Post Turner Motorsport is at Detroit for the Grand-Am Detroit 200 with 4" of rain on track

Turner Motorsport at Detroit

We just got this amazing photo sent to us by our friends at Turner Motorsport with the #94 car hitting the track with some serious rain causing problems.

The out pit box was under about 6 inches of water this morning but lap times began to pick up in the 2 hour session as the track began to dry out. Lap times started out in the 2:10s and got down to the low 1:40s with Bill Auberlen piloting the #94. The track is very tight and technical.

"It's a learning experience for all the teams and drivers, not many of us have been hear before." - Will Turner
Paul Dalla Lana put in some laps this morning to familiarize himself with the track and get some seat time. The wet conditions have made it difficult to really get a good handle on the technicalities of the track.

Hopefully the track will dry out and Turner Motorsport can pull out a great weekend at Detroit. As of this morning's practice session, the #94 car was 2nd fastest in the GT class! Catch the race on SPEED television on June 2nd at 5:00 PM!
