Fully recovered from a massive crash at the previous round, BimmerWorld is ready for Round 5 at Lime Rock Park.
The #80 car sustained rear-end damage at VIR, which set into motion almost a month of repair work to get the car ready for Lime Rock.
Bumps, bruises and a seriously bent BMW have all been healed in the month since the BimmerWorld/GearWrench team last raced, and with the next round of the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Championship this weekend at Lime Rock Park, the Dublin, VA.-based team is ready to get out of the shop and back onto the race track.

Overcoming a massive practice crash, quickly preparing a new car, and a daring race strategy call were just a few of the highlights on the way to an amazing finish at the team's home track.
The two BimmerWorld/Gearwrench cars started back in the field but strategy, consistency and some luck led to a strong finish.
Due to contact on Thursday’s test day, the #80 BimmerWorld/GearWrench car was out of commission. Luckily, RRT Racing came through with a backup car for the weekend.
If BimmerWorld’s maiden season in the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge was the subject of a reality show, viewers of the series would agree that each episode keeps getting better and better.

As Dublin, Va.-based BimmerWorld visits their home track at Virginia International Raceway this weekend for Round 4 of the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the team hopes to enjoy a similar advantage.
