BMW TEAM PTG DOMINATES AT INFINEON RACEWAY

BMW Team PTG drivers Bill Auberlen, Boris Said, Hans Stuck, and Justin Marks' totally dominated the 2.52-mile road course at Infineon Raceway. Team PTG's historic first through fourth-place finish begs the questions: Are the BMW's really that good? And, will they have the horsepower to maintain that dominance at Road America?

HORSEPOWER MAY BE THE KEY TO ROAD AMERICA

Rumor in the paddock has it that Audi and Corvette may have something for BMW this weekend, after BMW totally dominated the GT race at Infineon. Infineon's layout favored the nimble and light BMW M3 which has considerable less horsepower than the V-8 powered Audi RS 6 and the Corvette. Road America has longer straightaways that will allow the bigger more powerful cars to stretch their legs.
