GME Finishes 14th In Record Setting Rolex 24 At Daytona

By January 29, 2018News

The annual Rolex 24 was one for the record books with the fewest cautions being thrown, most laps achieved and a first win at the event for Lamborghini. In short, a far different story from that of Fernando Alonso going into the 24-hour race as his United Autosports Ligier LMP2 finished a disappointing 38th.

However, the silver lining to Alonso’s lackluster day is that Turner Motorsport’s LIQUI MOLY, Gas Monkey Energy BMW M6 GT3 can claim victory over the Formula 1 champ with a 34th place overall finish. A disappointing day for the team as they hovered around 14th majority of the 24 hours ultimately finishing 14th in their GTD class. Though the team can hope to seek solace in the efforts of the drivers (Don Yount, Mark Kvamme, Jens Klingmann, Cameron Lawrence, Mark Kvamme and Martin Tomczyk) and Turner team who battled the changing elements, brake issues, a new hood and the car going off course to have it running at the end having turned 733 laps or 2,609 miles.
