Will Turner on pace for a winning weekend.
Alton, Va October 25, 2002 Under cloudy skies with cold damp conditions, the Turner Motorsport team was setting the pace and showing their race winning ways today. By the afternoon practice, Will Turner had the #92 Turner Motorsport / H&R Springs /Trenton Forging BMW 325i setting the second fastest time of the day.
"We're starting to find our way around here pretty good," said Turner. "It's a wild ride out there. The track is long, fast and extremely busy--. but, like I said, we're getting it figured out. We're getting off the corners pretty quick and carrying corner speed. I'm not sure what we're going to do about the Mazda's straightaway speed-- my guys will figure it out. We'll be there."
Bobby Sak was pleased with his day in the #93 Turner Motorsport / H&R Springs BMW 325i.
"We were running ninth in the last session," said Bobby. "I like the car a lot. I want to try a few different lines in some of the corners, though. Your entrance and exit can really play out on your straightaway speed. With these straight-aways, that means a lot."
Frank Selldorff had worked his way up to 12th by this afternoon's session. Frank worked hard during the afternoon session putting the #94 Turner Motorsport /H&R Springs BMW 325i on the back bumper of teammate, Will Turner.
"I did quite a few laps following the #92 car in the afternoon session," Frank pointed out. "Watching Will's line and trying to stay with him helped speed up my learning curve for this track. Following him forced me to try different things and enable me to feel the difference. It was an excellent exercise."
The team will qualify Saturday for Sunday's final round of the Speed World Challenge Touring Car Championship.
