Turner Motorsports looses championship at VIR M3 engine failure

I read that the turner motorsports M3 could not compete at VIR on the Grand American GS series. They were second in the championship and could have won it. That M3 won the most races. The M3 had an engine failure during qualifying and I guess turner motorsport did not have an extra engine. What a shame. There were tons of BMW fans for the October Fest there. Why didn't anybody lend them their engine.

The new mustang won the championship.

With all the fans that were there with plenty of M3s. I would have lend them my engine. But I believe they would not have time to change the engine anyway since they only had about an hour.

Was anybody here present at that race?

For this particular series yes. The M3 engine engine for this series has no mods at all. The most the team can do is blueprint the engine. I believe they don't even allow new Intake system on the M3 engine.

read what is allow for the M3 on page 7.
