BMW Three-Peat Catsburg Breaks Through at Virtual Mid-Ohio to Extend BMW IMSA iRacing Pro Series Win Streak


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – He’d been on the podium in both of the IMSA iRacing Pro Series season’s first two races, but tonight, Nicky Catsburg became a first-time winner in a spirited 90-minute race presented by Hagerty on the virtual Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Driving the No. 10 BMW IMSA Team Black M8 GTE, Catsburg benefited from quick pit work to gain valuable track position over teammate Bruno Spengler and took the lead from Shane van Gisbergen when the New Zealander spun with 26 minutes to go. He also withstood a heavy challenge from Spengler – which ended with Spengler spinning in Turn 1 – going on to win by 3.157 seconds over Robby Foley.

“With tracks like this, it’s quite narrow and small,” said Catsburg, who moved into the series points lead as the only driver in the series with three podiums. “We knew it was going to get messy with traffic and indeed it got messy with traffic. There was quite some action with people touching each other and me. It was very intense but I think this is the first time I had something against Bruno. I mean the other two races he got the better of me and this time I was able to fight him and be quick.

Who is Bruno Spengler?


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – When Bruno Spengler was a small child, it was clear that he wanted to race.
Recently, IMSA fans have witnessed the Canadian’s move to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with BMW Team RLL. He’s already scored podiums in both the Rolex 24 At Daytona and the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts in only five starts.

Even more recently, Spengler has proven a knack for iRacing. The BMW factory driver has won both IMSA iRacing Pro Series races to date. The third round of the season, Thursday’s Hagerty Presents IMSA iRacing at Mid-Ohio, goes green at 6 p.m. ET, with live streaming on iRacing’s Facebook page and YouTube and Twitch channels.
