The No. 25 BMW M6 of Alexander Sims and Bill Auberlen proved too much for Ford Performance at the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen last weekend, forcing the No. 67 Ford GT of Richard Westbrook and Ryan Briscoe to accept a second-in-class finish. The two cars finished about four-and-a-half seconds apart, while the No. 3 Corvette C7.R of Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen claimed third.

The result was a bit of a disappointing one for Ford, which has won a single race so far this season: the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The No. 66 Ford GT of Dirk Müller and Joey Hand qualified first at Watkins Glen, but missed out on a spot on the podium.

But the No. 67 Ford GT of Westbrook and Briscoe did manage at least one accolade, winning the DEKRA Green Racing Award for having the “most environmentally clean, fast, and efficient” GTLM car that day. That award’s given out at each race based on fuel efficiency, emissions, average speed.
