POSITIVE PROGRESS MADE AT SILVERSTONE

Darren Turner returned to competing on four wheels this weekend, in the Nissan GT-R at the opening round of the 2009 FIA GT Championship at Silverstone. The team made good progress throughout the weekend but ultimately a rear suspension problem ended their race on Sunday afternoon.

Darren's team-mate, Michael Krumm, took the start and completed a good first stint before pitting with what looked like a puncture to his left rear tyre. The team ran through the normal pit-stop procedure and Darren jumped in, ready to take to the track. At this point it was determined that the car had a rear suspension problem so the team took the decision to retire it from the race.

Although Darren didn't complete any race laps today, a lot of positives can be taken from the weekend at Silverstone.

"Of course it's disappointing that I didn't get to race," said Turner. "But the progress we've made over this weekend has been very encouraging. We can go to Oschersleben now in the knowledge that we are going in the right direction."

The Oschersleben round of the FIA GT Championship takes place on June 21st. Darren will be back on track next weekend though for the Spa round of the 2009 Le Mans Series.
