Rogers and deJong Go Back-to-Back in BMW SIM GT Cup with Road Atlanta Triumph

The last time the BMW SIM GT Cup was in action, Joshua Rogers and Mitchell deJong dominated the top split at Silverstone Circuit in March, leading all but two laps on the way to taking the checkered flag to exorcise the bad luck they encountered in their first two races of 2021. This Sunday at Road Atlanta was more of the same, as the pairing led all but one of the 95 laps completed to score a decisive victory.

Just like in Silverstone, Maximilian Benecke and Enzo Bonito would take second place, but it’d be a close fight; .131 seconds was all that separated the #1 BMW M8 GTE from the #81 car shared by Charlie Collins and Jeremy Bouteloup at the finish line. But while Bonito would hang onto the second position in the chase to the finish line, Collins would lay claim to leading the one lap that Rogers or deJong didn’t over the course of the race.

Road Atlanta saw 49 starters in the top split, a record for 2021 so far. Only 18 of them would finish on the lead lap, five less than Silverstone, but 18 more would finish just one lap down as a vast majority of starters were still running at the checkered flag.

Top split results from Sunday’s BMW SIM GT Cup round at Road Atlanta were as follows:
