The Amesbury, Massachusetts GTD team link up with iconic motorsport brand
After several seasons running the blue and yellow colours of Turner’s own parts and accessories company in the GTD class, Turner Motorsport has just announced a new technical partnership with German lubricants company Liqui Moly.
Following the success of their Bathurst 12 Hour sponsorship, Liqui Moly have expanded their GT presence to North America, becoming the official lubricant supplier and partner of the stalwart BMW team.
A new livery has been released, courtesy of Spotters Guide creator Andy Blackmore. Blackmore is also responsible for the extremely popular ‘Chupacabra’ design featured on P1 Motorsports’ Mercedes-AMG GT3, created the fan favourite ‘R90CK’ throwback livery for the 2015 Nissan GT-R LM NISMO that ran at Le Mans, and is the man behind online sensation Ken Block’s Ford Mustang ‘Hoonicorn’.
“We maintain a long cooperation with German auto companies,” said Peter Baumann, Marketing Director for Liqui Moly. “By participating in the IMSA series and promoting it, we are strengthening our brand awareness and showing the quality of our LIQUI MOLY products because what performs well on the racetrack will also perform well on the road.”
Will Turner, President of Turner Motorsport is delighted with his team’s new partners. “Liqui Moly is a dream partner. Without a premium and proven oil, success in endurance racing is not possible. Liqui Moly offers a complete line of all products we use at the track, in our race shop , and in our exclusively BMW service center.”
Jay Baier, Director of Marketing at Turner Motorsport echoed his boss’ sentiment, adding “I speak for all of us here at Turner Motorsport to say how excited we are to have such a strong partnership with a company and brand like Liqui Moly.”
As well as their current title sponsorship of the Bathurst 12 Hour and TCR frontrunners Team Engstler, Liqui Moly colours have graced racing legends as diverse as the wild Zakspeed Turbo Capri and the UK’s 24 hour 2CV race.
Turner Motorsports’ M6 GT3 will race at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, driven by Jens Klingmann, Mark Kvamme and Don Yount.
