Bill Auberlen is 2003 Drivers Champion!

Laguna Seca Raceway, Monterey, CA - 09/06/2003 - With his second place finish this afternoon Bill Auberlen, driving his Turner Motorsport/H&R Springs/Allshocks.com BMW 325i, mathematically won the 2003 Speed Touring Car Drivers Championship. This is the sixth year that the Turner Motorsport/H&R Springs BMW team has been contesting the Touring Championship. This is the first ever Drivers Championship for Turner Motorsport, and BMW, in World Challenge Touring history and the first non-Honda/Acura Championship in seven years.

"I was just pushing really hard and trying to score as many points as I could," Auberlen says. "The R.E.W.A.R.D.S. weight just makes me and the Turner Motorsport guys dig deeper to find more speed. The car was fantastic today - and all season - and nobody in the paddock has worked harder than these guys at getting this Championship. We're still not through and two race wins are left for us to vie for."

The rest of the Championship standings are by no means resolved. More information on the Laguna Seca round of the Speed Touring Car Championship to follow. Touring Car points standings page will be updated soon.
