the race car looks awesome! is that all paint work or is any of it a wrap??

did you guys run in the Devil in the Dark?
It's mostly a wrap, except the roof and the rear hatch, they're just black paint.

We used the Bimmerworks 335 for the DITD 12 hour. We had to stop at dark due to of all things, lighting failure! Ugh! No time to install other lights so we had to take a DNF at 8:30pm. We could have had a top 10, maybe top 5 finish.
I drove for almost 4 hours total. Our third driver was in the car a little over an hour and he felt sick so he got out of the car. He thought that he hydrated enough, but it was clear he was dehydrated, so he was finished for the day. It was only 60 some degrees out, but I was completely soaked under my driving suite. I did feel pretty good. I would have ended up driving about 6 hours total if we could have finished the race.
What engine does this 335 use? N54? How's it hold up to endurance events?
The 335 had about 8,000 miles on it with about 99% of them from track. No real issues at all with the engine. Stock clutch and flywheel just replaced late last year and an O2 sensor broke out of its bung. Other than that, no issues. Still running the stock turbos too.
