BMW Ultimate Driving Experience Joins up with Turner Motorsports
The Turner Motorsport BMW M6 GTD Number 96 racing car gained additional support for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar championship races at Road America and Virginia International Raceway, as the BMW NA customer racing team teamed with BMW of North America to race in promotion of the BMW Ultimate Driving Experience.
Privateers Bret Curtis and Justin Marks have co-driven this year with BMW Motorsports driver Jens Klingmann, with Marks and Klingmann teaming to share a third place finish at Shalen’s Six Hours of the Glen in July for a season-best result. Changing things up, former BMW Junior driver Jesse Krohn will team with Klingmann at Road America and Virginia International Raceway.
The BMW Ultimate Driving Experience offers drivers the opportunity to enjoy behind-the-wheel driving programs in a full collection of BMW vehicles, ranging from BMW I and iPerformance vehicles to BMW M and M Performance models. These four events remain on the schedule for this year:
- San Francisco, August 11-17
- Dallas, September 2-10
- Chicago, October 14-22
- New York, November 2-12
In a press release, Trudy Hardy, Vice President of Marketing, BMW of North America, commented, “The Ultimate Driving Experience gives drivers from across the country the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a BMW and experience firsthand why our brand is at the top of its class. Further, drivers participating in the teen driving school, autocross or M control clinic will develop their own skills, gaining experience and confidence while learning under the guidance of our BMW Performance Center instructors.”
