race 35 minutes later. The no. 78 BMW M3 GT2 is now in sixth place in the LM GT2 class.

Augusto Farfus (BR) will guide the car home at the 78th staging of the 24-hour race at the "Circuit de la Sarthe", after Uwe Alzen (DE) had previously completed his final double stint.

Augusto Farfus (Car Number 78): "Of course, everyone in the team is disappointed that we have lost ground again. However, we will rise to this challenge. There are still a lot of laps to be driven. Who knows what will happen. We will continue to attack and attempt to be in the right place if we are given the chance to improve our position. I hope I can bring our race to a positive close."
