  2. Hi...welcome to the Forum Great choice of car, it sometimes pays to drive both to compare and at least you'll never be left wondering what the other one would have been like to drive. Good to have you onboard Cheers . Trevor
  3. BMW Team MTEK returned to the Circuit de la Sarthe (FRA) this Sunday for the official 24 Hours of Le Mans (FRA) test day and ran both cars for the full eight hours with only minor interruptions for set-up changes By the end of the day, the BMW M8 GTE had completed more than 2,200 kilometres of running and the team is feeling prepared for the race in two weeks’ time. “It was great to be back at Le Mans and I think we are as prepared for race week as we can be,” said Philipp Eng (AUT), driver of the #81 BMW M8 GTE. “Myself, Nicky Catsburg and Martin Tomcyzk are fairly happy with the balance and, after today, we are sorted in terms of set-up. We’ll return next week ready to take on the challenge.” The official session comes six weeks after the team completed a 30-hour private test at Magny Cours (FRA), also without any issues, giving the crew and drivers confidence in the reliability of their endurance machine. António Félix da Costa (POR), who will race alongside Augusto Farfus (BRA) and Jesse Krohn (FIN) in car #82 explained: “Last year, we all came here to our first Le Mans with only one World Endurance Championship round under our belt, so we were on the backfoot. This year, the difference is huge with the team and the car so we’re really looking forward to returning and seeing what we can do.”
  4. Hi Jim....welcome to the Forum If the fuse blew before and you replaced it then it must have an issue somewhere in the electrical system to cause the fuse to blow. I would check the replacement fuse hasn't blown and also disconnect components until you eliminate the cause of the overload. My guess is one of the window motors is straining (sticking mechanism, etc) which is causing the electrical overload
