Leading GRAND-AM team making cross-country trek to vie for overall honors with its wild, unlimited ex-Continental Tire Series BMW V8 M3 next weekend in the famed California endurance race
Fans of professional sports car racing have likely seen the BimmerWorld Racing team competing in a variety of series over the years, including GRAND-AM's Continental Tire Series where the BMW experts won a pair of Street Tuner races this season. But this December 8th, the BimmerWorld race team, joined by long-term sponsor and technical partner Red Line Oil, will set their sights on an overall win at the grueling 25 Hours of Thunderhill.
Heady drive to sixth by James Clay and John Capestro-Dubets in the No. 80 BMW 328i secures the 2012 GRAND-AM Continental Tire Series Street Tuner Manufacturers' Championship for BMW
The road racing veterans at Virginia-based BimmerWorld Racing closed out their 10-race GRAND-AM Continental Tire Series championship in style last weekend at Lime Rock, achieving a comprehensive set of goals established heading into the event.
With his trio of BMW 328is serving as some of the fastest and most consistent cars in GRAND-AM's Street Tuner class, Clay's team entered Lime Rock with all of his drivers and cars inside the top 10 in their respective championships—an impressive feat in the hotly contested category.
