John Edwards (BMW M Team RLL, No. 25 MOTUL BMW M4 GT3 (P4) : “Certainly this was a disappointing qualifying session for us being almost one second behind the pole sitting Lexus. We had made some changes after yesterday’s practice sessions and thought we would be closer. Rain is anticipated for tomorrow’s race so we hope we will be able to move forward as a wet track is a good equalizer.”
