Class: Pirelli World Challenge GT

Car #95, #32: Bret Curtis, Bill Ziegler

Unlike our championship-defending No. 97 BMW Z4 GTD in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, the two Turner Z4s in the Pirelli World Challenge GT class are built and raced in full GT3-spec.

Due to Pirelli GT class regulations, the No. 95 and No. 32 GT3-spec cars have the added benefit of being able to utilize electronic driver aids such as traction control, launch control, and ABS. In addition to the electronic aids, the Turner PWC Z4s feature a larger and wider rear wing and have twin carbon fiber dive planes on each side of the front bumper, resulting in an significant increase in downforce.

These are the exact same spec-vehicles raced throughout Europe, Asia and South America at such historic races like the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Spa 24 Hours, Nurburgring 24 Hours and many more.
