TURNER HEADS TO ROAR BEFORE THE 24 AT DAYTONA WITH EXCITING NEW 2019 PARTNERSHIPS



Amesbury, MA. — January 2nd, 2019 — Turner Motorsport celebrates the New Year and 21st season of racing with a secured super-star driver line up, a strong BMW M6 GT3 racecar, season long plans in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and exciting race partnerships for the 2019 season.

In addition to the return of Liqui Moly Lubricants, H&R Springs, Hilliard Corp, Pagid Brakes and Sonax Car Care, the Turner Motorsport team has partnered up with two more German companies in the OE and aftermarket space, Hengst Filters and Sachs Performance.

Hengst Filter is an automotive company that specializes in filter systems for oil, fuel, air and cabin air filtration. They produce high quality OE filters found in many European and Germany vehicles including the BMW M6 GT3 and M4 GT4.

Sachs Performance is a German manufacturer of automotive parts specializing in powertrain and suspension components for both auto manufacturers as original equipment as well as the aftermarket performance markets. Sachs products can be found in everyday street driven cars as well as in Turner BMW M6 GT3.

“We are looking forward to a strong 2019 season with new and existing sponsors on board,” said Jay Baier, Director of Marketing for Turner. “Last year (and this year) we were able to partner with Liqui Moly who is a dream sponsor for our team. That relationship has helped facilitate two more very strong partnerships with German, performance-oriented companies that we can both race with and sell.”

Jay Baier added, “With Hengst and Sachs on board, this completes a long list of German companies partnered with our BMW race team and ecommerce parts company. It’s great to use and sell such high quality products in both our race cars and in our catalog. This dynamic has proven to work well for everyone involved.”

Since 1998, The Turner Race Team has successfully partnered with brands like H&R Springs and Liqui Moly who produce the highest quality products used on the race cars and sold on the website to BMW owners worldwide. turnerMotorsport.com retails 100,000s of replacement and performance parts for BMWs.

The latest evolution of the Turner Motorsport and Liqui Moly liveries on the BMW M6 GT3 will debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona later this month on January 26th and 27th.

Drivers Bill Auberlen, Robby Foley, Jens Klingmann and Dillon Machavern will all get behind the wheel of the No. 96 GTD class M6 GT3 for the Roar before the 24 this coming weekend to in preparation for the kickoff of the season.

Foley will also appear in the Michelin Pilot Challenge GS class in the BMW M4 GT4 with Sydney and Bruce McKee for both the Roar and the four-hour BMW Endurance Challenge at Daytona.

“It’s amazing that we are already headed to the Roar at Daytona.” Said Will Turner. “It’s been a super quick offseason with a lot of good things coming together including these new partnerships for 2019. We would not be doing what we love without our long time partners like H&R who have stood by us since day one.”

Will Turner added, “I am also very happy to have Liqui Moly back on board as well as our others like Pagid, Hilliard and Sonax. We are very fortunate to have such strong relationships with all these premier automotive companies to use in our racecars and sell on the turnermotorsport.com website.”

The Turner Motorsport BMW M4 GT4 and M6 GT3 will be on track this week in Daytona for the Roar Before the 24 to prepare for the kickoff of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and Michelin Pilot Challenge.
