Bill Auberlen and Robby Foley, driving the #96 Turner Motorsport M6 GT3, finished seventh in the GTD class in the IMSA WeatherTech Series race on Belle Isle in Detroit. The 100-minute Belle Isle race was contested by Prototypes and GTD cars; the GTLM class in which the BMW Team RLL M8 GTEs compete did not run there.
It was the first race on the Turner team for Foley, 21, who has run in Mazda MX 5 Cup, the Pirelli World Challenge TCA class, and the IMSA Prototype Challenge class. He qualified the M6 eleventh on the grid on Belle Isle.
Foley and Auberlen moved the car up to seventh during the course of the race. The class win went to Katherine Legge and Mario Farnbacher in an Acura NSX GT3.
