Amesbury, Mass. - If it has been tough to reach Will Turner lately, you’ll have to give him some space. He’s a bit busy at the moment with his eponymous Turner Motorsport team just finishing up double-podium result at the June 5 - 6 2021 GT World Challenge America Championship Sports Car Shootout at VIRginia International Raceway.
Racing the BMW M6 GT3 in North America’s top sprint and endurance GT championships, Turner Motorsport is ensuring a winning legacy for BMW’s M6 GT3 racing machine – now in its last season of competition.
Michael Dinan and Robby Foley raced the No. 96 Turner Motorsport Liqui-Moly/ Richard Mile BMW M6 GT3 to a second-place finish overall and in the Pro class in the opening round of the weekend to record their best finish of the GT World Challenge America Championship season. In the second round, a miscue on lap 39 stopped the M6 on track for a few seconds, ultimately dropping the BMW to sixth overall and third place in the Pro class at the checkered flag.
Robby Foley – “What a great weekend at VIR with a double podium! We are beginning to hit a stride as a team and I’m really proud of Michael’s progression, he’s doing a great job. It was amazing to have fans back this weekend. Hopefully, this is the trend, and we’ll see more and more each weekend!”
Michael Dinan – “It was a solid weekend and the team and car both performed great in high heat conditions. I really enjoyed having the fans back at the track, thanks to everyone that came out to watch! I’d also like to thank our amazing sponsors, Liqui Moly and Richard Mille.”
The series returns to action on August 27 – 29 at Road America, in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
