    2012 GRAND-AM Season Takes Green Flag at BMW Performance 200

    2012 GRAND-AM Season Takes Green Flag at BMW Performance 200
    BMW Drivers Ready for 50th Annual Rolex 24 at Daytona WeekendWoodcliff Lake, N.J. – January 20, 2012…
    With the waving of the green flag to start the January 27th BMW Performance 200, the opening round of this year’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the 2012 North American sports car racing season gets underway for more than 50 BMW drivers gathered for the Grand-Am Sports Car Series 50th Rolex 24 at Daytona weekend.

    The BMW Performance 200 will see the 16 BMWs entered in the Grand Sport and Street Tuner classes led to the green flag by a very special new BMW. The 2013 BMW M5 will serve as the race pace car and be displayed at the track throughout the weekend. Additionally, the all-new 2012 BMW 3 Series will make its second public appearance at the Rolex 24 only weeks after making its worldwide debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. The opening round of the CTSCC season has been won by a BMW M3 for the last three seasons and the car has gone on to sweep the GS class titles in the last two years.

    “BMW Performance Parts is thrilled to sponsor the opening round of this year’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge,” said Craig Westbrook, Vice President Aftersales, BMW of North America. “As leaders in the performance parts and accessories market, there is no better place to showcase our passion than on the racetrack.”

    I looked and looked and looked, and could not find anyplace to watch the "200".
    Then i watched the Rolex 24 only to find 2 BMW's from Turner MS in the race among all those Porsche's.

    Speed usually shows the Grand-Am races a couple of weeks after they take place. The 200 is being shown on 2/4 at noon.

    Other than the fact that 25 of the 58 laps were run under full-course caution, it was a great race. Be sure to watch or record Saturday.
