    1-4 in Grand Sport, and 1-2 in Street Tuner

    Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – Jan. 24, 2014 . . .
    BMW drivers swept the top-four finishing positions in Grand Sport class and the top-two spots in Street Tuner class in Friday’s BMW Performance 200, the opening round of the 2014 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.

    “An ultimate start to the year,” said Gordon McDonnell, BMW NA Motorsport Manager. “We know the BMW is strong at Daytona and a 1-4 in GS and a 1-2 in ST is fantastic – especially in the BMW Performance 200. Congratulations to all the BMW teams and I hope this kind of success is something we can continue.”

    Bill Auberlen and Paul Dalla Lana won overall in the No. 96 Turner Motorsport BMW M3, but were excluded from the results following a post-race technical inspection giving the victory to Shelby Blackstock and Ashley Frieberg in the No. 48 Fall-Line Motorsports BMW M3. The No. 46 Fall-Line Motorsports M3 machine followed in second. Third and fourth were the No. 97 Turner Motorsport and the 03 Rum-Bum Racing cars, respectively.
