    Thank you for these pics.

    The Turner M6 is excellent, cutting all that weight is what it really needs.

    I was hearing that in the m6 drivers were wrapping their feet with foil, because of the heat of having the engine pushed so close to the fire wall. Seems like the e39 m5 motor is going to have a long life in motorsports which is a good thing.

    Why is that car using the S62?

    I'm not sure, but it kind annoys me. Maybe something to do with either rules, or that they were cheaper to build for racing.

    Looks like the S85 doesn't qualify. Only a maximum compression ratio of 11:1 is allowed.

    From rule book:
    "Four-valve engines larger than 4.35L to a maximum of 5.0L are allowed a maximum compression ratio of 11:1 and a maximum cylinder bore of 3.720 inches."

    The Turner M6 has a chassis built by Riley Technologies and features a tubular frame, with all carbon fiber body work.

    Turner had initially looked at bringing an M3 to Rolex GT, however they felt that the superior aerodynamics of the M6 coupe would help in the Rolex 24 hour race.

    I love Turner's M6! Mid Ohio is a beautiful facility, I wish I'd gotten to see that race in person.

    Exceeded bandwidth on photobucket. Reposted pics. Admin, if you can move them to the first post, that would be great.
