Turner Motorsport returns to VIR with their heads held up high as they have three wins and multiple top 13 results since 2005. Markus Palttala driver of the No. 97 Turner BMW M6 GT3 is no stranger to VIR, in 2014 he placed in 1st which later rewarded him to a 3-way tie for first in the championship standings that year. This year will be his second year driving alongside Michael Marsal, both finishing strong last year in 4th for Turner Motorsport in the BMW Z4 GT3.
When asked about their chances of winning at VIR, Markus Palttala had this to say –
“I’m looking forward to returning to ViR, it is a very fun circuit and one of my favorites here in North America. The Z4 was very strong here the past two seasons with results to show it so now it’s time to prove the performance of our new M6 GT3.”
