Final update: the Z4 GTE ‘s debut is officially over with both cars successfully finishing. However any success beyond that remained elusive with the cars coming in 4th and 7th after 12 grueling hours.

Update: About halfway through the famed 12 hours of Sebring and the BMW Team RLL is currently in second (having just been passed by the Viper for the lead). The Z4 GTE is debuting in the US with this race and so far looking quite quick. Check back for updates and a race recap late tonight.
