TURNER BMW LOOKS TO CARRY MOMENTUM INTO CANADA. AUBERLEN AND FOLEY TO REJOIN TEAM.

Amesbury, MA -- July 5th, 2018 -- Following a hard earned victory at Watkins Glen International the Turner Motorsport team returns to WeatherTech SportsCar Championship racing action across the border at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park this weekend for the second of two back-to-back races.

Drivers Bill Auberlen and Robby Foley will make their return to the team after a strong performance in Detroit early in June for the Chevrolet Sportscar Grand Prix. The duo scored a seventh place finish in their first appearance together.

Robby Foley commented, "I’m very excited and fortunate to be back in the Turner BMW this weekend at CTMP. Bill and I are looking to build off of the teams momentum after a big win last week, so let’s see what we can do at a track that’s been good to the M6 in the past. A big thanks to those who have supported me to this point, I’m looking forward to the challenge!"

The Turner blue and yellow has experienced strong results at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in recent years with a dominant win in 2016 to mark the first North American win for the BMW M6 GT3. Jens Klingmann and co-driver Bret Curtis were able to put their No. 96 BMW in victory lane after a highly competitive race on the 2.45-mile 10-turn circuit.

"After such an amazing weekend at Watkins Glen, I think I can speak for the entire team in saying that we are very excited to get back racing just a week later," said Will Turner. "The nature of Canadian Tire Motorsport Park definitely suits the strengths of our BMW and with the talent in Robby Foley and Bill Auberlen I am optimistic that we will have a strong weekend, fingers crossed."

Racing action will begin Friday with WeatherTech SportsCar Championship practice and then GTD qualifying on Saturday, July 7th at 12:00pm ET. The race will be LIVE on Sunday at 4:00pm ET on Fox Sports 1. Tune in to catch all the racing action as well as on Turner Motorsport social media.
