Dinan and Foley To Co-Drive All-New LIQUI-MOLY BMW M4 GT3
Turner Motorsport will begin its 2022 campaign for the Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS championship with the all-new No. 96 LIQUI-MOLY BMW M4 GT3 and two proven teammates – Michael Dinan and Robby Foley - at Sonoma Raceway on the weekend of April 15-17.
The blue and red dazzle-liveried LIQUI-MOLY BMW M4 GT3 has tested well on Pirelli tires in the pre-season and Michael and Robby have shared time in the new BMW at both Daytona and Sebring in the beginning of the IMSA season.
The 2022 GT World Challenge America season features 13 races across North America. Each race weekend includes two 90-minute races, except the season finale, which is a single eight-hour race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Will Turner – “We have had recent success with the new BMW M4 GT3 in our IMSA program with a fourth-place finish at Sebring. Add the data from the sprint race at Long Beach the weekend before Sonoma I feel confident of a good start to the SRO season with the brand-new BMW GT car. Michael is really maturing as a driver and learning from Robby the same way Robby learned from Bill Auberlen. I know we have a winning combination.”
Michael Dinan – “This is my fourth season in SRO and my second in GT World Challenge America. I’m excited to be kick off the 2022 championship with the Turner team and Robby. We are excited to see how the M4 GT3 does on the Pirellis after a successful race in Sebring. Our goal is to win the championship this year, so we are hoping to hit the ground running with this new M4 platform.”
Robby Foley – “I can't wait to get the SRO season going with Michael in our new M4 GT3. We've had 36 hours of racing so far in 2022 to learn the car, so we're excited to apply that knowledge and continue development on Pirelli's. Sonoma is a place Michael and I have enjoyed a lot of success at in the past, so hopefully that brings us good momentum. On top of that, who doesn't love wine country? See you all in California, let's go!"
Official practice starts on Friday, April 15. Qualifying and Race 1 will take place on Saturday, the 16th. Race 2 takes the green flag Sunday, the 17th.
