Turner Motorsport has announced that Michael Dinan and Robby Foley will run the #96 Turner Motorsport M6 GT3 in the SRO GT World Challenge America series. Turner had announced in December that he was returning to the series, where he ran an M6 GT3 in selected races in 2019 with Japanese racers Takuya Shirasaka and Naoto Takeda driving.
Michael Dinan, 22, comes to the team the year after he and Foley, 24, who has raced for Turner since 2018, won the SRO GT4 SprintX drivers’ title in 2020 in a Flying Lizard Aston Martin Vantage GT4.
Team principal Will Turner said, “I am psyched to welcome Michael to Turner Motorsport. We are always on the lookout for talent and I believe the combination of Michael, Robby, Turner Motorsport, and BMW will be tough to beat. Turner Motorsport has a long history in World Challenge competition, and we look forward to a winning season.”
The 2021 SRO World Challenge America Series begins in March at Sonoma Raceway and ends in October at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The series runs two ninety-minute enduros on the first six of its seven race weekends and finishes with a single race at Indianapolis.—Brian Morgan
