Bilicki Helps Fall-Line Motorsports Drive to a First Place Finish at 12 Hour Endurance Race
Chicago, Illinois (1 November, 2015) - The second running of the ALM 12 Hours at the Autobahn proved to be a success for Bilicki and the Fall-Line Motorsports Team, who finished first in class and a close third overall.
Josh, who co-drove with Thomas Herb and Jim Hamman, had been relatively close with the Fall-Line Motorsports team for several years, but had not driven with the team before this race. Bilicki wasted no time and quickly addapted to the new car team.
"I've been around Fall-Line Motorsports for some time, I just haven't driven with them until now. Many of the faces are familar, so that helps a lot. This is also my first time driving an IMSA Continental Tire Series GS car. The car has much more power than the ST car I raced with Burton Racing earlier this year, but it actually drives very similar."
Thomas Herb would start the race and drive for about an hour and a half, before handing the car off to the next driver in line. Josh woud get in next for his first stint, and eventually hand the car to Jim Hamman. The trio would keep rotating in this fashion until the end of the race. The team ran in third position overall for a good portion of the first six hours of the race. When Josh got into the car for his second stint, the Fall-Line Motorsports Team was running first in class and third overall, but at the end of his stint, he had movied the car into first place overall. The Fall-Line team ran in first place for about an hour, until an issue caused the team to have an unusally long pit stop during Jim Hamman's second stint.
Josh would end up driving the last stint of the race. He got into the car in third place overall, but soon found himself battling with BMW Factory Junior Driver, Trent Hindman, for second place overall. Josh made a successfull pass and stayed ahead of Hindman, until a flat tire forced Josh to make an unscheduled pit top, dropping him back to third place overall, where the team would ultimately finish.
