Turner Motorsport team takes Sebring pole position.

SEBRING, FL - 03/13/2003 - For the first-time in Speed Touring Car history a BMW has the honor of being the fastest qualifier at Sebring International Raceway. Bill Auberlen in the #93 Turner Motorsport/H&R Springs BMW 325i took a .797 second advantage over the next fastest driver, Roger Foo.

The Turner Motorsport BMWs have been setting the pace since Tuesday's testing sessions when Will Turner put his #92 Turner Motorsport/H&R Springs BMW 325i at the top of the time sheets. And a Turner BMW notched fastest times in Wednesday's Practice sessions to make a clean sweep so far. All three Turner BMWs will be looking to continue the momentum through Friday's 50-minute race. Turner and Selldorff were slowed during Qualifying because they were forced to run their back-up engines.

Turner Motorsport is no stranger to the fastest qualifying position. Will Turner scored 2 poles and 4 fastest race laps last year. Auberlen praised the balance of his car after the record-setting run saying that the pre-season testing was a big help in getting the most from the car.

Tomorrow's race starts at 1:15pm. A Live Timing & Scoring feature has been added to the World Challenge website. A live feed has been set up at Sebring and it will provide up to the minute position and timing information for all of the drivers. It's the next best thing to being there!
