Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – Jan. 24, 2014 . . . BMW drivers swept the top-four finishing positions in Grand Sport class and the top-two spots in Street Tuner class in today’s BMW Performance 200, the opening round of the 2014 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.

“An ultimate start to the year, “said Gordon McDonnell, BMWNA Motorsport Manager. “We know the BMW is strong at Daytona and a 1-4 in GS and a 1-2 in ST is fantastic – especially in the BMW Performance 200. Congratulations to all the BMW teams and I hope this kind of success is something we can continue.”

Bill Auberlen and Paul Dalla Lana won overall in the No. 96 Turner Motorsport BMW M3, but were excluded from the results following post-race technical inspection giving the victory to Shelby Blackstock and Ashley Frieberg in the No. 48 Fall-Line Motorsports BMW M3. The No. 46 Fall-Line Motorsports M3 machine followed in second. Third and fourth were the No. 97 Turner Motorsport and the 03 Rum-Bum Racing cars.

Jeff Mosing and Eric Foss, in the No. 56 Murillo Racing BMW 328i, led the No. 81 Bimmerworld BMW 328i to the checkered flag in the Street Tuner class. The victory was the first CTSCC win for both Mosing and Foss. BMW drivers also finished 6-10th in the ST class.

“That was my first start from the pole,” said Mosing. “It was the first time I have felt “butterflies” in quite a few years. Ken (Murrillo) sets the car up for the entire race and the lap times showed that all race long. Eric did a great job to finish the race. With a bit of luck, I believe we’ll be strong all year.”
