The Sigalsport Dinan-BMW Daytona Prototype scored its first overall win at the Grand Prix of Miami at Homestead-Miami Speedway Saturday. Veteran BMW racer Bill Auberlen passed the Suntrust Pontiac-Riley of Max Angelelli with 11 laps left in the 400 km race, and held on to win by a 1.79-second margin. It was just the eighth race for the Sigalsport Daytona Prototype team that runs the only BMW-Powered Prototype in the field.
Auberlen’s co-driver Matt Alhadeff had qualified the car 15th on the grid.
Alhadeff handed off to Auberlen 21 laps into the race, during the second yellow flag period of the event. There would be seven yellows in all. Auberlen began his charge through the pack, eventually getting by Angelelli with a dramatic pass.
