< Back to News Home First Season Victory for Turner Motorsports at Mid-Ohio

Posted (06/11/2012) -

Bill Auberlen and Paul Dalla Lana captured their first win of the season in the GT class Sunday at Mid-Ohio in the Alcon-equipped No. 94 Turner Motorsports BMW.

 

Della Lana began the 2.75-hour race from the eighth position and moved up to sixth in class before giving Auberlen the wheel. After the driver change Auberlen returned to the track in 14th position and began to steadily move through the field to the front, taking the class lead at 1h36. A pit stop for fuel put Auberlen back to 10th. With 45 minutes remaining and once again in the lead, Auberlen began to accumulate an eight second cushion over second place. A late race caution erased Auberlen’s cushion but he still managed to cross the finish line 0.952 seconds ahead of the No. 69 Ferrari of Jeff Segal.

 

Auberlen noted that the BMW was set up well for the crucial Keyhole, the fourth turn on the 2.258-mile Mid-Ohio track. “We had a very strong car getting off the Keyhole, which is key at Mid-Ohio,” he said. “You need to get off that turn and draft all the way down the straight. We had such a good braking car that people tried to block me on the inside and I actually passed almost everybody on the outside! We had a car that could go almost anywhere.”

 

The Turner Motorsports No. 94 was equipped with the full Alcon brake package at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The race will be televised on SPEED television on June 17th at 12:00 ET. Up next for Grand-Am is Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin on June 23rd.
