After racing in World Challenge for most of the last decade, BimmerWorld Racing is days away from adding a new chapter to its history. For 2010, the team has moved to Grand-Am's Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series.
The BMW specialists spent the past months preparing two ST-class E90 BMWs to race through the 10-round championship, which kicks off this Friday at Daytona International Raceway in the Fresh From Florida 200.
As team owner and co-driver of the #80 BMW E90, James Clay believes his team is ready for the new series. "We are proud of our success and victories in Touring Car, but we relish the opportunity to take our team into new arenas. We like to push ourselves; it is the core of our business, and racing in the Continental Tire series will teach us new things about the BMW E90 that we can deliver right back to our customers. The endurance format will also test the limits of our E90s and their performance components like never before."
Amid preparations for their first Grand-Am race, Clay announced the return of GearWrench as a major partner for 2010.
