Dublin, VA (March 29, 2016) — BimmerWorld, with a long history of both successful racing and customer racing support, will be teaming up with American Endurance Racing (AER) again for the 2016 season.
AER is one of the great new endurance racing series that provides a great place to race a BMW, so the partnership is a natural fit. “AER is the perfect venue for a lot of our customers, and we are excited to be involved as a sponsor for the full 2016 season,” says James Clay, BimmerWorld team owner and president. “The formula of inexpensive team endurance racing in well-sorted and quick but not overly expensive equipment is compelling. We have run fun bang-for-the-buck cars for well over 10 years at the club level, to be both competitive and entertaining. AER has found a sweet spot for where those two goals meet, and we are excited to be involved again this year.”
In addition to providing contingency support for BMW teams in the field, BimmerWorld will campaign their own BMW 325i endurance car in selected events. “As we launch this new program, our BimmerWorld staff racers who primarily focus on the office side of the business, with the support of two of our technical partners, will be running under the BimmerWorld Red Line Oil Racing with OPTIMA Batteries featuring Nick and Phil banner,” explained James.
“While we may not be using the staff and equipment of the BimmerWorld pro team, this isn’t our first rodeo. We know from watching teams like Rahal Letterman Lanigan, Target Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates, and Team TC Design featuring Mark Drennan that even without rolling our transporter, if we have the longest name in the field and bring along our great friends and supporters like OPTIMA and Red Line Oil, we are sure to make the intended splash as we participate alongside our friends and customers in this awesome series.”
The 2016 AER season starts April 22-24 at Watkins Glen, and more information can be found on the AER website (http://www.americanenduranceracing.com/), or call the professionals at BimmerWorld to discuss your next track adventure.
