Turner Motorsport 3 Hour Update

Rolex 24 At Daytona Hour 3 update–Turner Motorsport

Turner Motorsport Leads Rolex 24 GT Class at 3 Hour Mark

For the first three hours of the Rolex 24 At Daytona, the Turner Motorsport BMW M3 has been able to show a clean pair of heels to the rest of the GT Class field. Currently, the No. 94 holds a 1 lap advantage.

Boris Said opened the race, starting from ninth on the grid. Only an hour and half later, Said took the point, and was able to open enough of an advantage to turn the car over to Bill Auberlen just before the two hour mark.

“The team has learned a lot and is a lot more consistent through the run. It’s really good. I just saved the tires better. I could watch those guys run their tires out and I just waited – just was really patient on the gas.

Auberlen, in turn, grew the advantage during his two hours behind the wheel before he handed off to Paul Dalla Lana on lap 119.

Team Owner Wil Turner on his team’s lead:

“I don’t want to think about it. I’m not superstitious, but I don’t want to think about it. Everything is going well so far, and we’ve benefited from the track position of some of the DP cars that has enabled us to gain a lap.”

“It’s been nice and easy. The car’s got a great balance in the corners and it’s got plenty of power on the straights.”
